Disable Automatic Check-In

I would like to have my vault set up so users can save files within the vault folder structure (keep files local), but not have to worry about keeping track of files before they are complete with their work.  I don't need to keep every prototype file a user creates in the vault. I only care about them until the user feels they are ready. I would like everything to stay out of the vault, until the manually adds whatever file they are working on.  I've got it set up so that when files are saved to a folder in the vault, it is not added, but if I drag and drop a file, they are automatically added.  Is this just how PDM functions?  Is there a way to disable automatically adding files to the vault?


For the record, in the Administration tool, I have the first text box in "Users>Settings>Adding Files" blank, which is the extensions for files PDM should try to add, along with the second box, which is extensions it should never try to add, set to "*sldprt, *sldasm, *slddrw".
