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.

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?

Backup or Exporting My Search Folders

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor miechh on ‎04-17-2014 02:46 AM

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.

Vault add-in for Inventor

Have the Vault panel bar as a separate dockable window like the iLogic browser. So that it is possible to view both the model and vault panel bars at the same time.

 

Also Auto-refresh the Vault status in the panel bar.

 

This will stop a lot of user errors on usingf the Vault, when they complain of overwriting models etc.

 

Users are under pressure to "get the job out", many times they don't even look at the Vault panel bar!

 

If it is easier to see the vault status and it is refreshed automatically, it will make the designers job a lot easier.

Link numbering schene to categories

Status: New Idea
by gabriele.bonacini on ‎05-12-2014 06:00 AM

At the moment we can link at the categories only lifecicles, properties and revision scheme.

I think it may be usefull to select also the numbering scheme.

 

thanks

Reoder files in rename dialog

Status: New Idea
by Contributor j.weber on ‎06-16-2014 05:05 AM

Often i rename an assembly with part. But often the assembly is not on the first position in the rename dialog.

When I want that the assembly have the first number, for example 001.xxx and the parts following numbers for example 002.xxx ..... than I must rename in two steps.

First step rename the assembyl and in the second step the parts.

I would be nice to have a reorder butte to move file up or down in the list

It could be great to have a way to see the pdf before having to download it on the Thin Client.

Like a preview for the pdf.

Improved Vault Users & Groups Managment

Status: Accepted
by Andrew1307 on ‎05-20-2014 09:38 AM

As it currently stands it is not possible to delete users and groups within Autodesk Vault. 

 

This is a problem. I understand Autodesk's stance on that the users need to be retained for historical reasons, however the management side of things needs to be improved. 

 

For example I created a group and users that were never used. Why can't I delete them? Objects that were never used should be allowed to be deleted. Also as the database grows and users are hired and terminated, the list will grow to an unmanageable mess.

 

What has happened to me is that I am in the middle of implementing Vault for my company. When I first set it up I created users. However, since then we have switched to a Domain and have now imported the Domain users and groups to use. Now I have groups and users that have never been used that I have no way of deleting or using for anything else. 

 

I have found blogs and forum posts suggesting that users be diabled and renamed so that they are sorted appropriately. This is a hack solution at best and not a real solution to the problem. 

 

As I see it two things need to happen:

 

1. Unused users and groups need to be allowed to be deleted. 

2. There needs to be additional options and sorting methods for used users and groups that are no longer active. ie. Once they are disabled they are moved to a different list and only retained for historical purposes.

Can you provide some examples of other software applications that you would consider having a really good user management interface?

Allow Change Order Tabs to be Rearranged

Status: New Idea
by dcoulam3 on ‎06-13-2014 04:30 PM

Some workflows need to set routing right at the beginning.  The ability to rearrange the tabs would be awesome.

Why is it you can import .xlsx and .csv files in certain Autodesk programs, but in Vault you cannot export out in these formats.

Well, these formats should be incorporated into the available export choices.

See the following thread.
