Data Shortcuts AssistantWin64, English
General Usage Instructions
1) Once installed, Data Shortcuts Assistant saves the Working Folders information of Projects (in xml files) that the user has connected to, historically or currently. These will be viewable by clicking the calendar. It is important to allow for at least a day after installation as this tool only starts saving the xml files after using Data Shortcuts in Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, otherwise the interface's history is empty except on the current day.
2) Launch the Data Shortcuts Assistant from the ribbon using the first icon. The dialog box interface will then show up with the records of Working Folders and their respective DataShortcuts Folders. As the days progress, the user can click on the calendar from the previous days to check the Project's Working Folders the user has already used. Any historical Working folder that the user may set as current will be imported in the current Day as well.
3) The user can the click the button 'Set and Exit' to set the Working Folder for a project. This will close the dialog box and set the chosen Working Folder as current in the Toolspace of Civil 3D
4) Search Data shortcuts history by using the second icon from ribbon, or from the main interface which also provides a search button. Type any word(s) associated with any previous project in the search box and get results fast. Results are displayed as the user pauses typing for at least 500milliseconds. If the search box is empty, it grabs the last 5 days of history and displays the results. Select and double-click in the results box to set a Working Folder/Data Shortcut folder as current.
This command launches the Search user-interface to allow user to search any keyword associated to previous projects. If the search box is empty, it grabs the last 5 days of history and displayed as results.

All saved DataShortcuts history are private to the user only. The files are xml files stored in the user's profile in Windows Roaming folder.
For Team-based DataShortcuts history, this will be considered in a future release. The Team-based history will be optionally shared to the team as this will be stored in a local network location.
