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.

Selection required on a filtered pick list

I posted a question about how to get the "Selection required" validation on a filtered pick list field. As I didn't get any suggestions this might be a feature that's missing. The original forum post is here:

Allow Preview of the Attached File but Restrict Download

Status: Accepted
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎05-31-2013 10:52 AM - edited ‎05-31-2013 10:59 AM

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.

Automatically Expose DMSID as a Field Type

Status: New Idea
by Distinguished Contributor obourne on ‎01-29-2014 03:45 PM

It would be useful to have a new Field Type that is the DMSID for items in the workspace. This is such a useful bit of information it just seems to make sense to have it "at the ready".

It would be great if there was a native support for 2d and linear bar codes.


I've 2 different online sources thus far and both have had issues. 1 was depricated (and it was recommened bu ADSK and provided by Google) and onother where the company was purchased by Yahoo and now I can't access their website to get some information.


While online/free resources are great I need reliable service.

Administration Navigation

Status: Future Consideration
by j.stewart on ‎08-15-2013 07:00 PM

In the general workspace area it would be great to support easy navigation between the workspace features.


When working on the Item Detail Tab the header shows  <Administration><WorkspaceName><Workspace Layout>

It would be nice to support the abiltiy to click on the WorkspaceName and returns to the list of features for that Workspace.


Currently when you click cancel it returns to the Workspace Manager that lists all the workspaces.

If the workspace that you are working in is at the botom of a list of 30 workspaces, then you need to scroll down to click on another feature. Not ideal from an Administration User Experience.


Navigating from the active Header links would be sweet



Status: Future Consideration
I think this is a good idea. We are trying to find ways to improve the navigation. We will add this to our list. PS - f you you are in the Workspace Setting, and you click Cancel it will take you up to the same workspace list.. I also tried this with Item Details Tab, Grid Tab, and Bill of Materials Tab by using the Cancel button, it will take you out to the same workspace.

Good day,


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.


Thank you very much.

Support for derived fields in Grid Tab

Status: Accepted
by keith.tyler on ‎06-27-2013 09:02 AM

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.).

Allow a BULK IMPORT of Attachments

Status: Accepted
by Contributor Asingh5 on ‎11-05-2012 08:15 AM

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.

Copy custom views between users

Status: Accepted
by Employee jared.sund ‎06-14-2012 01:45 PM - edited ‎06-19-2012 09:24 AM

I've seen that the custom views created in the item viewer are not avaliable for other users.

Is there a way to do this?


As administrator I'd like to create some default views for all the users
