Part comparisons between local and vault

Question asked by Jason Corl on Nov 6, 2008

During the check in process PDM checks if the file on your local system is newer, same, or older than the file that is in the vault.

The problem we are having is that when we have a large assembly we may open a part, check a sketch or something and end up saving the file but not actually change anything. PDMworks thinks we did and wants us to check in the file.

This is extremely annoying when we are checking in an assembly with a ton of parts that SW thinks we changed but in reality we didn't. How do you handle this situation? Are we doing something wrong with managing our vault that we need to change?

Any ideas?

Also when myself and another user try to check in the same assembly, when the dialog box opens, none of the files are selected for me, but for him, all of the newer files are selected...there is no right-click option available for either of us. What is causing this difference?

Thanks in advance for your time.
