Vault | Find all Files Checked Out

This weekend I needed to get around some checked in files, and Vault wasn’t being clear about which ones. So I decided to check everything in. The trick however, is how to determine which ones are still out?

Autodesk Vault Professional 2012 FindI found this tip in the Autodesk Vault Discussion Groups:

Find with Filter

  1. Perform a search using the Find tool
  2. Browse to the portion of the Vault that you need to search
  3. On the Advanced tab, pick the ‘Checked Out By’ property, and apply the ‘Is Not Empty’ condition.
  4. Add the filter to the query list using the ‘Add’ button
  5. Pick the ‘Find Now’ button

As you can see in the image, the list of files with that property show up in the dialog directly below the search functionality.

    how about ‘check out by’ contains this will restrict the results just to the ones you have checked out instead of every single file that is checked out.

    how about ‘check out by’ contains ‘YourUserName’ this will restrict the results just to the ones you have checked out instead of every single file that is checked out. Since there could be multiple people working in the same folder.
