Importing file properties to Autodesk Vault

If you're making the move from a legacy data management solution to Autodesk Vault you will no doubt want to make sure you migrate as much of the data and information as possible.

Autodesk Vault will manage pretty much any Windows based file type. It's not just a data management tool for 2D & 3D design data, Vault will manage files such as MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, Adobe PDF, images, photos etc. If you have an existing solution that manages your data it is likely that there will meta data associated with these files. Meta data is all of the extra property based information that is assigned to the file such as author, version, revision, state, description, title, project etc.

When data is migrated from the legacy data management solution over to Autodesk Vault we can make sure that all of the meta data information is also transferred. This is how we do it....

Happy Vaulting!
