I am looking to stop users from creating files with a certain prefix, is there a way to stop checking files in with a rule to check the filename first?
I don't know how many categories you have:
You could add in a condition where the file path does not equal the prefix !=%\bad_prefix% into each category. That way it won't allow the file to go into a workflow.
Do you plan to implement this within a PDM enviroment or regular SW files?
Within the PDM environment. I have a copy happy user using his initials as a prefix and I want to stop it.
You stole it from the tip of my tongue. Exactly what i was going to suggest! You get a like for stealing!! hahahaha
Just copy it and put your initials on the front....
We currently only have 2 so that's entirely possible to do. I will give it a shot, thanks for the help!!
Worked perfectly and doesn't blow the file already in the vault. Thanks again for the help!
FYI there is another option. In the User Settings, enter the naming patterns you want to exclude.
Thank you, I will have to try that one as well.
