What's New in Autodesk Vault 2022

The Vault team has worked on bringing a more modern, connected and insightful experience in Vault 2022.

With a focus on features per persona and roles within the company, enhancing how users are connected to design data and better integration and better access for participants who need access via the desktop or mobile devices.

Show Details in Dockable Window

Inside of Inventor, Autodesk has added an Integrated data experience to access and organise all design information in a dockable panel.

Inside of this panel, the designer can see where a design is used before making changes.

The designer can assign an Item and derive engineering BOM information within the environment without leaving the application.

In addition, they can access Change Order information related to the design to understand why change has been triggered & the goal of the change request.

Released Date and Approver Properties

Autodesk has added the Latest Approver and Latest Released Date properties which can be exposed in revision tables and title blocks.
