Updates existing drawings or reports if they are out-of-date. This command updates all the documents associated with a drawing or report component. You can also multi-select documents within the Detail View.
This command is available when you right-click a component in the Console hierarchy and point to the Batch submenu.
If batch processing is configured for the selected item, the command displays the Schedule Wizard so you can specify whether the update should perform now or at a scheduled date and time. The update is performed on the Batch Server. See Batch Schedule Wizard Common Tasks.
For volume drawings, the Batch > Update Document(s) command is not available until you place drawing volumes for a volume component in the Space Management task. For composed drawings, this command is not available until you create the drawings in a 3D task. For reports, this command is not available until you create the report by choosing a report template.
See Manage batch jobs for information on viewing or modifying the currently scheduled batch update jobs.
The software preserves many of the modifications you make between regenerations of volume drawings. For example, if you annotate a volume drawing and then regenerate it, your annotations still display on the updated drawing.
If the software cannot make a SmartPlant Foundation server connection when you use the Batch > Update Command for 3D Model Data documents, you are prompted to provide a valid login and password.
