Circular Reference Warning

Status: New Idea
by Valued Mentor on ‎07-22-2014 08:47 AM

Have Vault warn users that a circular reference exists when checking in documents, at the very least.

Currently, I can check-in documents with a circular reference.  No warning appears, and the 'Uses' tab displays incorrectly the relationships.

Saved searches need to be saved on Vault server (global) not locally on client (xml).

Would like to have an administrator option to force a date watermark to be printed on drawings when printed from the thin client. Where I work we have to keep track of all controlled documents, but it is states in our policies that once a drawing is printed from vault, it is no longer controlled. Well we have come into problems where manufacturing are printing out drawings months ahead of time and missing crucial revisions and we have no way of knowing when the prints they are using were printed from vault.

 

Water mark only needs to be along the edge of the printing area and to contain the day, month, and year.

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...

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

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.

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.

Death to numeric error codes

Status: New Idea
by Employee 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".

Allow UDPs to have multiline text

Status: New Idea
by Contributor dmiller on ‎06-11-2014 03:29 PM

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.

Gentlemen,

 

Issue:

 

Read only files or "non-checked out" files, continue to be prompted for saving inside of an Inventor assembly model. Why is this happening? I know the little messages (see Vault messages below) are supposed to let you know the file is not being saved back to Vault, but something is happening. Somehow the files become edited out of turn, which means they're being saved locally somehow. Then the Vault file and the workspace file are out of sync.

 

Solution:

 

Can we just remove the Vaulted "read only" files from the assembly save dialog all together?

Is it possible to not change the local file in the certain way that makes Vault see it out of sync?

 

I have Vaulted released files that are part of assemblies that are checked out for editing and somehow the parts of the assembly that are not checked out seem to always become out of sync.

 

Also, some of these parts are iParts.

 

Please give this post Kudos if you have the "read only" file out of sync with Vault issue.

Autodesk: Please consider my request. Thanks.

 

Vault Messages:

 

"Write enable (not checked out from Vault)"

 "'XXXXXX.iam' is currently locked. Do you want to continue editing anyway?  Your changes will not get saved to the Vault."

Retaining column spacing and window sizes

Status: New Idea

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