As Vault administrator I found myself constantly moving Inventor files between folder with different security.
Everything works fine except for folders with Configuration factory members (suppose you know that those folders are moved only as a result of move factory-model).
Configuration factory model inherit security of destination folder (as expected) but folder with configuration members keep initial security.
Thus I'm constantly fixing security of those folders manually.
Vault users are most likely desire the same security of member and factory. Please add some more inteligence to the process.
Maybe in Vault Pro or Colaboration this is a function, but in workgroup the ability to roll back to a previous revision is not there. I have had this function in other PDM softwares. This needs to be considered strongly as a much needed enhancement.
A customer of ours has the following request...
Send hyperlink of a vault folder via email option.
Instead of having to send a hyperlink for each file, just allowing one for the folder they reside in would be a simple less intensive process.
Thanks for the consideration.
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.
Can we please be a little more descriptive in the error messages?
I get a message that tells me I cannot move a specific file in the vault from one location to another.
The message reads "File Cannot be moved" looking at the details it says "File could not be moved due to vault error"
Really? Why couldn't it have explained to the detail of saying one of the factory files was checked out causing this file not to be moved. This is just one example. I would like to see all messages be a little more descriptive.
Side note. I would like to see less messages as well. That is more of how the software is written though.
Probably a different idea for a different day.
I would like to be able to select which CAD the Job Processor uses in stead of True View. True View does not handle specific cad object wery well like Civil 3D objects (styles and labels). I could imagine also Map 3D display manager objects, AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP objects.
I need to know when I need to approve an ECO based on my work list. I receive many ECO's and some that I approved then get rejected. When they return to my work list I don't see an indicator that it needs my attention again. Right now, I have to manually open every ECO twice a day to see if the "Approve" icon is lit up. The main problem is that there are multiple groups within my organization, hundreds of people and all of the rejections put these into a constant review cycle. I need a way to sort by, "I'm an approver" + "I need to review". Since all other variables change based on the ECO. A simple fix would be to make the ECO number "bold" in my worklist when it requires my attention. Please help.
i think Autodesk should integrate automatic PDF-Publishing into Vault (2D-PDF) like the DWF-Publishing.
The DWF is more powerful and Autodesk want to spread it with force, but there are some reasons for the PDF format:
- PDF is an ISO-Standard, DWF not.
- You can open DWF only on Windows, there is no DesignReview form MAC or Linux.
- The DWF-Viewer works only on prozessores with SSE2, PDF-Viewer are running everywhere.
- Everybody has installed an PDF-Viewer, DesignReview normaly nobody without Autodesk Products.
My company would like to move to a paperless manufacturing system.
I know that many companies would like to move in this direction and probably have, by using "Workarounds".
I would like the ability to use the following workflow:
1.) Create design using Inventor (Creates .idw).
2.) Check the file into Vault (Creates .dwf).
3.) Shop floor opens .dwf (Using Vault & Design Review).
4.) Shop floor creates Redlines and saves file.
5.) Redline file is "Automatically" saved in Vault.
6.) Designer recieves message "New redline available".
7.) Designer checks out .idw and adds redlines as revisions to the .ipt and the .idw and checks file back into Vault.
8.) Vault creates new .dwf of revised file, while archiving the redlined files.
Can this be done? This would be a perfect integration.
