Autodesk Vault 'Clone Structure' Add-in - Make as permanent feature

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor Brausmith on ‎07-01-2012 10:02 PM

Description

Starting a folder structure for a new project in Vault can be a timely process. From reproducing the folder structure, and in particular having to manually assign permissions to the newly created project structure.

 

Impact

Not having this feature has a significant impact on the process for starting a new project, particularly one which has a somewhat complex folder structure.

Due to this product limitation, it might actually put users/clients off from using Vault in the first place if there is such a time consuming project startup administration process.

 

Severity

Medium-High

 

Solution

Roll the Autodesk Vault 'Clone Structure' Add-in from Autodesk Consulting in as a permanent feature in Vault to aid in speeding up the project startup process.

We use a standard set of folders for every project we do.  It would be really slick if Vault had an option to store a series of folders (including a few files) as a default standard and would allow you to create a new project folder from that set of standard folders (including all of the sub folders and files).

 

I do this now by keeping the standard folder structure in a CAD Management folder on the server and drag it into Vault when a new project is started.  Then a rename on the root folder and done.

 

Would be a nice feature if it was built into the software! :smileyhappy:
