To ensure that all sample files presented in this page are easy to understand, we recommend you do take the following steps. There is a beginner template provided below for you to get started with your contribution quickly!
Create a Title Block
A title block will help the user identify all the requirements needed to run the workflow (Revit version, required dynamo packages, etc.). The title block will also provide a description that will help explain what the workflow does and how is it useful.
You can copy a panel from an existing document and change the information in it so it suits your workflow
Organize Nodes Into Groups
Organizing nodes into groups will help the user to understand how the workflow is structured. Groups should have comments that indicate the general purpose of the group of nodes.
Follow Color Guidelines
We use a consistent color pallet through out our workflows. Don't forget to use this color pallet in your workflow.
Inputs - Pink
Generators - Green
Display - Blue
Metrics - Orange

In addition to the breakdown above, we have provided sample node groupings in the template.
