Hello, it's probably possible using API to get latest on your current folder on log in.
In terms of settings, for any group or user, there is a setting called "Cache Options" which allows you to clear the cache upon log out, and refresh the cache upon log in for any selected folder (and subfolders) in the vault.
Thanks for the response.
The cache option does not approach as updates a set of subfolders if you come into a root folder (if the local cache was cleaned). And it takes a lot of time.
Interests fast up-dating only of the current active folder (without subfolders - for fast viewing).
And updating of files not SolidWorks on not SolidWorks clients.
I think for that you would need API.
I don't think this is possible since the API doesn't have any hooks to know when a user has "browsed" into a folder. You would need a get operation, move, copy, add, data card update, delete, state change, rename, check out/in, menu, etc. command to tell PDM when to do the cache operation.
