How to auto login? Auto checkout when open files? Auto checkin when save files?
Thanks very much
Do Le Vu,
Check out :
If you want to remind users to check out a file while opening you can configure to give an warning message under. SolidWorks > EPDM > Options > Check the prompt to check out the file if opened in read-only mode
If every time users save a file after checking it out and modifies it. EPDM creates a version. Hence you can do an auto check in. Imagine an user working on a big assembly keeps saving the file now and then and it keeps creating the versions unneccesarily. So it's not advisable to do an autocheck in.
Automatic Log-in: If you disable this setting as shown in the picture the user may not be asked to log-in. But if there is an inactivity for a very long time it might ask to log-in.
Hello Do Le Vu !
Could you kindly explain why do you need these functionalities ? Any specific reason ?
Check-in a file upon saving ??? It would create 'n' Number of versions.
We use Solidworks Enterprise PDM server to store documents.
Users often forget to check out before open it, or forget check in after save it.
So that i want to Auto check out when the file is opened and auto check in when the fiile is saved.
And i want auto login (if possible).
Thanks very much.
Thank you very much, Raghu

Hi, thanks very much
How can i enable the promt to check out for other program, not Solidworks? Example Word, Excel...
There would be no default add-in for MS-Office,PDF's files. When opened it will be opened as read-only. So one have to RC and say edit before opening as Faur said or check out the file from the explorer and edit.
Check this link out. They have add-in's for Word,Excel and PPT.
Thanks again, Raghu
If you want to check out a file use "Edit" option from windows explorer. It checkout and open the file.
