We use the per Item link properties on change orders for change descriptions of each item. Please allow the use of carriage return/linefeeds. We frequently have many details to enter and currently we have to use semicolons or similar to delineate changes. The detailed description allows multiline, how about text UDPs.
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?
I know I can go through the process of starting Vault Plot, adding/browsing for the IAM file and hitting Open and the Plot Manager gathers all of the child part/assy files (including the source assy file) and can plot them. I just find the process tedious and longer than it needs to be. I think you should be able to find an IAM file in the client and hit PLOT command and it then gathers all the child IDW file sand plots them. Running the plot of the selected IAM file goes through the process of discovering the child part/assy files and shows the source assy file in the Plot Manager window without any IDWS. But this is really useless because the output may not be as shown in the thumbnail image, and really it's of no other use to me. But the IDW's of the assy and it's children are.
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....
This is quite an annoying issue. I've created several Search Folders in Vault, which contain pretty complex search-parameters. Every time we migrate to a newer version of Vault (almost every year) I have to manually 'redesign' these search criteria... FOR EACH WORKSTATION THAT USES VAULT in our company!
It would be a great improvement of Vault Basic to incorporate a tool/function to export/backup AND import the search folders. Can't imagine other users don't think the same.
