We use these commands quite often. To save the steps of having to select a file and then have to go to the File menu takes a lot of time. I would love to have these options available when RMB selecting the file itself. It seems like a simple and logical addition.

 

Below is a photoshopped edit of what I'm asking for....

Thank you for submitting your idea. The challenge we have is balancing this menu with the right command versus overloading the menu with too many commands. Can you give us your opinion on how to best balance this menu?

Copy Design: Reset File State & Revision

Status: New Idea
by ted.roesch on ‎05-29-2014 09:22 AM
We have over 35 people using Vault and creating shortcuts that make messes. We can't reuse certain files because they are Released and perhaps at Revision H. Vault needs to add the ability to clear out a copied file's State and Revision to an initial design designation.

The Vault search text box displays "Search Projects" or "Search Vault Explorer ($)" - often when clicking in the search text box the default text is not cleared and what ever is typed is added to the default text.  The result is that the search is not done correctly.

 

This behaviour is shown in the attached screen shot.

 

According to Autodesk Customer Support this behaviour has existed for several releases of the Vault.

 

I would like the search box default text to clear when clicking in the box to enter data.

I would love it if you could just double click a Change Order and it give you the same options and capabilities as when you RMB and select Edit on a Change Order. It takes less time to double click than it does to right click and then scroll over in a menu. This would save a lot of time (and confusion to new Vault users) because right now if someone wants to add a record to a Change Order they've already created they have to remember to RMB and Edit. Why can't we have the same features just by double clicking it? This would also allow you to get rid of the "View and Respond" redundancy that further makes thing more confusing for Vault users.

 

Work smarter not harder I say.

When an design is copied any ipart links to parents are broke. It would be nice if this was fixed to allow us to copy a design and not have the links of iparts break.

When I make a copy design of a simple assembly (composed of 2 parts and one drawing), even if I set the parameters to those files only, it takes about 5 min because Vault downloads on my computer all the files (~700) needed for the mega assembly where my simple assembly goes.

 

Couldn't that be simpler and faster?

 

I have been told by my local Autodesk support that "Inventor needs all the files to be able to correct the whole without compromising other links"

 

I still don't understand why, because it works very well when I make a simple copy-paste in Windows, and it's very quick!

Ability to Copy Design Previous Revisions

Status: Accepted
by *Expert Elite* on ‎06-06-2013 01:06 PM

We have a situation where we have an assembly that we need to make a copy design of an old revision of.

Without jumping through a ton of hoops this would make a nice enhancement for this software.

A customer who must plan for disaster recovery scenarios would like the ability to restore the primary Vault Database and Filestore from a replicated Database and Filestore. If it is not possible to do this now might the capability be added in a future release?

i think that there is an opportunity to improve the functionality of "manage ownership" tools, when in a replicated environment.

 

for example, i am in the process of deleting a dwf file that is associated / linked to an inventor file. i see that during the delete process, that i cannot complete the task because of error (something like)  "cannot complete task ownership is not assigned to your workgroup".

 

now, we stop what we were doing, navigate to the file location (if you are not working in the folder eg working from a search result folder). take ownership of the file, or in my case, the folder that the file resides in. then navigate back to the original task (run an advanced search for particular file and resume the delete process.

 

idea: allow "manage ownership" functionality from within the context of the original scenario. eg, i see the task "cannot be completed due to vaulting restrictions / ownership is not currently assigned to your workgroup" ... so, let the user choose "attempt to take ownership of file or parent folder" at the time while they are in the process of another task.

 

note that part of this functionality could also be applied to another area of vault; eg whether in a "Search Results" page, or in view "Job Queue" display, allow multiple file selection to be part of a similar "manage ownership" functionality, and allow the functionality to be extended to manage the parent folder(s) of the files that are currently selected.

 

i think that if some consideration is given to this then with some development we could achieve a practical and improved result.

 

(please note that this is written with reference to vault collaboration 2012. i cannot say whether these things are already available in 2014)

Hi Mark, Thank you for submitting this idea. We have already improved ownership management starting in 2013 which may address this request. I am going to switch this request to Solution Provided. After you upgrade and have a chance to see the improvements, let us know if it still doesn't address your requests. Thanks.
