Check in comments should be mandatory or at least an option that can be selected to require them. RIght now you can check files in without comments. This normally wouldnt be an issue unless you are utilizing Vault check in options for auto check in. If you use auto check in and configure check in frquencey to never prompt it wont. If comments were mandatory you can utilize the same feature click on close or check in and receive a pop up to enter a check in comment to proceed.
I'd like to see an addition to the Vault/File Status tab for a shortcut method to CHECK OUT INCLUDING ALL CHILDREN. Many times a day a have to go through the process of Vault/File Status/Options/Check Out Dialog/Settings/Include children and then the same again to turn the setting off.
Custom objects can have as their contents, a link to a file, but the file does not show a link back to a custom object. It would be valuable to create a two-directional link between a file and a custom object, so that we can see both what files have been associated with a custom obect and at the file level, what custom objects have been associated to that file. As an example, one client would like to create a custom object for each of their outside contractors. When a contractor is sent a file for modification, we would like to create a link between that file and the contractor. Now, we can go to the contractor and see what files they control, but we cannot go to a file and see how many contractors have received that file. This would be valuable to know.
