Multiple BOM Views

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor nicgus on ‎10-30-2014 01:56 AM

We need to have the ability to Filter a Bom view in the vault ITEM Master depending on BOM Properties. To show for example, Engineering BOM, Purchase BOM, Spare Part BOM etc.

What is it with stuff being removed from the product without notification or reason?!  In addition to my previous post where it was apparent column filters had been removed, I've now stumbled across this.  


In Vault Professional 2013, within the context of an Item > Where Used tab, you could right click the source Item and Collapse all.  Handy if the part has 501 parents.





In Vault Professional 2015, see below the exact same item and the exact same tab, right click on the exact same place and you get this cobbled together tatt... not handy in the slightest if the part has 501 parents, look at the scroll bar and tell me you could be bothered to manually collapse that many parents!!!





This must be an oversight as I don't for a second believe someone is actively removing useful functions from the product on purpose.

I'd like this put back into the product, please.

In Vault Professional 2013, we could filter Item BOM rows using the column header filter:

In Vault Professional 2015, someone has decided to completely remove this.  Why?? This is counter productive and I can't imagine anyone would ask for something useful and harmless to be removed.  Please reinstate this functionality ASAP.  I know the filter is available for standard system properties, but this is a custom UDP.  I'm also aware of the 'Group By' function but this was more convenient and user friendly.

New Web Client: Download All Files

I don't think this functionality is part of the new web client.

We need the ability to download a drawing file, and all 'children' or reference files associated to the parent file.

Why would you be doing this through the web client and not the thick client or the design application?

Send To option with associated files of items

Status: Accepted

With a file you can drag-and-drop onto your desktop or into an email making it extremely easy to send PDF's and other type files to someone else. However with the associated files of an item no such option exists. You need to "go to folder" and then drag it into the email.


I'm proposing either opening up the new Item modeless dialog to allow me to drag-and-drop files onto my desktop or into my email or adding a "send to" type feature where I could right-click the associated file and send it to an email

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?

We strongly protest Autodesk’s move to give access to web users to see and accidentally download and use obsolete drawings as it would cause major issues and conflicts.


We want a way to turn this feature on and off

Status: Accepted
Are you referring to old released revisions of the drawing in an Item?

Sometimes user needs to purge one particular version of Item.

Instead command available only to administarator and harms all the history.

This causes situation like this -

Please make command available for users and add some options to choose between (at least user should have ability to brawse what he deletes before he will accept the action).

Better Engineering Change Order Dialog

Status: Accepted
by hans_hydrac on ‎05-13-2014 11:51 PM

-Make Detaildescription (1) higher and Properties (2) lower.


Now when i change the height of the window, the height from the Propertiesfield (2) is also changed.

It would be better if the height of the Detaildescription (1) is changed and not the Propertiesfield (2).

When Installing Vault Server it'd be nice to have the prechecks ran before the Serial and configuration page


Things such as the IIS, ASPX, Firewall prechecks etc


The SQL Checks would need to stay where they are.
