We are doing some initial testing with Enterprise before we
go live through the whole company. We had planned on using just a
sequential serial number as the filename. However, as far as I can
tell this makes the Contains, Where Used and Check-In/Out screens
useless. There are a few columns available but I would like to be
able to have the description on that screen. Has anybody found a
clever work around or a fix to this problem? Has anybody else used
serial numbers as filenames and what have you done about this?
We use automatically generated serial numbers as filenames.
It's true, you can't see the description.
In the bill of materials and the search, you can add columns
(administration tool, columns), but in the other screens you can't,
as far as I know. In the vault, you can add columns too.
It works for us, but would be better when you can add columns
wherever you want.
