What can powerJobs do for you?

The purpose of powerJobs extends beyond the boundaries of merely publishing files. It embodies numerous productive combos that give you greater and wider options for publishing a PDF, DXF or STEP files. 

It enables you to automatically and reliably create PDFs or DXFs or STEPs every time you release new files, items or change orders, offering great flexibility in terms of output location and formatting. 

Publishing a file to a shared network folder and giving a custom file name is limited with Vault and also proves to be slightly complicated. Whereas powerJobs gives you the flexibility to name a file as you wish and publish to any shared folder, ERP system, SharePoint, or any other location.

Automatic file publishing

Please Note: The gray tick marks mean that powerJobs can perform these functionalities but it is not included in the original product. Not to worry, we have sample jobs on our GitHub site just for your convenience. All of which can also be modified through PowerShell scripts according to your requirements. 

Do you have Vault jobs that are time-consuming and must be done manually?   

Like, exporting BOM from your Vault to the ERP system as an xml or a csv file can just not be error-prone but also tedious to process. We just happen to have the right solution for you!  

powerJobs' flexible customization using PowerShell scripts allows you to create a custom job that can automatically export a BOM as an xml or a csv file format into a given shared folder, so that it can be picked up by your ERP system and processed.  

Please Note: Sample BOM Jobs to publish BOMs are not included in the product. But it can be easily created and included in powerJobs using PowerShell scripts.

If you are having trouble connecting your Vault and  ERP, have a look at our CONNECT product POWERGATE, which is specifically designed to reduce the time on creating, updating and transferring engineering BOMs to the ERP system.

If printing drawings is still your thing, then let it be done automatically! 

powerJobs can print all the drawings of a given assembly in the right order by selecting the appropriate printer for the given page size. 

In larger organizations, powerJobs may even choose the appropriate printer for a given user group or department and add relevant information like the customer's name or project code to the print.

Oftentimes the information about a change in the lifecycle state of a design, is an imperative requirement that is to be notified to all involved departments and personnel. This is usually a time-consuming and mundane manual process. 

But with powerJobs, you can effortlessly configure it to automatically trigger these notifications whenever there is a lifecycle state change in the design and inform everybody who are involved in the project, through automated emails, Microsoft Teams chat and in any other similar manner. 

This auto-notification may contain important details about the affected part, BOMs, images of the part and also a link to the Vault.

Product Features

The greatest benefit of powerJobs is that it doesn’t require you to be a script developer to make use of the features and it usually takes a few minutes to install and set it up. But there are explicit advantages that comes with the solution which will ultimately add quality to your work. 

Smart Alerts

powerJobs can inform vault users whenever jobs run into an error. Through windows desktop notification, users get instant alerts when jobs are added to the job queue as well when jobs fail due to errors. This prepares users to take immediate action to ensure process continuity.

Smart Queuing

The vault job processor queues every job, regardless of necessity, in the same manner with the same priority. With the new powerJobs, by filtering compatible file types, only relevant jobs are queued, ultimately increasing process throughput.

Smart Security

The presence of guard rails helps to prevent the processing file from being edited by other users in the network. This ensures that the workflow is not disrupted by locking that particular file that is being processed by the job, thereby avoiding termination errors.
