Re-Index Properties NOT from Server

Status: New Idea
by Valued Mentor on ‎06-23-2014 08:23 AM

I work at a company, where we don't have direct 'easily' attainable access to the Vault server.

A GREAT addition to the client 'admin' area, is the option to start a re-index of properties.

Death to numeric error codes

Status: New Idea
by Employee Redmond.D on ‎05-23-2014 07:18 AM

I see no reason for Vault to use numeric codes to represent errors.  It would be much better if the error codes used words instead.  For example, "InvalidUserPassword" is a much more useful error code than "301".

Vault CUI Needed

Status: New Idea
by Valued Mentor on ‎06-19-2014 08:06 AM

Just like in AutoCAD, where the CUI can manage any custom toolbars/ribbons/menus, we need a similar function with Vault.

A CUI interface is needed, so we can customize the Vault client how we would like it.

 

Managed / Customized by the Vault CUI:

  • Ribbons
  • Menus
  • Right-Click Menus
  • Default Workspace Sync Settings
  • Set default 'Saved Searches'
  • Set default 'Shortcuts'

This CUI should be associated to the 'Administration / Vault Settings' area.

We have a series of part numbering schemes created over the last couple years.

When viewing the number schemes in the Creation Tool, they are listed in alphabetical order.

However, when actually using the number schemes to create new part numbers, they are listed in order of creation. (See snapshot.)

It would be good to see this list in alphabetical (alphanumeric) order.

 

Note: This same behavior is seen with the ECO routing list.

Backup or Exporting My Search Folders

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor miechh on ‎04-17-2014 02:46 AM

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.

Are you referring to Saved Searches?

The Group window under Group Management cannot be resized to display a long list of roles, and the list of members cannot be scrolled in Vault 2013.

Adding these features would be helpful.

Email reminder for checked out files

Status: Accepted
by Contributor krystianwiatr on ‎11-05-2013 08:17 AM

I found this post on the forum:

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Vault-General/Wish-Email-reminder-for-checked-out-files/m-p/4585019#M5...

 

that was back in 2008, and as far as I know there is still nothing like this available. I think it would really help manage vault files.

I tried having them create a saved search, but it needs to be more of a "in the face" reminder.

It could also be a popup when you login that says something like... "you have X number of files that have been checked out for X number of days, would you like to checkin the files now?" Granted this may be tougher since you will have to use Inventor to do the actual checkin."

 

thanks,

Improved Vault Users & Groups Managment

Status: Accepted
by Andrew1307 on ‎05-20-2014 09:38 AM

As it currently stands it is not possible to delete users and groups within Autodesk Vault. 

 

This is a problem. I understand Autodesk's stance on that the users need to be retained for historical reasons, however the management side of things needs to be improved. 

 

For example I created a group and users that were never used. Why can't I delete them? Objects that were never used should be allowed to be deleted. Also as the database grows and users are hired and terminated, the list will grow to an unmanageable mess.

 

What has happened to me is that I am in the middle of implementing Vault for my company. When I first set it up I created users. However, since then we have switched to a Domain and have now imported the Domain users and groups to use. Now I have groups and users that have never been used that I have no way of deleting or using for anything else. 

 

I have found blogs and forum posts suggesting that users be diabled and renamed so that they are sorted appropriately. This is a hack solution at best and not a real solution to the problem. 

 

As I see it two things need to happen:

 

1. Unused users and groups need to be allowed to be deleted. 

2. There needs to be additional options and sorting methods for used users and groups that are no longer active. ie. Once they are disabled they are moved to a different list and only retained for historical purposes.

Can you provide some examples of other software applications that you would consider having a really good user management interface?

Hello,

 

Can you add a message when accessing Tools/administration/Vault settings or Global settings.

 

The content of the message:

Information: You don't have administrator right, some options are not accessible.

 

Thanks in advance.

Replace multiple component in one step

Status: New Idea
by ian.mengel on ‎05-07-2014 12:39 AM

I am relatively new to Vault and have come across numerous instances where parts have been duplicated in multiple file locations. I know the replace component is available but you need to drill down each time for every same part that you want to replace. Can this be simplified so that you can either do a replace all or alternatively the ability to copy and paste the path for each instance.
