It would be very nice to be able to assign a numbering scheme per file category. That way if certain files need to conform to a particular naming scheme, they can. Others might be able to be manually numbered.
Autonumber on check-in would also be useful. If someone is working offline (in the field or at home for example), when they get back on the network they could check in the files and choose between the available numbering schemes for the file category that they chose (or was selected for them).
Being able to AutoNumber the members of a table driven model would be very useful.
An add-in that would allow a unique property to be generated and assigned would would allow movement away from the requirement for file name uniqueness. It would also be useful in other, less drastic applications like reference designators.
I have seen an example of how the shortcut for the web client can include a windows authentication login to automatically log that person in. It would be useful to have a way to push the credentials of a local vault account through the Web client log in process.
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.
Vault must check if the file is locked or not before asking to check out.
If the file is locked => don't ask, just open-it read only.
If the file is not locked => ask if you want to check out.
Thanks in advance.
Please redesign the Job Processor so it doesn't open and close Inventor/AutoCAD for each and every job it performs, its highly inefficient and slow as a sloth. It should only open and close Inventor if it needs to change the project file. But I assume it just uses the Vault project file set in Vault Options.
It seems like there's no BOM data from Revit,Architecture,Plant 3D. Can we believe that Autodesk will try to create something likely?
to copy a design needs often a lot of time to rename.
If the copy should bei in the same folder, you have to delete at every file the " (2)" and rename it.
There are the options prefix and suffix but i think its not enough.With them you can olny add something, not replace ore delete.
With options like rename it will be quicker.
You have files with speeking filenames like this:
and want to make this:
you have need a lot of time.
At my point, it miss the ability to go from the software file directly to the same file in the vault explorer.
It would be perfect to be able to right click in the navigator/explorator of the software where we are working right now to directly have the vault explorer open and the same file selected. Or, at least, visible.
You can actually open a file from vault but not the other way.
