Currently the check on Released children, links, contained folders etc. when you do a Lifecycle transition to a released state does not include the attached files. So you can have a Word or Excel file, attached to a design file, that are still being reviewed or modified without blocking the release of the design file. The system works OK for Inventor and AutoCAD links (dependencies) but not for attachments.
Once a file\folder is replicated from one site to another, the challenge is to unreplicate.
Currently there appears to be 2 options to unreplicate a file.
1) In the ADMS Console, edit the "Replicated Folder" and untick the folder that you want to unreplicate, then delete the file(s) from the vault, re-add it to the "unreplicated" folder. This will prevent the file from being replicated in future
2) Disable the Vault on the site, delete the local filestore, Enable it. This can be dangerous if the file is not present on at least one other site. Its OK if you know all files are replicated to at least one site.
The wish is to untick a folder in the "Replicated Folder" dialogue for that site and for the ADMS Console to check to see if that file appears on another site before allowing the Admin to unreplicate the folder. Once the check is completed, the files in the selected folder are removed from that sites filestore.
If you think this would be a useful enhancement, add a comment to this thread...
I would love to place my block library into Vault, and then be able to have the tool pallets be able to browse to it. Right now in the options it appears that you cannot browse into the Vault. Future improvement? KNow any work arounds?
Second, I would love to be able to again, in AutoCAD options, browse into the Vault for the Drawing templates and the title block.Vault can read into a title block and get all the information, but it the block were to change, there is no easy way to point to it. I would love to be able to just browse into Vault thru the AutoCAD options dialog.
Currently there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do it.
