Command FIND, add option "is not"

Command FIND, add option "is not" (In Vault Basic)


I have to check the Inventor libraries if the PartNumber of the files in the library are not '_'.

We use this so we can easily reorder out Standard Parts to the top of the BOM in Inventor.

But this option is also very good useable to check if the Projectnumber for al the parts in a project is filled in correct.

Delete Versions/revisions

Status: New Idea

We have some drawings with rev c. Now one of our designers changed state of that file and now i have D-revision.


Now I should modify that C-revision because it hasn't gone out yet.


It would be nice feature to be able (as admin) to delete latest version/revision of files in vault.

I have a unique request that I think would benefit many users.  I have a need to specify a criteria be met prior to a state change.  In my example, I need to have a particular property with a value before we can send a file to the next state.  This property is not mandatory until we reach this state, so the compliance flag is not displayed for this. 


The problem we experience occurs when someone forgets to fill in the required value and then tries to submit the file to the next state.  The resulting error message indicates that there is missing information, but is not specific as to the missing or unfulfilled criteria.  It would be very beneficial to have the error dialog indicate the particular criteria that failed.  If the user could see the property missing the value or something similar to direct them, it would be very useful.

Add Variables for Searching

Example, have the option to include [ME] as an option to find checked out docuemnts.

This way I can include this search with our deployment, and every user  will have it automatically and not have to create it.

In the transitions between lifecycle states, by default when several properties criteria are used, they must default fulfilled all at once (AND behaviour).


Vault should have the option to use logic operators (AND, OR, XOR...) between the different properties used.


For example:
Category Name contains "Documents" OR "Technical"....


This feature would be very useful for security and control reasons.

Multi-language properties in Vault

Status: New Idea
by Employee on ‎01-13-2015 10:24 PM



We are collecting inputs from Vault customers and users on the following product requirement. Please provide your inputs and votes. This will help us decide whether to include this a new product feature in future release.


File Properties In Vault:
a. There is no way to create multi-language properties in Vault, The customer have to create extra custom properties for each language. As the customer get more languages in future, the list gets longer. They need to define a property with a dictionary to define properties in many languages. For example, when the user is setting the Description, he wants to set up the dictionary to enter the German term, the Italian term etc.
b. Sometimes csutomers have properties for which they need to enter multiple values. But there are no multiple selection widgets like checkbox. Right now, some customers are using a workaround by using a text field and entering delimiters for multiple values.

"Provide an ability to choose to send email notifications for change orders to few people. Currently, customers don’t use the notifications in change order, as they get lots of emails due to it."

It is useful to have the possibility to create a file link for a specific document revision\version.


For example :

A document could be used on more project folders, so I will use "file link" to duplicate this document.

On a folder PROJECT-01, I need to create a link with the current file revision, for example revision A.

On another new folder PROJECT-02, I need to modify this document (so create a new revision B) and create a link with this new revision B.


For traceability, It should possible to freeze the link state on PROJECT-01 into the revision A (and not updated with the B).

Vault Solidworks Add in

Status: New Idea
by *Expert Elite* on ‎10-31-2014 07:01 AM


Currently the vault add in in SW does not look for SW drawings on chek in assembly.

In Inventor you can but not in SW. 

The parts have drawings but Vault cant search for them. Today companies work with INV and SW togheter 

and when connected to Vault with different functionalities it creates a problem.

I hope someone in Vault Dev will do something with that.
