Item Preview Enhancment

Status: Comments Requested
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎11-06-2012 08:22 AM - edited ‎11-06-2012 08:25 AM

The TABS section of the preview should open up and expand when clicked on instead of redirecting to the specific item. This would allow the quick easy access to key information such as BOM items, attachments, relationships, changes ext. Also there should be the ability to click the specified print view for the item as well.

Great Idea, I've seen some mockups that are very similar to this idea!

Organize Groups/Roles Section Better

Status: Comments Requested
by Contributor Asingh5 on ‎09-13-2012 11:38 AM

Instead of having all the roles for every workspace just listed top to bottom, it should be sectioned for each workspace separately.


Also if the possibility of creating custom sections in the groups tab would be available, it would help organize things much better!

Clone Item Permission

Status: Accepted
by matt.wegmann2 on ‎03-18-2014 01:56 PM

Currently the clone permission is inherently tied to the edit item permission.  Has there been any discussion on making that a unique permission.  Specifically in by determining if the item details can be cloned as well as allowing the BOM, relationships, or grid to be cloned as well.  The use case would be to restrict part or BOM cloning to key individuals. I could also see the use case where you would want to restrict cloning of the attachments or relationships.

Hi Matt, This is a good request. Many customers that I have been working with also asking similar request. We will add this to our feature list. Thanks, Trung

Formatting with Reports on PLM360

Status: Comments Requested
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎03-01-2013 07:12 AM - edited ‎03-01-2013 07:33 AM

Currently when generating a report, PLM360 provides a plain excel output which is not very practical dealing with a large amount of information for over 1000 items.


When exporting the report to Excel, the report should be formatted similarly as the HTML version.


Below are some features to make reports on PLM more practical. 


  • Freeze Panes - Top Row
  • Filters on column headings
  • Bordering lines to show column separation
  • Colored rows

To illustrate and example of what I mean...



This is how a regular excel exported report looks.        This is how it should ideally look.

Script Version Control

Status: Comments Requested
by Active Contributor ForrestJudd on ‎11-16-2012 08:25 AM

I'd love to see more robust script management.  Ideally I'd like to see the ability to officially version or rev scripts.  In addition to the Save button, you could add a button for Version.  This would store the script in its current state with the appropriate verison number.  


In addition, I'd like to review previous versions of the script and have the option of making a previous version the current version.

YES, YES, and YES!!! I love this idea!

Allow bulk Import into Multiple Selection Picklists

Status: Implemented
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎11-14-2012 10:52 AM - edited ‎11-14-2012 10:53 AM

When using the import tool, performing a bulk import of values into a "single selection" linking picklist is possible. Unfortunately I cannot select a "Multiple Selection" linking picklist it in my import to do the same thing.


This feature is very important for our company since it would allow us to show our linked product items in one specific field, as opposed to having multiple "single selection picklists"--which doesn’t make a clean visual. 


The data I have is in a excel format. With over thousands of entries, having the import tool to bulk import the linking picklist values in the multiple selection picklists would allow me to provide my tenant with the information it needs efficiently and visually appealing.

Import BOM and Item Improvements

It is now possible to import BOM and item data directly to multi-select fields.


3 Kudos

This is a possible workaround because classification is not available.


We would like the ability to hide and display fields in a form by user role and effective date



Pricing Form needs the ability to change for different Price List effective dates and yet still be accessible and editable for about 3 periods at a time.

Effective dates only affect the configuration of the BOM view, not user roles.

Group to Role debug jumper

Status: Future Consideration
by Valued Contributor Bill.Bogan on ‎08-30-2013 02:29 PM

I find myself going between groups and roles when trying to isolate permissions and group-role relationships.

It would be helpful to have a "jumper" to get me to a role from a group - as long as I'm not editing, but just evaluating.


see attached.

Status: Future Consideration
I understand the need to quickly move between groups and roles. We will take a look for different methods and ways to improve this. Currently we will add this to our list of enhancements. Continue submitting those ideas...
