Vault 2016 is finally here, and it has quite a few new features, my favourite, and one that has been requested by several Vault users over the years has to be the ability to roll back a Status of a file.
To roll Back a File's Lifecycle State
- Select a file in the main view and select
A dialog displays describing to which state the file will be rolled back.
- Click Continue to complete the lifecycle state rollback.
Note: You must be a Document Manager Level 2 or Administrator to roll back a file's lifecycle state
Rules for Rolling Back a File Lifecycle State
The lifecycle of a file can be rolled back if:
- The file is currently checked in.
- No parent versions consume the current child version that you want to roll back.
- The previous lifecycle state has not been deleted.
- The file is not in <null> definition.
- There is no label on the current version of the file.
- The administrator has not enabled the Restrict File and Item Lifecycle State Changes to Change Orders option.
See Configure Restrictions for Lifecycle State Changes Using Change Orders for more information.
Other new features are listed below.
- New Item, BOM, and Change Order Features and Enhancements
- New Copy Design Experience
