As a company we want to have "Auto-Select First Duplicate" item checked as a default. Please make this a global Vault Item setting vs a client side setting. We have new users all the time and this setting seems to get overlooked a lot which in turn generates a bunch of random item numbers. It would be best to control it globally.
With the new updated Thin(web) client using the magnifying glass I can easily see both the thumbnail preview and the DWF Visualization file. However this window is fixed in size and too small making it difficult to properly view the DWF file. I know I can right-click and "Open with DWF Application" but I shouldn't have to.
This window should be changed to that... .
I can resize the Window (and it remembers my size)
have this window open much larger
provide a maximize button that makes the window full screen
Our IS department rolled out Microsoft Office 2013 this past week without saying a word to anyone. I understand that Vault Professional 2013 (our current version) and 2014 (the latest) does not support Office 2013. With more and more people using Vault, there needs to be Word and Excel integration updates and patches so that Vault customers can use the software to its full potential.
When I make a copy design of a simple assembly (composed of 2 parts and one drawing), even if I set the parameters to those files only, it takes about 5 min because Vault downloads on my computer all the files (~700) needed for the mega assembly where my simple assembly goes.
Couldn't that be simpler and faster?
I have been told by my local Autodesk support that "Inventorneeds allthefilesto be able to correctthe wholewithout compromising otherlinks"
I still don't understand why, because it works very well when I make a simple copy-paste in Windows, and it's very quick!
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.
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.
When exporting the BoM table from Vault Pro, there is no way of showing the BoM level indicator (which it does in Inventor). This is really annoying as the whole purpose of exporting the BoM is to then import into another system, such as SAP or perhaps a Spreadsheet. Without the BoM level indicator this is really difficult (actually impossible).
The other way is to use the Export Items tool (right click in the BoM tab), however all the Items must be set to ‘released’ for this to work. Sometimes I want to export for progress reporting, and all the Items are not yet released. Please add an option which allows us to export the Items at any Lifecycle stage. Currently the Software is far too restrictive for users in the real world.
