View Filter Walls by Function

I've noticed some Revit users making Worksets in order to manage visibility. While this can be done it's not really necessary or advisable. Worksets can create more work for the user if they are used like layers in AutoCAD. One such example I've seen is a Workset for interior and exterior walls. View filters can be used to filter walls based upon the 'function' parameter in the wall's Type Properties. Walls Types can be defined as Interior, Exterior etc. Then you can make a View Filter based upon the wall's function which is selected automatically.

How to make a View Filter:

New Filter, call it 'Interior Walls'
Select 'Walls' as the Category
Filter by: Function
Equals: Interior
Add-Interior Walls
Turn on/off the visibility or override the graphics
