Vault Help, where to find it, and other resources

Vault Help, where to find it, and other resources

Autodesk Vault is a robust PDM system with sundry nuances and features.  In this post, I will be showing various links to websites that have a ton of great information.  These links will be useful for seasoned administrators to the first time end user.

First, help docs.  These online help docs from Autodesk are the definitive resource for anything and everything Vault.

Vault 2018 – http://help.autodesk.com/view/VAULT/2018/ENU/

Vault 2017 – http://help.autodesk.com/view/VAULT/2017/ENU/

Vault 2016 – http://help.autodesk.com/view/VAULT/2016/ENU/

Next we have some community sites from Autodesk, where you can get assistance, offer advice, and even contribute ideas that may be implemented in a future release.

Autodesk Vault Forum – http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/vault/ct-p/2004

Autodesk Vault Ideas – https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/vault-ideas/idb-p/2/tab/most-recent

Autodesk Knowledge Network Screencast – https://knowledge.autodesk.com/community/screencasts/VAULTPRODUCTS

This site is like a YouTube channel designed and built by Autodesk, specifically for Autodesk Products.  What makes it different is the recording software will actually tracks which commands you are using, which product is currently being shown, dialog boxes, and files in use.  This gives the viewer a much more meaningful learning experience.  These features are only implemented in Inventor, Revit, and AutoCAD at the time of this post, however, I expect Autodesk to be adding this functionality for Vault as well.

Next we have some blogs from Autodesk.

Cracking the Vault – http://autodesk.com/crackingthevault

Just Ones and Zeros – http://justonesandzeros.typepad.com/

This is a great site for the coders out there, looking to get more out of their Vault experience.

Under the Hood – http://underthehood-autodesk.typepad.com/

This last one is a shared product blog with Fusion Lifecycle (formerly PLM 360).

Now for some more administrator type content; system requirements and readme’s
