Auto Numbering supports showing the Code : Description

Status: Implemented
by Employee on ‎06-24-2012 04:51 AM

Auto Numbering scheme supports showing the [Code : Description] in the dropdown but only uses the Code in the Numbering Scheme. This allows the use to see the Description which helps them pick the correct value.

 

Currently the Description inputted during the creation is not visible to the end-user

Agree, great idea, please implement this also for file numbering scheme and in CAD Vault add-ins, just as what you have done for the Item numbering scheme:

When You create numbering scheme and add pre-defined value list there is option to put description in another column.

 

 

And when Inventor or AutoCAD propose file nam there is no visibility of this description. The value its only that We can see.

 

 

 

It wolud be great to see description fields so We can know what value represents (We don't want to remember all value descriptions).

 

This description value can be displayed normally or in context menu when We hover over value.

The Pre-Defined List field allows a description. However that description is only ever referneced when creating/editing that field within the numbering scheme setup. It would make a lot more sense if these descriptions also showed when chosing from this list while creating a new filename.

And once more I forgot to spellcheck before hitting post.

I am in total agreement with you on this request!

 

I do a good number of Vault implementations each year and I am asked repeatedly if the users can be shown the description rather than its associated code. The description means a lot more to a user.

See Case No:12068004

 

It would be great to have the option of displaying both the code and its associated description from a custom numbering schemes pre-defined pull down menu?

Currently I am only able to display the code in the pulldown menu and not its associated description when generating a new number from a scheme.

I see that it is possible if Items are used but we do not use items in our setup.
