Using html you can customize your Vaults homepage, this is useful if you want to add links to websites and folders or display any other information for all of your companies Vault users to see.
The html file for this page is located on your Vault server at C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS [Version]\Server\Web\Services\VaultHTML\index.html. When a vault client is started it will pick up any
HTML document in this folder called ‘index’ and display that as the homepage. You can add to the existing file or create a new one from scratch, in both cases I would suggest taking a copy of the original first.
In the video below I start by adding 3 hyperlinks to the current homepage by adding the below code underneath the <body> tag in the index.html document. The text highlighted blue is the text you would change
to add your own websites and display tags in.
<a href="http://www.cadline.co.uk/" target="_blank">Cadline</a>
<a href="http://www.cadlinecommunity.co.uk/" target="_blank">Cadline Community</a>
<a href="http://www.cadlinetraining.co.uk/" target="_blank">Cadline Training</a>
Next I set the index page to a Cadline homepage I created which has image hyperlinks to websites and folders as well as an animated gif file.
Note: If you modify the index.html and the change is not reflected in Vault you need to delete your temporary internet files, Vault will then read your modified file.
