We use the per Item link properties on change orders for change descriptions of each item. Please allow the use of carriage return/linefeeds. We frequently have many details to enter and currently we have to use semicolons or similar to delineate changes. The detailed description allows multiline, how about text UDPs.
Vault report templates use an older RDLC file format. Because of the older format, newer versions of Visual Studio cannot be used to edit these files.
The biggest advantage of the old RDLC format is that there are free editors available. I tested out Visual Stuido Express 2010 and 2012, and they do not support RDLC editing. I'm not sure if there are any free third-party editors for the new format.
The system should have a setting that disables the system ACL security (lifecycle) being applied to the Files on State change or the Folder ACL security should be able to be set to override the State security.
At present I believe that the only way to achieve this is to manually deselect the Security Override option on the File details security tab:
The Application should provide this option in the administration settings
i.e. if configured automatically resets the file to its original object based security after any state change.
No need to Combine ACL Security, just need a simple on / off to the system security overiding the folder security.
For those who have established an item lifecycle workflow through change orders (that was the only option a few years ago), the ability to hide or make secondary the file selection option would be helpful. As soon as files made their appearance, they became the default when adding records to a change order.
