As custom content center parts are published and developed it is nearly impossible to get the correct library or folder structure right the first time.  So, it becomes necessary to move files around in this process.  The problem is parts cannot be moved within the content center so it becomes necessary to delete them out of the CC and republish them.  This is crazy!!  Not to mention a lot of work.  Please lets place the functionality within the CC to be able to move parts around. 

Please see the attached thread.



While we are on the topic of the CC, another suggestion is quite often when parts are published to the content center (usually from iparts) either additional parts get added to the factory or something changes within the factory file after the fact.  Again in order to get these changes within the CC, the originals have to be deleted and republished.  There should be a way to snychronize the parts in the CC to match the originals on the local drives.  Kind of like Inventor to Vault.

This is kind of a double idea wrapped into one!!! :smileyhappy:

Hello - the "Move Parts within the Content Center after they are Published" request is posted here & has been accepted:

Please be sure to cast kudos for this function there.


This Idea should be used to capture requests/kudos for the Sync CC with Original on Local Drive Idea.  As such, I did not wish to change this idea status as Duplicate.  In the future please attempt to keep Ideas isolated to a single idea.  Often times great ideas may burried or overlooked when they exist beside a cluster of ideas.  Thanks! Dan
