I have a unique request that I think would benefit many users.  I have a need to specify a criteria be met prior to a state change.  In my example, I need to have a particular property with a value before we can send a file to the next state.  This property is not mandatory until we reach this state, so the compliance flag is not displayed for this. 


The problem we experience occurs when someone forgets to fill in the required value and then tries to submit the file to the next state.  The resulting error message indicates that there is missing information, but is not specific as to the missing or unfulfilled criteria.  It would be very beneficial to have the error dialog indicate the particular criteria that failed.  If the user could see the property missing the value or something similar to direct them, it would be very useful.

Place LINK / SHORTCUT into Vault

Status: Solution Provided

Add the abililty to place a link or shortcut into the Vault.

It would be helpful to allow the 'link' of large point cloud data to Vault documents, without having the large point cloud data be imported into the Vault.

Add Variables for Searching

Example, have the option to include [ME] as an option to find checked out docuemnts.

This way I can include this search with our deployment, and every user  will have it automatically and not have to create it.

In the transitions between lifecycle states, by default when several properties criteria are used, they must default fulfilled all at once (AND behaviour).


Vault should have the option to use logic operators (AND, OR, XOR...) between the different properties used.


For example:
Category Name contains "Documents" OR "Technical"....


This feature would be very useful for security and control reasons.

Vault Solidworks Add in

Status: New Idea

Currently the vault add in in SW does not look for SW drawings on chek in assembly.

In Inventor you can but not in SW. 

The parts have drawings but Vault cant search for them. Today companies work with INV and SW togheter 

and when connected to Vault with different functionalities it creates a problem.

I hope someone in Vault Dev will do something with that.

Item Classification

Status: New Idea
by Contributor mbrandwijk on ‎10-29-2014 04:46 AM

Any idea when item classification capabilities are coming into vault Pro?


items can be devided in to item categories and product groups. To idenitify an item within the group structure information must be added to the item  with specific characteristics. So each item has a summery of differtentiated characteristics


the characteristics attached to an item are depending on the productgroup code. So for every possible value in the productgroupcode a different set of characteristics is defined.


The characteristics in combination with the Item category and Productgroup code can be used to find a specific item. 




Item Category    =             Axle

Product Group    =            Steering Axle


               Trackwidth                    =             1995 mm

               Springtrack                    =             730 mm

               Load                              =             120 kN

               breakdiameter                =             300 mm



Item Category    =             Hydraulic coupling

Product Group    =             screw coupling


               Pipediam              =             15 mm

               Persure serial        =             L

               Thread                  =             M18x1,5

The following files already exist

Status: New Idea

It would be benefical to users if the vault path was dispayed when they receive the error The following files already exist in the vault and cannot be added due to restrictions. Displaying the vault path would quickly allow users to isolate certain directories in vault.
