As Vault administrator I found myself constantly moving Inventor files between folder with different security.
Everything works fine except for folders with Configuration factory members (suppose you know that those folders are moved only as a result of move factory-model).
Configuration factory model inherit security of destination folder (as expected) but folder with configuration members keep initial security.
Thus I'm constantly fixing security of those folders manually.
Vault users are most likely desire the same security of member and factory. Please add some more inteligence to the process.
For enviroments where IT controls the server, and Engineering can't access it easily it'd be nice if Engineering could add a list of blocks to index from the client side. Maybe add access to this in the global settings under integrations.
Maybe in Vault Pro or Colaboration this is a function, but in workgroup the ability to roll back to a previous revision is not there. I have had this function in other PDM softwares. This needs to be considered strongly as a much needed enhancement.
This may be a stretch, but would be a good way of communicating Vault Change Orders to non-Vault Pro users who need to be notification users and actually need to view the Change Order. Outlook has the Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks buttons on the lower left. How about a Change Order Add-in for Outlook to add to that list.
It could work similar to the Mail view where there is a list of Change Orders (from the users worklist) filtered by the Status of the Change Order and due date. Use the preview pane on the right for showing the contents of the Change Order. It could be just a cover sheet detailing the contents.
Right now we have users on the Notification list who do not have Vault Pro Client (do we really need to use up a license to view Change Orders?????), so the notification emails they receive are pretty much worthless as the emails do not contain Change Order details.
A customer of ours has the following request...
Send hyperlink of a vault folder via email option.
Instead of having to send a hyperlink for each file, just allowing one for the folder they reside in would be a simple less intensive process.
Thanks for the consideration.
I would like to be able to select which CAD the Job Processor uses in stead of True View. True View does not handle specific cad object wery well like Civil 3D objects (styles and labels). I could imagine also Map 3D display manager objects, AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP objects.
How many times to you put something in the search box only to find that you've previously navigated to the wrong folder? And then when you move to the correct folder, Vault resets the search field and you have to type everything back in again?
This happens to me all the time. Wouldn't it be great if the search box didn't reset itself when we navigate between folders? I think so.
Can we please be a little more descriptive in the error messages?
I get a message that tells me I cannot move a specific file in the vault from one location to another.
The message reads "File Cannot be moved" looking at the details it says "File could not be moved due to vault error"
Really? Why couldn't it have explained to the detail of saying one of the factory files was checked out causing this file not to be moved. This is just one example. I would like to see all messages be a little more descriptive.
Side note. I would like to see less messages as well. That is more of how the software is written though.
Probably a different idea for a different day.
