Rollback Revision Increment

Status: Future Consideration
by Valued Contributor jeff.noel on ‎07-25-2012 12:44 PM



If a user accidently makes a change state of a model from Released to Work In Progress, it will increment the revision, and then leave us with no way to go back to the previous revision.  I understand why you would do this, as we shouldn't be going backwards with Revisions, so I don't believe every user should have access to this functionality, but an Administrator should be able to override the Revision if they determined there was a mistake made and we need to go backwards.

When creating and working with lifecycle states, I want to be an environment like this...



Something with boxes and arrows that I can drag around.  I graphical approach like this is easier to work with and provide an easy way to see how files get routed through the entire lifecycle.

Vault CUI Needed

Status: Future Consideration
by *Expert Elite* on ‎06-19-2014 08:06 AM

Just like in AutoCAD, where the CUI can manage any custom toolbars/ribbons/menus, we need a similar function with Vault.

A CUI interface is needed, so we can customize the Vault client how we would like it.


Managed / Customized by the Vault CUI:

  • Ribbons
  • Menus
  • Right-Click Menus
  • Default Workspace Sync Settings
  • Set default 'Saved Searches'
  • Set default 'Shortcuts'

This CUI should be associated to the 'Administration / Vault Settings' area.

I would like to see the ability to make a group an ECO Approver. Creating routing lists would be a lot easier if we could have approval groups set up for our departments that need to approve ECO's.


We would like to use "Unanimous Approval" but it can be tough, because an ECO can get held up if someone is out one day, or on vacation. Approval groups could be set up so that as long as someone from the group approves, the ECO can move on. Vault could still record who did the actual approval, but it wouldn't have to be just one specific person.

I need to see files that have the Lifecycle State OBSOLETE in Vault Explorer, but I don't want to see them when I'm using Place From Vault command in Inventor. It would be very handy to have a toggle for this in the Place From Vault window.

Don't Let the Job Processor Consume an Inventor License

The job processor also pulls an Inventor license when it is processing Inventor files meaning that I can not have it running during business hours. To me there should be a method for it to update DWF files without consuming an Inventor license

Recycle bin

Status: Future Consideration

Instead of permanently deleting files from vault, make a recycle bin type functionality in Vault.


Upon right clicking a folder, we should have the option to undelete the files (with dependents).


Emptying the recycle bin should be an administrative task

When a file is right clicked in the main window, one has the option of clicking "Go to folder" or "Go to working folder". I get this wrong about 50% of the time. Wouldn't "Go to local folder" or "Go to folder in vault" make more sense?

Why is it you can import .xlsx and .csv files in certain Autodesk programs, but in Vault you cannot export out in these formats.

Well, these formats should be incorporated into the available export choices.

See the following thread.
