Thin Client 2014- Better Control Options

Status: Accepted
by Product Support on ‎04-24-2014 07:29 AM

A site is preparing to roll out Vault 2014 with the usage of the Thin Client, however this site current does not use Item Masters. Their Question which became a great idea was:


The possibility to “deactivate” (hide on a global level) the “Item Master” buttons in the Thin Client regardless of what permissions are given to the user; which could then be “activated” at a later date when Item Masters are used.


This would could help for sites that do not use this option in vault and would reduce the questions from end users on why how and what.

Download blocking

Wish for new role or permission.

If Just can see all file list and preview but blocked downloading files.

Or if  I can control to block donwloading, it will be good.

for example, some groups in workflow need to be allowed to see all file trees and preview but download of design files should be blocked.


How can I set this?

Add a "Display All" button to the page display

Status: Accepted
by Active Contributor Gene.R on ‎09-25-2013 07:16 AM

In the bottom right of the window you have a more button for showing the next page of objects, and you have to click several times depending on what the threshold is set to on ADMS,  I wish for a "Show All" button so the clients can quickly see everything in a folder. I would like this on Change orders, Items, and Folders.

When using the Change Order process, the document Properties are not mapped to the Change Order Process (ie. Checker, Approver, Date approved, ECN number into Rev Box on Drawing etc) and so do not refresh during document sign off process.  This means lots of manual input required by the Users which is open to mistakes.  The whole point of a software driven system it to reduce mistakes by doing the manual input for you.  Please rectify Autodesk! 


Also on a similar theme, why can’t the change order process automatically change the Lifecycle state of the file (i.e Work In Progress, In Review, Released etc).  Again, too much manual input required.

At my point, it miss the ability to go from the software file directly to the same file in the vault explorer.


It would be perfect to be able to right click in the navigator/explorator of the software where we are working right now to directly have the vault explorer open and the same file selected. Or, at least, visible.


You can actually open a file from vault but not the other way.

Send hyperlink of a folder via email

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor jdow on ‎05-08-2013 07:41 AM

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.

Files names in numerical order

Status: Accepted
by rfletcher on ‎09-27-2013 03:11 PM

Please fix the way vault reads the file name. I have a list of equipment BA12-1 thru BA12-13 and the order of the folders in vault look like this.
















I've had issues in the past where a user goes to create a new brace and names his new model BA12-10 not realizing that it's already been created. Then he has to go back and rename all of his file and relink them manually.

Starting a folder structure for a new project in Vault can be a timely process. From reproducing the folder structure, and in particular having to manually assign permissions to the newly created project structure.



Not having this feature has a significant impact on the process for starting a new project, particularly one which has a somewhat complex folder structure.

Due to this product limitation, it might actually put users/clients off from using Vault in the first place if there is such a time consuming project startup administration process.






Roll the Autodesk Vault 'Clone Structure' Add-in from Autodesk Consulting in as a permanent feature in Vault to aid in speeding up the project startup process.

Web Based ADMS

It would be great to have a web based ADMS console. This would help companies where ITdoesnt let anyone have remote access to servers.

If we have a file with security based on Groups you will encounter a problem:


SALES can only see RELEASED

ENGINEERING can see Everything


When the file in REV.A and Released State is send to Work in Progress, the people from SALES does not see the file any more.

They should have the ability to see the Released File, while Engineering is working on an improvement or modification
