Shortcuts on dashboard

Status: Future Consideration
by LaineShipman on ‎09-26-2014 07:22 AM

I want to be able to add a shortcut to the search feature of the document control window on the start up home page when I open datastay.  Currently its a few extra steps to get there and page loading can take a bit.  I'd like a faster way to get to what I need to see.

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.

Pop Up HTML Table Report from Dashboard

Status: Accepted

This is strictly a UI type improvement.  We have multiple use cases where allowing for public reports to be opened from the dashboard report section would help greatly.  These could be anything from open user tasks (non-WF related) in certain workspaces or a list of open project items.  Our users have repeatedly asked for that even if the information is two clicks away in the reports section.  This would be benefitial when you have reports that you use to drive process rather than make decisions.  Especially because the charts do not have drill down capability.

PLM360 is proving to be a great tool for us in support of new idea mangement, project selection and project management. But one other piece could make all the difference...


A communication tool. Something where we could share quick notes or a chat with teammates in a project community. Perhaps being able to "watch" an item for new comments, specific conversations regarding that item that are happing everyday on some level. The daily notifications are helpful but a section of the homepage or a seperate window that could be kept open that displays "live" data would be fantastic.


The goal, replace all project specific communication now taking place in e-mail. Facilitate and store this communication within an item and display all "watched" item communications on my homepge / dashboard.

My dashboard chart views

Status: Future Consideration
by Contributor RBocox on ‎01-17-2014 04:05 PM

In my dashboard, I have several charts that I have created and would like to see them as I have rotated or have performed slice movements.

The problem is that when I get the charts looking like I want them, they return to their normal 3D un-sliced and un-rotated views once closed. Therefore, when I want to view them at a future time, "like daily" I have to once again rotate & slice it to my liking and changing percentages or numbers etc.


Is there a way to save the view of the chart within my dashboard so that I don't have to go through this every time I open a chart?

My dashboard - Graph display

Status: Future Consideration
by markalawrence on ‎11-05-2013 12:16 AM

Please can you look into increasing the number of links that can be added to this area

There is a lot of wasted space that can be utilised here

Another 2 graphs each side of each row can be added, adding another 12 without changing the aspect of the dashboard.

At the moment this is just wasted space that i certainly can utilise

Add a bookmark via scriptiing

Status: Future Consideration
by Valued Contributor Bill.Bogan on ‎09-25-2013 10:02 AM

I would like to use scripting to "spawn" a bookmark on newly created items and push it to the usersdashboard.


Is that possible? I don't see a script that looks like a candidate for that use.




Status: Future Consideration
This is an interesting request. At this time you will have to manually pin the bookmark to the dashboard. We will take this into consideration.

I have several questions to Report chart. In attached is one example where is problem with displaying of values on axe and above the column. 

Is it possible to setup format of values (f.e. from 3.6 to 3600.00)?

Is it possible to setup Show Values in default?

Are you improving and developing this tool in short time?

Thank you for answers!

Color in descriptor

descriptor Colour.PNG


I want that color to be displated in the descriptor. Then I can identify the items more easily.

Status: Solution Provided
Hi Tim, This is a good request, but have you consider using the Edit View (pencil) to move the Status to the "Showing Columns" this will also allow you to see the color flag.

We would like the ability to establish default or role-based configuration of a user's dashboard, so that pre-selected charts are displayed upon login and we don't have to provide instructions to each and every user about how they should set up their dashboard.


One should also be able to configure which areas are expanded or collapsed by default on a user's dashboard page.




Status: Accepted
HI Michael, This is an interesting request. I need a little bit more details. 1. The administrator will need to set all the different views. For example if there are 10 groups, 10 setups will be require. 2. Who will determine which groups require which dashboard view for the different charts. For example if sales, you will need to activate Sales Quote, Customer, RFQ, Tasks and Projects. 3. How will you handle the scalability and maintenance. If you have 200+ users, you will need to determine each time you add a new users to know which category and what groups that belong to. 4. What if there's overlapping? Or certain individuals require additional charts, do you allow access, or the administrator will need to add the requirements. This feature request sound good, but we need to understand how to manage the roles/groups and scalability for big accounts. thanks, Trung
