I'm worried about the quality of the Wiki help content. I posted an update to the BOM details months ago. It got accepted but they accepted a section of the help I wrote where Autodesk should have contributed for clarification. Unfortunately they haven't. Check it out:
Check out the live document here: http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Inventor/enu/2012/Hel
Can someone from Autodesk get onto this please & maybe add some references to how Vault Pro's Item master deals with these different BOM structure settings... Or link through to those references in the Vault Wiki help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Next time you should include "Autodesk is a bunch of poo-poo heads"
I've updated the WikiHelp page with a bulleted list similar to the other sections. I've also forwarded this post to a Vault author to answer your Vault question.
For those interested, we have two levels of moderation in the WikiHelp. The first is to check for appropriateness before making the changes public (so if you call us poo-poo heads, we'll probably delete that part ). The next level is to check for technical correctness. In your case, the info was correct, we just had not gotten to additions yet.
Thanks for keeping us on-task and for contributing to the WikiHelp!

Well clearly the "first level" missed that.
If your process is to check for "technical correctness" AFTER is online for the world to see that is a backwards "poo poo head" method.
Good thing Autodesk doesn't do a wiki for bomb disarming.. "oops did it say to cut the red wire"
Agreed. I can see that the way I worded my response implies an order which was not my intent. I should have said there are two groups who monitor the wiki. Moderators check if content is appropriate. Subject Matter Experts check if content is correct. I don't know why the content was published with the "Autodesk add info here" comment (maybe as a flag after info was gathered).
Now that our content is open to users, Autodesk needs to ensure that user-submitted edits are correct. No system is perfect but I believe we have a great track record so far.
There are a lot of people that watch the wiki and the discussion forums, so please do keep contributing and letting us know what you think.
I think you need to do a rollback to Inventor 2011 that way we users have our classic Interface back and roll back the help to Release 6 so it works wiki help how can I say this um stinks...................
Oh one more thing make a better help for ilogic.......
I added "Autodesk add info here" fully expecting it to be edited out and replaced with the content needed.
Thanks for getting back to me Patrick. I may have to slip in a poo-poo head type statement at some point to test your systems. hehe.
