Deleting linked Room
When tracking is activated and you delete a Revit Room, you will be asked whether you'd like to leave the Room in the Revit schedule and update dRofus with the latest design information.
When tracking is activated and changes are made to a room, space, or area in the model that is related to the current configuration, the entire configuration is synchronized accordingly.
For example, if a wall moves to change the Design Area, the Room Name will also update when:
Design Area is configured in Revit to update dRofus
Room Name is configured to update the Revit Room Name from dRofus
