Grouping sheets by Revision in Project Browser

I had a bit of a problem using Revit OOTB (out of the box) parameters to group sheets by Revision, so I did it super-quickly using a custom parameter.

Here are the steps:
  1. Add a new custom parameter to sheets, such as 'Sheet Revision Group' or similar.
  2. Open a schedule that shows the Revision you would like to group, and add this parameter to the schedule.
  3. Modify the custom parameter on all the sheets to match the Revision (you can do this quickly by toggling the 'Itemize each instance' tick box).
  4. Now you can easily use this parameter to group your sheets by the Revision.
Please note that this technique forms a 'break' between Revit native revision data and the custom parameter, so only use this technique if you understand this issue.

I have provided a quick video of the technique:
