Use thePermissions per Foldertab of theFolder Permissionspage to give group members permissions to specific folders. You can also use theAssigned Folder Permissionstab to view and modify folder permissions. I read the help file and am confusing - what's the diff. ?

Some of our parts contain multiple configurations which have different BOM description (e.g. 10100001____part_widget) The BOM description is usually the configuration name, but can sometimes be user set, or can be document name

Sync network folder with vault Over the past few years we've migrated our CAD/engineering data to Solidworks and in particular PDM. We're at a point now where we are fairly well organised with our data and are confident that data is staying correct, unmodified and properly backed up.

I am using Workgroup PDM from 2013 and Their are some files that I cannot rename. I can rename most of my files but sometimes I will get an error message that says "Could not rename document". Anyways this will be a big problem as manangement wants me to basically rename all my drawings to exactly match the names they have in their software. Does anyone know a way around this or why it won't let me rename them?

Whenever I boot this machine from a cold boot and attempt to open vault, I never get the login box. I then right-click the "blueberry" and select "login". I then login but nothing, just a spinning circle. I then go to task manager and windows explorer says not responding.

I have created workflow with major and minor revisions. So I start at A-01. If the change means that the parts are still interchangeable then I can go to A-02 and our guys can just order the new issue next time they buy.

Can Multiple versions of Solidworks (2015-2018) work with a 2018 PDM Pro vault? We just upgraded to 2018 sp2 but have a few older projects that need to stay in older versions of Solidworks to be able to share data with customers. I'd prefer to keep these older projects in the vault.

I've noticed that the Rev table data fields don't provide access to the "Link to Property" function when selected, and I was wondering if anyone knows a trick for getting that information (Rev Description, Date, Approved) to show up as a Custom Property?

We're doing a start up and got our entrepreneur licenses and everything in order. Being familiar with EPDM from my day job, I know that it will be a big plus (actually a necessity) for us as the models and product documentation is now starting to pile up. Also we need a proper workflow, revisioning etc. However, the solutions I have heard of are either expensive or too time consuming (VAR or own server solution).
