I believe Vault should allow a user somehow to be able to move files from different folders into a similar folder all at once. It would be convenient to conduct a search and be able to move all the related files into a folder of choice. Right now Vault has a restriction where you can only move files that are in the same folder. This might be a difficult request for Vault to accomplish, but I think would be well worth it. Please consider.
When a file is right clicked in the main window, one has the option of clicking "Go to folder" or "Go to working folder". I get this wrong about 50% of the time. Wouldn't "Go to local folder" or "Go to folder in vault" make more sense?
Please fix the way vault reads the file name. I have a list of equipment BA12-1 thru BA12-13 and the order of the folders in vault look like this.
I've had issues in the past where a user goes to create a new brace and names his new model BA12-10 not realizing that it's already been created. Then he has to go back and rename all of his file and relink them manually.
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".
When an engineer creates a markup of a visualization inside of a Change Order, they sometimes need to exit the ECO in process, to look at other information somewhere within Vault... another drawing for example. So they save the Markup, save and exit the ECO without submitting it yet.... and go about whatever they needed to do. Then when they are ready, they go back into editing the change order. however, Vault will not allow them to re-open the Markup they had saved and continue editing.... it forces them to save their new changes, along with whatever markups they had already done, as a new markup file. There have been instances where I have gotten 5 markup dwf's containing essentially the same information, built on with each successive markup.
It would be preferable if they could simply reopen, add some markups and save the same dwf... so all markups end up in one file. The current method is cluttered, messy and begging for something to get missed.
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 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.
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.
