What is the setting for the admin to open private state files?  As admin, I can open them (as read only).  I'd like to be able to assign this function to other users so they can open private state files.  The reasoning for this is because we acquired a company and they have files in private state.  Unfortunately, those employees are no longer… (Show more)

I was wondering if there was any function within EPDM stopping you from moving released files within EPDM. I can't seem to move all released files to a different folder but was able to move unreleased documents. Is there maybe just an admin right in EPDM settings I'm missing?

We moved some files around in the vault recently. Now, when we try to open them up, Solidworks opens up an old version of the files. Closer inspection reveals that we have all the old files in their original locations in our vault views as Local Files. If we delete these local files, Solidworks opens the correct version. Is there a way to have… (Show more)

Hi all, We use PDM tasks a lot, and they generate a lot of logs. So much that whenever we try to use a search for "checked out" files it's hard to find actual results without having to sort through and delete task logs.   How are others managing these logs? Is there a simple way to delete old ones after a period of time or turn them off as we… (Show more)

Click to view contentUsing clear local cache in SW PDM standard 2019.... right mouse on "clear local cache" and it clears files (without any feedback).   Is there a more advanced feature like in Workgroup PDM that let you pick files "not in vault" ?        I suppose I could sort by version number in the vault view - like below  (but hoping to see more of a concept… (Show more)
