I’ve mentioned before that there are some issues with working with Sets on the cloud (in both SharePoint and Studio) but the solution is almost too simple. I’m actually a little ticked at myself for not thinking of doing this sooner because I actually USE this workflow at times.
Sets allows you to create a drawing log really easily. Once the Set is created, simply make that and then pin the log to your file access panel. That’s it. Incredibly simple right? You can just use the drawing index page, if there is one, but a full log does have the potential to be more useful if you want to see revisions easier.
When you go to load a Set from the DMS toolbar, it takes quite a while, and I’ve noticed that the files don’t automatically try to ‘check out’ when opened from a hyperlink. If I do this from the drawing log… they ‘check out’ themselves. Plus you’re not opening the whole set, you’re really only opening the drawing log.
SharePoint doesn’t recognize the .bet file that Revu creates for a Set, so you can’t open it directly from SharePoint, like you can with a regular PDF. The drawing log is a regular pdf file, so it opens.
I’m kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier.
