Visualization Watermarks by Category & State

Status: Accepted
by *Expert Elite* on ‎09-26-2013 07:23 AM

Right now Item Visualization watermarks are limited to being set by Lifecycle state, and of course in Item Master you cannot add lifecycle states.  I would like to be able to set them by state AND category.  For example, a production print, set to Released, would say Approved For Construction... whereas a quote print, also released, would say something like Proposal - Not Approved.... or somehting like that.


Just needs to be more flexibility in general on watermarks.  The user or admin should have more options and control.

Can you add the possibility to export he BOM of an assembly without using items?


All is present in the databse in order to do that (the BOMBlob is storing all information in order to perform this operation).


Thanks in advance.

If you are exporting the BOM without the use of an Item, what format should the export be in and what would you be importing it into?

There should be a priview-like the prview in the Windows explorer-for common files like:







There should be at least a thumbnail of the file's first page. The best variant would be preview where the user can scroll through!

Thank you for posting this idea. I have merge another post with this one as they are asking for the same feature enhancement.

Hi, for project where there's different skateholders and users, It would be nice to build a Dashboard from the project using different excel linked, 


There's a post at the forum where somebody asks how to check-in two xls files linked and checkin at time.


At this moment, when you try to checkin an xls file with links with anothers xls files, Vault doesn`t recognize that link....



Status: Future Consideration
Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, at this time this is a limitation as to how much excel exposes it links through the API.

We are using VP 2013 and Dynamics Axapta in our company. We export complete BOM's with DWF files to DAX. Problem is that you don't know if DWF is out of date or system controlled(made by job server). So before release we check the top of the BOM with the pack and go function. This gives you an answer if the DWF are out of date. We then have to send the out of date files to job server for a new file. 

Could there be a function that said check DWF files to the BOM before release? And if the BOM has files that are out of date or not system generated, send the complete list to job server for update.

Because when I'm trying to research functions I need to be able to open multiple pages/tabs in the help. 


I'd suggest keeping it restricted to Autodeskers for editing of course.

I will like to see, option reset displayname or = filename like  part number.

We have some problems when copy custom part from content center like “structural shapes”

It is showing the old filename in the displayname

Handling inventor properties,

Reset/change Revision Number set to example “-“or “ “

Reset/Change Author and Designer to the user that make the copy

Reset/Change custom properties to “ ”.

Been using VP2014 for several months and first complaint from users was the new "View Tabs" in 2014. I brushed it off hoping that they would get used to it, but they are not.

1) The view is too small to even see any detail. Need to increase the size to fill the entire window. The roll-o-deck feature is neat, but not sure who actually uses it. Isn't that what the history tab is for?

2) The time you save by not loading the full dwf is wasted when they have to hit the image to blow it up anyway. It actually slows the process down because you threw in the human element.

4) If the new viewing is a must, please put in a global option in set up to view like we used to, or the new way, and this would be a per work station setting.

revit project parameter extraction

It would be very usefull when Vault extracts the Revit (*.rvt) parameters used for project information within the title block in a way like Inventor / Autocad.

This would give Revit users more search/organize possibilities.


Best Regards,
