I hope that in the future versions of Vault Professional, I can use of the Inventor Revision Table linked with Revision of Items. This option would give a high value to Inventor Revision Table.

I'm as Vault Administrator not happy to be the only person who can purge Items.

I don't see any danger to give such right to users with "Item Editor (level 2)" role.

Please do so.

Otherwise vault administrators all over the world would invent optimal method to purge all Items on a regular basis.

...draft Item revisions block draft file versions to be purged, right?

I've known this issue has existed from about day one in Productstream and now Vault Pro, but
it's time that this security issue is fixed. I feel its a major defect, but they tell me it's "AS DESIGNED".

 

If you are using items, this has the potential to be costly to your organization. It allows users to print an older version of a file which has been revised and it still shows the water mark of "RELEASED". All without any kind of warning.

 

We are dealing with items and when an item has several revisions and you toggle back thru the revisions, the drawings
linked to that revision still have a water mark of released, even though the drawing is an old - revised drawing.

 

The attached video illustrates this disaster waiting to happen.

There has to be a way to prevent the printing of older drawings with "RELEASED" on them. The water mark should say "VOIDED Drawing" or the like when a user toggles the revision level back. Any guidance here on how to
fix this issue?

We have a series of part numbering schemes created over the last couple years.

When viewing the number schemes in the Creation Tool, they are listed in alphabetical order.

However, when actually using the number schemes to create new part numbers, they are listed in order of creation. (See snapshot.)

It would be good to see this list in alphabetical (alphanumeric) order.

 

Note: This same behavior is seen with the ECO routing list.

How many times to you put something in the search box only to find that you've previously navigated to the wrong folder?  And then when you move to the correct folder, Vault resets the search field and you have to type everything back in again?

This happens to me all the time.  Wouldn't it be great if the search box didn't reset itself when we navigate between folders?  I think so.

Currently, so I am told, there is no integration between Item properties and those in File Store on the same object.

 

Example:  A file in File Store is at Revision 0, you assign it to an Item in the Item Master.  In Item Master change the revision (manually or through an ECO or Lifecycle change), and push that revision out to the CAD file (idw or ipt etc).  Make changes to the CAD file, save and check back in to Vault.  The file in File Store is still at Rev 0, though the ITEM is at Rev 1.

 

Linked with this, the Vault Revision Table.... pulls it's Revision value from the File Store value... so if it's not in sync with Item Master... it becomes a useless tool.

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."

Drawing compare

Status: Solution Provided

Would like to see drawing compare added back into Vault. This was part of Design Review several years ago and it allowed you to overlay two .idw's and it would identify the differences. This was removed in about the 2008/2009 release of Vault/Design Review. It was similar to the BOM compare. And...it did work. We often need to compare the .idw's attached to an item from one revision to another. We lost alot when this feature left.

DWF Updating on Item Release

Status: Future Consideration
by *Expert Elite* on ‎06-21-2012 05:49 AM

The ability to have the associated DWFs updated when an Item is moved from In Review to Released.

Preferably using the job processor.

When doing a copy design on a large project, it is very difficult to know what parts need to be copied.  You either have to be very familiar with the project or first go into inventor and manually create a list of parts that need to be in the copy design.

I would like to be able to choose the parts that need to be copied from a graphics window first (where I can see the parts in the context of the assembly), then have a chance to name them.  I know that we get a preview of the part in the copy design (well sometimes) dialog, but that is not always enough to tell the difference in the parts.
