Document Exclusion list

Many ProjectWise Administrator's ask if there is a way to optimize Document Processor. Many get confused what to add in the File Type Associations in the properties of each Document Processors. Well hopefully this will help you.

First off something you might want to reconsider is putting a * under the application column and Mapped to DGN's You are basically saying for all files to be read as DGN's. This is a common configuration we see with users environments.

You can put in a exclusion for files types that are not supported such as (avi, mpeg, mp3, mp2, exe, wav, zip, mpeg4, ) are just a few to mention. What you can do is look in the Async-Temp folder to catch any file type that do not belong in the folder. (Usually sort it out by size) and include the file extensions that are fairly large in the exclusion list.

You can find supported file types in the ProjectWise Administrator help as well: (please see ProjectWise Administrator for more details)
