    PROBLEMS WITH MULTI-USER ENVIRONMENT

    Kolbey Pruitt

      I am having a terrible time trying to work while sharing a common library and PDM vault with several other people. No matter how we set our settings it just doesn't seem user friendly. The problem is that there are so many library parts that everybody will have open at the same time and depending on how we have the MUE settings (Open referenced documents with read-only access) we will not be able to get write access if someone else has it already. So naturally we assumed we would want that box check so that we will be in read-only mode by default unless write-access is requested but that is where the problem occures. NOT ONLY does it make the library parts read-only but it also make the Vault parts read-only (regardless of PDM ownership). when this happens I end up having all sorts of rebuild issues and not saving things that I thought I save. It seems like the "Open Referenced Documents" option should only apply to non-pdm parts..

       

      I would really appreciate it if someone can help us.
