When automatically creating new user accounts, it would be nice to have them set to a default Group such as a "View Only" group. This would virtually eliminate the number of requests to the Vault Administrator needed to set up each user account. (For me at least...)
"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."
We need the ability to store all deployable files related to Inventor in the Vault. This includes, but is not limited to, the ability to put the Design Data folder into vault, and enhanced tools to manage Templates, Style and material libraries, and iFeatures within the Vault. Being able to deploy inventor settings XMLs through the project file would be very useful as well.
Basically, we need enterprise level tools to manage inventor configuration.
When using the Change Order process, the document Properties are not mapped to the Change Order Process (ie. Checker, Approver, Date approved, ECN number into Rev Box on Drawing etc) and so do not refresh during document sign off process. This means lots of manual input required by the Users which is open to mistakes. The whole point of a software driven system it to reduce mistakes by doing the manual input for you. Please rectify Autodesk!
Also on a similar theme, why can’t the change order process automatically change the Lifecycle state of the file (i.e Work In Progress, In Review, Released etc). Again, too much manual input required.
Can we please be a little more descriptive in the error messages?
I get a message that tells me I cannot move a specific file in the vault from one location to another.
The message reads "File Cannot be moved" looking at the details it says "File could not be moved due to vault error"
Really? Why couldn't it have explained to the detail of saying one of the factory files was checked out causing this file not to be moved. This is just one example. I would like to see all messages be a little more descriptive.
Side note. I would like to see less messages as well. That is more of how the software is written though.
