Vault must check if the file is locked or not before asking to check out.
If the file is locked => don't ask, just open-it read only.
If the file is not locked => ask if you want to check out.
Thanks in advance.
Not sure if this is a Vault thing or the application that is used to open the file. I know if a .dwg is opened from Vault Explorer that is not checked out, once Autocad gets control, it will prompt "xyz.dwg is currently in use or is read-only. Would you like to open the file read-only?". Only way to avoid this is to check-out the file in VE before its opened.
The checkout prompt is a vault thing. The Read Only prompt is a very annoying AutoCAD thing.
If I can't check it out, don't ask me to check it out. (This is for another ideastation) If the file is read only, don't let me modify it... also, don't consider zoom or pan a modification.
If you are admin, you are allowed to check out Released files. In this case Vault also should recognize who is admin and who is not admin....
If it is true that an Admin can check out released files then that should be changed!
Released is Released and should protect that file until it's Lifecycle State is changed by an Admin within Vault Explorer.
An Admin inadvertently opening a released file, checking it out by accident, and changing it's Lifecycle State is not a good work flow.
Depending on your Lifecycle definitions this could also cause an unwanted rev bump on the file which at this point there is not recovery from!
