This is quite an annoying issue. I've created several Search Folders in Vault, which contain pretty complex search-parameters. Every time we migrate to a newer version of Vault (almost every year) I have to manually 'redesign' these search criteria... FOR EACH WORKSTATION THAT USES VAULT in our company!
It would be a great improvement of Vault Basic to incorporate a tool/function to export/backup AND import the search folders. Can't imagine other users don't think the same.
When starting Vault Explorer (all flavours) 2013/2014/2015. the loading splash screen stays on top of everything while Vault loads. There is no way to hide it. This means you can't look at or do anything else in windows while you wait for the application to load. Where it is particularly frustrating, is when an error message pops up on loading and ends up hidden behind the splash screen. The only way you can continue, is to click on the message box in the task bar, and then use "Alt+Spacebar+M" and the arrow keys or mouse, to move the error dialog out from behind the splash screen.
I believe this is a regression. I'm sure that this behaviour was not present in earlier releases, but I could be wrong. More importantly, it is inconsistent with every other Autodesk product I have used. Usually, while the application is loading, you can click somewhere other than the splash screen, and it will hide it behind the active window.
It would be nice if we could perform a Vault Revise command while inside of a Change Order. We're able to do such commands as Change State and Change Catagory inside the Change Order but not Revise? It makes it a pain as a Change Administrator when I notice a Change Order coming through where a file needs to have the revisions matched in Vault to the revision of the Inventor iproperty or AutoCAd border revision. Currently you have to right click on the offending file and then select "Go to folder" to quickly go to that file and then perform a Revise command. It would save a ton of time if we could do this command inside of the Change Order just like most other commands.
I would like to see the ability to make a group an ECO Approver. Creating routing lists would be a lot easier if we could have approval groups set up for our departments that need to approve ECO's.
We would like to use "Unanimous Approval" but it can be tough, because an ECO can get held up if someone is out one day, or on vacation. Approval groups could be set up so that as long as someone from the group approves, the ECO can move on. Vault could still record who did the actual approval, but it wouldn't have to be just one specific person.
