Allows you to update documents on a Batch Server while you continue to work on other tasks. You can set up batch update jobs for a single document or a select set of documents you select in the Detail View. This command is available when you right-click on a single drawing or a select set of drawings in the Detail View.
The Batch > Update command displays the Schedule Wizard so you can specify whether the drawing should be updated now or at a scheduled date and time. The batch update job runs on a batch server. If the command is not available on the shortcut menu for your documents, batch processing is not configured.
To walk-through the Schedule Wizard and set up batch updates, see Batch Schedule Wizard Common Tasks.
To view and manage current batch jobs, see Manage batch jobs.
Before using Batch > Update for 3D Model Data documents, you must set the appropriate surface styles and aspects for the model data. See Set surface styles and aspects for 3D model data documents.
The Batch > Update command detects when only border changes have been made and only updates the border portion of the drawing that is out-of-date.
If the software cannot make a SmartPlant Foundation server connection when you use Batch > Update for 3D Model Data documents, you are prompted to provide a valid login and password.
