Renaming Families in The Production Phase Directly with Dynamo

I’m doing some model reconciliation and need to rename some families (ideally so that when opened up in the family editor with the new family name it could be “saved as”). There are a number of threads on the forum about the workflow. However, I can not replicate the results seen online. As one can see the node returned successful true but it did not get named like the other examples online.

Scratching my head, I’m working if its a version issue? I’m on REVIT 2018.3 and Dynamo 2.0.2. Does one have to rename all the elements at once for it to process smoothly?

I believe the SetName node only works on Types, not instances because a particular instance does not have a Name. Use the Element.Type node from the selection and see if that work.
