Workpace Folder Autosync

Status: Comments Requested
by Cody.Redding on ‎12-13-2014 05:54 PM

Hi all,


We are looking for a way to automatically sync certain folders in Vault to the Local Workspace. 


We are attempting to create templates that live in Vault, but right now there is no way that i can find to automatically push certain folders to local machines.  This forces all users to "Get" the templates folder, every time there is a change to the template, or a new template is added.

Have you tried using the Workspace Sync utility?

Search Folder are great but the ability to group them into sub groups would be better.

What would you be placing into sub-groups?  The folders you want to search or the search results?

Use path as a condition

Can you add the possibilité to use the path of the file for a condition (rules, transition).


This will be very usefull in this case:

Departement A works in $\designs\DepA => all files must fall in a DepA Category

Departement B works in $\designs\DepB => all files must fall in a DepB Category


Thanks in advance

Have you tried using Data Stanadards to see if this will do what you are requesting?

Status change - Apply Button

Make a "Apply" Button in the Status Change Dialog.

For example

I must change the status from "in wok" to "check in" and then from "check in" to "ready to produce"

Is there a reason why your transitions are not configured so that you can't go straight to "ready to produce" from "in work"?

Feature request:

Desire to have the ability to set file access by user profile.

Particularly file download in web client - would like to be able to switch this off as an option for some users to reduce risk of accidental leak of IP from native files being downloaded.

Status: Comments Requested

If these specific users are not able to download the files, what kind of data would they be accessing in the Thin Client?

We have a series of part numbering schemes created over the last couple years.

When viewing the number schemes in the Creation Tool, they are listed in alphabetical order.

However, when actually using the number schemes to create new part numbers, they are listed in order of creation. (See snapshot.)

It would be good to see this list in alphabetical (alphanumeric) order.


Note: This same behavior is seen with the ECO routing list.

Job Processor log more detailed

Status: Comments Requested
by Mentor on ‎10-27-2014 01:21 AM



Can you add more log when a job failed (stack, etc...).


We already try to change JobProcessor.exe.config but it's not enough to understand why a job failed

Status: Comments Requested

Thanks for submitting your idea.

Can you provide some examples you have had a job failed and it wasn't clear in the log?

We use these commands quite often. To save the steps of having to select a file and then have to go to the File menu takes a lot of time. I would love to have these options available when RMB selecting the file itself. It seems like a simple and logical addition.


Below is a photoshopped edit of what I'm asking for....

Thank you for submitting your idea. The challenge we have is balancing this menu with the right command versus overloading the menu with too many commands. Can you give us your opinion on how to best balance this menu?

locked file icon colours

Change the colours of the 2 locked file icons in Vault Workgroup and above. Currently they are grey and beige. On a monitor with high resolution it is very difficult to see the difference between them. See the below picture. Locked and local up to date is fine. BUt maybe locked and not up to date could be yellow or red or some constrasting colour.

Add Alert Notifications To Vault

Status: Comments Requested
by Board Manager on ‎10-17-2012 06:35 AM


There are a lot of automatic processes that run on the Vault server that are critical to daily usage.  If any of these processes fail, administrators need to be notified so that the issue can be addressed ASAP before the system gets into a critical state.



If the processes go unmonitored or errors are not addressed in a timely manner, the Vault system can get into a critical state making it impossible to use until the issues are addressed.  It can also affect users daily work as they may not be able to get files needed to complete their work.






Create an alert feature in Vault that notifies specific users/administrator of potential problems with the Vault processes.  This should be in the form of an email with possibly attaching log files and other important information in the alert.

Samples of things that need to be monitored:

  • File replication
  • SQL replication
  • ADMS Console backup
  • Database and file store size
