When batch plotting inside Vualt Client, I would like the option to plot individual Autocad drawings to a single PDF file. Currently, Inventor drawings will do this automatically, since the sheets are a set within a single idw file. With Autocad drawings, however, we often have projects that may contain as many as 36 individual dwg files. Even if these are controlled by a sheet set or an Acad Electrical project, they batch plot from Vault Client as individual pdf files. These, then, have to be manually compiled into a single pdf for transmittal to customer, vendors etc.
The option, (checkbox perhaps) to compile them into a single pdf right in the plot window, would be a tremendous time saver.
When I want to relinquish ownership of a file(s) and uncheck this box, I often don't want to apply it to all the files, but because there is not other method at this point but to go into the vault and regain ownership of the files that you want. In this case I have a factory file that I am checking in certain members and want to release ownership of, but not the parent factory file. I would like to see this option be able to select which files to apply this to.
When I click on a file in the File list it should open the dwf on that click, needing another clikc to open the file is cumbersome. All of the history, uses etc, could be shown on a browser frame to the side or at the bottom. This should at least be an option.
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.
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 Problem is that you don't know if DWF is out of date or system controlled(made by job server).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 This gives you an answer if the DWF are out of date. We then have to send the out of date files to job server for a new file.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 And if the BOM has files that are out of date or not system generated, send the complete list to job server for update.
