    We can add new fields to schedules by using Shared Parameters. Use the following steps to create a Part Number field in a schedule.

    Step 1: Ribbon>Manage Tab>Settings Panel>Shared Parameters.

    You have two options – Create a new Shared Parameter file or Navigate to an existing Shared Parameter file. We will navigate to an existing Shared Parameter txt’ file. To do this click the browse button and navigate to wherever the Shared Parameter txt’ file was saved. Once you have located the Parameter file, double click on it and the path for the file will show up in the Edit Shared Parameters dialogue box. The Parameter Group will also display and all of the created Shared Parameters will be listed.
