Looking for the ability to deliver content (Blog, Announcements, Reports etc) for users on their home page. Perhaps a section that is admin controlled and can be filled with mutliple types of content. Could fit in with the social concepts kicked around, however then it would require the Admins being able to set users to follow this content. We are facing the issue of keeping a lasting place of issue resolutions, announcements, and updates for our users inside of PLM 360. We could do it through email or in a workspace, but both lack to this would be visibility upon opening PLM 360.
Streamline the process for setting up administrator rights including better documentation regarding the Administration [SYSTEM] group and the workspace-agnostic Special Permissions (Administer Users, Setup Administration, and Share Reports). It took me a while to figure out exactly what gives users administrator rights, and I'm still not exactly sure what the pros/cons of the system-protected group is vs using those workspace permissions. It's confusing and illogical to include the administrator permissions in the workspace roles.
It is highly tedious and annoying to attach a pdf or a dwg file to a list of items in a workspace. Having the ability to bulk upload attachments to specific items in a workspace would be ideal for mass drawing updates or file updates.
One solution would be importing a zip file of the attaching files and an excel file that would have the item descriptor in one column and the corresponding file name in the other column.
To aide breaking down of a BOM View into lists for different purposes the custom BOM view is great. But when you have multiple functional areas looking at that information such as Procurement, Fabrication, Wharehouse etc. it would be nice to be able to filter the list to show only items in the BOM that met a specific criteria. Similar to the way Excell uses it Autofilter.
The idea would be that you have a filter row you could pick or enter the filter than apply and the currently displayed view would get filtered to show only matching items (parent items could be included if that causes issues). This functionality would be used for both Nested and Flat BOM Views.
I have 2 suggestions, first, would it be possible to have an option to hide all the deleted user accounts. Or an option to show all the active users account only. I had many contract manufacturers and the users can be created and be deleted frequently. My user account list just get longer and longer with inactive or deleted accounts. I would really appreciate if the system allowed me to choose to see active accounts only. This will make things more easily whenever I need to change the information of users.
Another suggestion is to have the organisation field editable by the PLM administrator as users tend to place all kinds of department names or comapnay names that they think is correct. Even though they are advice what are the names to be insert but again it will be subjected to the users to follow. As mention earlier, I had to handle many contract manufacturers so I need to place them in an organisation code that can identify them easily.
Really appreciate if you can look into my suggestions.
Currently, Derived Fields are only supported in the Item Details tab. Please allow the use of derived fields in the Grid Tab. In addition, I can foresee wanting to use derived fields in other areas as well (Bill of Materials, Sourcing, etc.).
