I have different schedule sets that I can use in different buildings. Is it possible to re-use those schedule sets in different buildings. I know now how to load libraries, so I can re-use schedules, thanks to David Goldwasser, but it would help if I can re-use full schedule sets too.

In the OS App you can currently load any OSM as a library file using 'File->Load Library'. You can then drag things from your library to the active model. If you drag a schedule set all of the schedules associated will be brought in too.

You can't current import all schedules and schedule sets in another OSM at once in the app. These can be imported using the OpenStudio SketchUp plug-in using 'Extensions->OpenStudio->Import->Import Schedules' this will import schedules and schedules sets (code is here). We have plans to move functionality that is only in the plug-in into the OS app in the near future, stay tuned!

Thanks a million, that works and it's a cool feature, I guess I should have seen it myself by the way. I start liking this program more and more.

Another thing, I wanted to re-use similar schedules as well, so I wanted them to pop-up in the library, so I saved the osm file with a different version name and loaded the library of the previous version, so I could use the re-use the just made schedules and use close to the same settings. Might be a tip for others that read this ;)

Does this work also for constructions? Because when I try importing a construction nothing happens in my OS model (no new constructions in the inspector or in the OS GUI).

If you load another OSM as a library nothing happens until you drag a construction in to your model from the library tab.
