It would be geatly benefitial if there was a way to pass a parameter automatically to a form when creating a new item via the URL? For example the following URL is currently used to go directly to the form to create a new item;
The following is a usage case for this functionality;
I'm creating a workspace to allow sales managers to submit RFCQs (Request For Customisation Quotation) to the engineering department. When the sales manager goes to create an RFCQ he does so by clicking on a shortcut that brings him directly to the form for a new RFCQ in PLM;
The sales managers are required to fill in fields on the form such as 'Customer', 'Sales Region', 'Industry Type' etc. However some of these fields (like 'Sales Region' will always be the same for each sales manager. So I want to give them a shortcut that links them a new RFCQ where the 'Sales Region' field is already filled in to match their personal requirement. Some other fields like 'Customer' should default to the largest customer for that region.
The functionality allows us to embed 'smart' hyperlinks from within other enterprise systems that open up new forms in PLM that are pre-populated with the correct information. We already use this to great effect with SAP and some other web-based applications we use.
The API is not useful in this case as we don't necessarily want to create an item - we just want to open the web form to create a new item with pre-filled information.
The 'default values' cannot be used as they will differ depending on user
The create behaviour script cannot be used as it will not pre-populate the form and will be a difficult script to maintain
We are deriving information from a workspace.Sometimes the derived information needs to be edited. We don't want to edit the workspace it is deriving from.
For example: I have a worksapce with a list of approved builders and I have another workspace with a filtered picklist that references that list of builders and imports fields as derived. However, sometimes a builder that we want to use is not in our list and we want to add it as a temporary only and not add it to our list of approved builders.
In the approved builders list if there was an option for "other" that would trigger the fields that are derived to be editable.
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.
I'd like if a filter could be added to the workspace relationships. The seach bar is nice when added the workspace relationships; but sometimes you only want a certain area of a workspace item list available.
Eg. From our autodesk vault item import, we have all the sub-components of a weldment available as their own items, along with the weldment. When selecting from the list of items however, I would not want to have to see all the sub-components of the weldment.
If you could add the tabs to the workspace the same way you add a field, you would gain a ton of functionality. Even if you were still restricted to the same types of tabs currently available (grid, BOM, etc.), being able to add multiples of a tab and to add them only when necessary would be a great boost.
