Improved attachments to files and items

Status: Under Review

Currently it takes 8-9 clicks to find and attach a  file to another file, like pdf to idw.

Currently it takes 9-10 clicks to find and attach a  file to an item, like pdf to item.

multiply this by 50 files and we have a few hours of work ahead of us


for ITEMS, I would like the option to automatically add any existing attachments from the ipt, iam, or idw upon item assignment.


For FILES & ITEMS I would like an "add attachments" command that opens to the find dialog box. 

the command should also allow saved searches with filters & prompts like "filename contains" or "checked in by"


also, Both have different command locations. Items attachments is located in the right click menu, files have a paperclip located in the toolbar. They should be consistent in both the toolbar and right click menu.

Autodesk spent a lot of time making their graphics software work to minimize mouse and hand movements. Now they need to spend some time with Vault in this fashion.


1. Why can I double click to access some commands and not others?

2. There is a lot of help Topics and Help Content, however we proficient users can't find what we need.

We should have the ability to create our own help files, or at least be able to path to more than one location in the options dialog box.

3. Bring some of your CAD graphics personnel over to Vault. The interface is rather boring. Remember, the person using Vault during the day is the one playing Call of Duty at night. Some of these people may be playing Angry Birds......
