Families & Shared Parameters

Our third workshop was held August 3rd, and presented courtesy of Advanced Solutions. Jason Mounteer presented how to create and modify families. He included important advice along the way such as the importance of "flexing" your families to test the functionality of their constraints. Jason then dove into the world of shared parameters, and how these can be leveraged to schedule information embedded in families.
