Autodesk Vault 2024.2 Highlights

Client Enhancements 

  • Learn about the enhancements made to the Vault Client.
  • Customize Rename Columns.

In the Vault 2024.2 release, we have extended the Rename wizard’s capabilities.  

You can now:  

  • Add property columns in the rename wizard.  
  • Change the order of the columns, the size of the columns, and the alignment of the data in the columns.  
  • Sort columns in ascending or descending order.  
  • Add or remove the default prefix/suffix under the numbering scheme. You can also choose not to use any default prefix/suffix.  
  • Copy/paste values between multiple columns.  

Note: The ability to customize columns has been extended to the Purge, Export and Replace wizards.  

Show/Hide Markup 

Also new in the Vault 2024.2 release, Show (>)/Hide (<) arrow icons are added to the markup extension, allowing you to view visualization content properly when the markup tool is selected. Minimizing the panels associated with markups will enable you to have more screen space. You can also move the markup text toolbar for added ease and convenience. 

DWF and DWFX Support for Shared Views 

We have now added support for publishing DWFs and DWFx files to Shared Views, making collaborating and sharing your designs with others easier. This is already supported in the Vault mobile app.  

Administration Enhancements 

Learn about the new capabilities and enhancements available for administration in the Vault 2024.2 release.  

Client Configuration 

In this release of Vault, we added the capability for administrators to centrally manage and deploy basic configuration settings such as grid view, saved search, and shortcuts on the client machines. These are the default settings configured when users access their system. Users can copy or modify the distributed settings locally to optimize their tasks and improve efficiency.
