Recover Drawing with Vault

Would like to impliment a recover using the Vault system storage.


Add a button to support Opening the AutoCAD file and recover the drawing.

When copying a design with a prefix or suffix you have to individually then delete the existing prefix or suffix to then apply the new one this is simply painstaking. The prefix suffix should have a replace function so you can enter the old then enter the new one done.

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...)

If you are using Active Directory groups and users, this is already done. A new user that is in a domain group that has already been added to Vault will get an automatically created vault user account with the appropriate group and permissions.

Enhanced Open from Vault Dialog

Status: Solution Provided

Dear All,

we're working with strict File numbering in Vault, this means, that Folder or filenames do not have any

description content. It'll ease the use of Vault if there would be a property grid within the dialog where the

User can select what additional properties should be displayed.

This would enable us to select files from Vault much more easier (its very easy in all Vault grids because they show us the desired property values)

Current Dialog


And this'll be the enhanced one

This is available in Vault/Inventor 2014.

There is an Application. -Delete Local files- and introduced by an third party


This is working very fine, but I miss one option.


Delete Local file with the option to delete its direct parents file and its children.

Hi There, This comment seems to relate to the "delete local copy" app created by PrismaTech - I have forwarded on your request. Note that you can also post comments directly on the Appstore:

Add Lifecycle State to Drawing

Status: Solution Provided
by david.rust on ‎11-12-2013 08:34 AM

It would be really useful if you could map the Vault Lifecycle state to the Drawing.  This would be useful as a visual ‘stamp’ whether a Drawing has been released or not.

Been using VP2014 for several months and first complaint from users was the new "View Tabs" in 2014. I brushed it off hoping that they would get used to it, but they are not.

1) The view is too small to even see any detail. Need to increase the size to fill the entire window. The roll-o-deck feature is neat, but not sure who actually uses it. Isn't that what the history tab is for?

2) The time you save by not loading the full dwf is wasted when they have to hit the image to blow it up anyway. It actually slows the process down because you threw in the human element.

4) If the new viewing is a must, please put in a global option in set up to view like we used to, or the new way, and this would be a per work station setting.

Make Synchronize Properties Built in

Status: Solution Provided
by *Expert Elite* on ‎09-13-2013 11:30 AM

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.

Add method to Show/Hide option/filter for Vault file status icons in Inventor Model Browser

Why do you want to hide the status icons?

I would like to see an "Include related documentation" button added to the file operation dialog boxes (e.g. Get/Checkout, Revise, Change State, Change Category, etc)


I have to set this option differently depending on what I am doing and it would be a time and click-saver to have this button exposed in the dialog instead of buried in the settings
