It would be nice to manage things like saved searches, grid settings and plug-ins through the Vault Settings window instead of copying files to each Vault user's computer.
Project Thunderdome is a good start, but I would like to go beyond Thunderdome. It would be better if the app were easier to use and built into Vault.
Selectable filter and serach definitions should be distributed with this tool as well.
I like to send the settings to a list of people/groups. Some users have a different role in the organisation and like to use different columns and table filters.

settings can always be overruledbyAdmins.
UserProfiles Profile for each user that was inherited from all parent profiles.
As stated above, the admin specifiesinparentprofilessotheuser
canonlyoverrideoraddsettings. Resetting User settings to
(company) defaults becomes an easy task by just clearing the
This also means the settings/profiles are stored in the Vault database and not local.
This can make the life of an admin a lot easier as well as that of the user.
