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.

I completely agree with the original poster.


It's not clear how to View or Download the drawing and I'm IT. The average shop floor worker is not generally computer-savvy and will have an even more difficult time. They will not be able to figure out that they need to HOVER over the thumbnail then click on an small icon. Then click the DWF icon after that... (also see this wish


Here is an example of what I'd like to see (I'm slightly exagerating on the size!). Thank you.

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.

Allow UDPs to have multiline text

Status: New Idea

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.

Retaining column spacing and window sizes

Some windows do not retain column spacing from one time to the next, such as Copy Design.

Have an option with the 'Open from Vault' within AutoCAD, so the External References are automatically unloaded.


This would make opening "huge" layout drawings with many x-refs much faster, then the user can manually select which xrefs to load.

Also, it will help in troubleshooting when receiving fatal errors when opening a drawing with xrefs.

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.

Please Please Please...........

Hide item or file option for change orders

Status: New Idea
by dcoulam3 on ‎06-11-2014 07:39 AM

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.
