One of the disappointments I had when I started using our EPDM installation was that the Windows Search feature seems to be disabled (or not enabled) for searching inside a vault.
I and many others here had developed the habit of finding files in folders by typing the part number into the search field at the upper right of the Windows 7 Explorer window. This was a very quick and easy way to isolate the specific file we wanted, and by leaving off the last number it would list all the files in a ten-file range, etc. A very handy feature indeed which seems to be completely non-functional within the vault.
This fact leaves us to find a file within a vault folder by tediously scrolling up and down until it appears in the visible screen. Sorting by columns can help in some cases but if we're just looking for a specific file name (part number), scrolling seems to be the only way. Using an EPDM search is not really a viable option as it generally takes at least 5 seconds to open the search window, which is no savings in time.
Anyway, complaining aside, if there's a way that I'm not aware of that I can get the Windows search feature to work inside the vault I would greatly appreciate a heads-up. It would save a great deal of time and tedious, carpal-tunnel-inducing scrolling.
