IM118897 - Managing Your Properties with Vault Professional

Session Description

This class will look at properties in Vault Professional data management software, both system and user defined. We'll explore where to access them, how to create mappings to your CAD files, and how to use that information in Vault software or on your CAD files themselves. I will use examples from my own Vault setup to show the power of property data and how to use it. Examples will include property mapping to both files and items. Come to this class to start thinking about how these might help you in your Vault setup.
