In Vault Professional 2013, we could filter Item BOM rows using the column header filter:
In Vault Professional 2015, someone has decided to completely remove this. Why?? This is counter productive and I can't imagine anyone would ask for something useful and harmless to be removed. Please reinstate this functionality ASAP. I know the filter is available for standard system properties, but this is a custom UDP. I'm also aware of the 'Group By' function but this was more convenient and user friendly.
What is it with stuff being removed from the product without notification or reason?! In addition to my previous post where it was apparent column filters had been removed, I've now stumbled across this.
In Vault Professional 2013, within the context of an Item > Where Used tab, you could right click the source Item and Collapse all. Handy if the part has 501 parents.
In Vault Professional 2015, see below the exact same item and the exact same tab, right click on the exact same place and you get this cobbled together tatt... not handy in the slightest if the part has 501 parents, look at the scroll bar and tell me you could be bothered to manually collapse that many parents!!!
This must be an oversight as I don't for a second believe someone is actively removing useful functions from the product on purpose.
We would love to see the worklist color coded by state. Customizing the colors so we could pick what color was assigned to each state would be fantastic. But basically the idea would be to highlight each item in the worklist by state. So for example you red could be assigned to all change orders that have been approved and are needing effectivity to be set and closed.
I appologize for my coloring skills but here is what it might look like.
"I think it would be useful if PS would email users if they have a checked out file in Vault that has been checked out for more than X number of days/weeks etc without any activity (new checkin). I've found some people purposely or accidentally checkout a file and forget about it. I tried having them create a saved search, but it needs to be more of a "in the face" reminder.
It could also be a popup when you login that says something like... "you have X number of files that have been checked out for X number of days, would you like to checkin the files now?" Granted this may be tougher since you will have to use Inventor to do the actual checkin."
This is quite an annoying issue. I've created several Search Folders in Vault, which contain pretty complex search-parameters. Every time we migrate to a newer version of Vault (almost every year) I have to manually 'redesign' these search criteria... FOR EACH WORKSTATION THAT USES VAULT in our company!
It would be a great improvement of Vault Basic to incorporate a tool/function to export/backup AND import the search folders. Can't imagine other users don't think the same.
