I think it is crazy that everytime the state is changed within vault, specifically from "Released" to WIP, I have to synchronize the properties. Why aren't the properties automatically syncing when the state is changed. They should be. Changing states should not be a two step process.
If I have an item released and I want to migrate it to my current version of inventor, I have to change the state to Work In Progress, check the file out, save it, check it back in, update the item in item master, and finally re-release the item. Currently my company has about 200,000 items in our item master, so doing this manually is not an option. Can we get a utility that will do all 6 of these steps automatically?

When automatically creating new user accounts, it would be nice to have them set to a default Group such as a "View Only" group. This would virtually eliminate the number of requests to the Vault Administrator needed to set up each user account. (For me at least...)
Would like to see drawing compare added back into Vault. This was part of Design Review several years ago and it allowed you to overlay two .idw's and it would identify the differences. This was removed in about the 2008/2009 release of Vault/Design Review. It was similar to the BOM compare. And...it did work. We often need to compare the .idw's attached to an item from one revision to another. We lost alot when this feature left.
How many times to you put something in the search box only to find that you've previously navigated to the wrong folder? And then when you move to the correct folder, Vault resets the search field and you have to type everything back in again?
This happens to me all the time. Wouldn't it be great if the search box didn't reset itself when we navigate between folders? I think so.
I have seen an example of how the shortcut for the web client can include a windows authentication login to automatically log that person in. It would be useful to have a way to push the credentials of a local vault account through the Web client log in process.
