I have multiple vaults on my server and some users have access to multiple vaults. However I would like to be able to set the user to a Document Editor in 1 vault and a Document Consumer in a different vault. Currently the user would have Document Editor in all vaults that they have access to.
I've suggested this on the 2014 beta forums, and have been advised to post it here.
A lot of end users don’t even know the JP exists, the ones that do will sit there waiting for it to do it’s thing but there’s no obvious indication that the JP is even processing their job (yes there is the Job Queue but I’ll get to that). Could you please consider implementing some sort of graphic visual, whether that be a property, field, column, whatever, but something to show a user that the JP is actually processing a job for the file(s) they’re looking at. I appreciate that as with anything, the technicalities of this will be tricky, but it would be very useful to have. As an administrator I can RDP onto the JP box and pause/resume the JP and witness what it’s doing, a user cannot, they won’t know if their job is 15 minutes away from being done, 5 minutes, if the JP has bombed out, and I don’t want them to rely on the job queue either as this is often full of errors and a typical end user won’t be able to make any sense of that job queue.
There should be a relatively simple option in ADMS to truncate data from the vault, or to backup just the configuration.
Doing an implementation at a publicly traded company means going to a multi-stage process (dev, test, UAT, Prod) with multiple vault environments to verify the configuration before go-live. It would be very convenient to be able to either remove all of the files from the vault to provide a clean starting point for a new environment.
Alternately, the option to backup JUST the configuration would be a huge help as well.
When running a Copy Design on a file (say an assembly), if one of its dependants (even if not copied) was used for simulation, the simulation result's files are copied to the temp during the Copy Design.
It sometimes results in an error stating "The specified path, file name, or both are too long", and the Copy Design cannot be done.
Could the simulation files be ignored during Copy Design?
There should be a way to create digital signatures from within Vault that would write directly to the drawing files. Currently if I want a "legal" signature I need to print a hard copy to sign which then becomes the legal copy on file (not the DWG) or I need to publish a PDF and use Verisign which then means the PDF becaomes the legal copy.
It makes sense to me to have all this done directly from Vault (ideally PLM 360 as well).
This is a very important point for regulated industries i.e. FAA, FDA etc.
It would be nice if there was a way to "reset" the ECO number if an ECO is not used. As it is our ECO number must be manually entered to maintain the numerical order. This requires that we keep a physical log of ECO numbers to insure we don't inadvertantly skip or double up on one. This seems like it should be a standard function of Vault Pro. At the least an ECO that is cancled should not allow us to skip to the next number. That number should be unused until the ECO is actually started
