Autodesk Vault 2018.2 Update - Release Notes:
Vault 2018.2 Update continues the focus on improving quality and more efficient workflows. The Job Processor enhancements make it easier for administrators to manage and display more information on the jobs in the queue. Community ideas have been implemented addressing requests that help users in day to day workflows inside of Vault.
- Job Processor Enhancements
Starting with Vault 2018.2, the Job Processor no longer uses a full version of Inventor to process jobs. Instead, it uses Inventor Server, a headless version of Inventor, to process jobs. The use of Inventor Server removes the need to purchase and use an additional Inventor license and removes the need to install a full version of Inventor along with the Vault Client. The enhancements includes improved error handling and messages as well as faster processing of Jobs.
- The Job Queue Interface
The Job Queue dialog has also been enhanced with the Vault 2018.2 Update. The dialog is now modeless which gives the administrator the ability to open the queue and minimize the dialog while continuing to work with the Vault client. In the dialog, you can customize the grid and add more user-defined properties. Right-click on any job to see the new option, Go To Folder, which when clicked takes you to the file associated with the job.
- Customer Requested Improvements
The Vault team continues to listen to the voice of the customer through the Ideas Forum, the Beta forum, and webinars to understand the challenges users face using Vault. The voices influenced the following productivity enhancements with the Vault 2018.2 Update.
- File Sort Enhancements
