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...)
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
