Currently any attachment that is uploaded on PLM360 for a specific item can be downloaded from a user if the correct permission is granted.
If it was possible for a user to only have the preview functionality in the attachment tab permissible, that would be very beneficial in regards to security. This would allow users the access to view the attachment without having the threat of intellectual property being distributed.
Below is an image of the attachments tab. If the links circled below were removed or hidden, that would provide a suitable solution were the user wouldn’t be able to download the attachment.
Also if it were possible to view a larger preview of the attachment, that would enhance the user experience.
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.
A function where a "desktop folder" can be added inorder to add/view documents from the desktop/finder directly into PLM360. The folder to be added should be connected to a certain workspace, where the user can chose which workspaces should be able to "share" information.
The folder should be a direct connection through the username and password from the user, where permissions should be added depending on what role the user has.
Similar to dropbox, but with the added finess of PLM360.

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.
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.).
