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.
It would be benefical to users if the vault path was dispayed when they receive the error The following files already exist in the vault and cannot be added due to restrictions. Displaying the vault path would quickly allow users to isolate certain directories in vault.
Any idea when item classification capabilities are coming into vault Pro?
items can be devided in to item categories and product groups. To idenitify an item within the group structure information must be added to the item with specific characteristics. So each item has a summery of differtentiated characteristics
the characteristics attached to an item are depending on the productgroup code. So for every possible value in the productgroupcode a different set of characteristics is defined.
The characteristics in combination with the Item category and Productgroup code can be used to find a specific item.
I understand this issue is already with the product dev team, but as it still hasn't happened and made it through to RTM software, I think it should be formally logged here.
I've had to instruct and be quite strict on users in that they're under no circumstances allowed to open any CAD drawing/file/model directly from Vault. So no right clicking on files in Vault and using 'Open'. Why?
Two reasons. The first was that the files opened using Released Bias settings. That was resolved in Vault 2015, but not quite enough to make it usable.
Second reason is that properties are not synchronised during the open, so title blocks & iProperties don't update during the open. It can be manually updated after the open but I have too many users to expect this to always be done.
Please offer the property sync on Open through Vault. This happens when opening via the CAD client, need it when opening from Vault.
