There is no Geometric Shape schedule so you need to use a different schedule type.  This means you have to either use a different Symbol Category (one that has a schedule) or you need to block your symbol after you create it, open the block, check Treat as One Object, and select the desired object type under Include In Schedule.

why would chief let you create a symbol typ ( geometric shape ) that could not go to a schedule? does not make much sense 

that they would create an unusable category. 

 

That's only true if your sole purpose for creating a symbol is to add it to a schedule.  There are plenty of other reason to use symbols though.

that was not the point all of the other categorys in symbols type will go to a schedule so I thought this was no exception my mistake 

 

Sorry, this is simply not true.  Cabinet Door/Drawer symbols will not, Door symbols will not, Geometric Shapes will not, Hardware symbols will not, Millwork symbols will not, Molding symbols will not, and Sprinkler symbols will not. 

 

Note that a few of the above will report to a schedule when included as accessory parts of a parent object, but for all intents and purposes, less than half of the symbol types will report to a schedule like what you're looking for.
