Multiple Workspace Picklist

Status: Comments Requested
by *Expert Elite* on ‎09-20-2012 12:19 PM

I need to attach different parent workspaces to a Task item.


Picklist works great for one, but not more. I don't need multiple parents, but the option to tag alink to the parant from one of three workspaces.

I would love the ability to filter linked tasks on the project management tab so I don't have to look at tasks that are already completed, especially when they still show as red if they finished late.  


Another nice feature would be removing linked tasks from the project via script once the linked task transitions to a completed state.

Pivot value update

Status: Comments Requested
by Active Contributor adminplm360 on ‎06-18-2013 08:21 AM

If I change the pivot value in Work Space A is not updated in Work Space B until I actually change the derived field  into another value. The derived field will change but the pivot wont.


I would like that the pivot value updates as the derived value does


Attached is how is happening right now.



Status: Comments Requested
This is part of the feature spec for derived fields, that is to provide options on how changes propagate. The currently functionality is defined that updates are only performed on explicit update/edit by the user. There are plans to add additional functionality to allow updates to propagate without user action. I'll add this idea Station request to our feature requirements to make sure this behavior is covered correctly.

I was experimenting with adding items to the Project Management tab and having added a start date, I moved to adding finish dates.  It would enhance the usability, reduce errors and save time if the calendar interface for the finish date started with the start date (or at least the month of the start date) so you can then pick from there. It isn't a problem if the start date is today or in the near future, but if the start date is not for a couple of months, then it would just save having to click through ahead a month or 2,3 4 etc from the calendar which currently comes up with today's date as default.  


There is a validation check to stop you being able to save a task as ending before it has begun, but obviously that then takes more time to correct, which could have been avoided if the calendar steered things this way to start with.

It would be great if you could import a Microsoft project into PLM 360 as recreating large projects and task is very time consuming.

Select specific fields in the permission

Status: Accepted
by NPIADMIN on ‎02-19-2013 05:13 AM

Hello Team,

We would like to be able to select Item details fields inidividualy and map them to Permissions.

This will allow us to display different information residing on one same form.

Similar request around individual field selection got raise for the Preview functionality but this function should in fact be extended to the entire workspace and be defined at Group Permission level.

Please let me know if you need any furhter details.



Status: Accepted
Hi Sergio, Currently we have a feature that allows the admin to set the individual sections with restricted user group. This will allow the view and edit of certain sections based on permissions of the group which can be different from the main workspace roles/permission. Many customers find this more helpful than to set each specific field one by one. Please let me know if this works for you, or you still need the option to set each individual field one by one. Thanks,

Timeline Formatting

Status: Future Consideration
by Mentor on ‎12-01-2012 08:01 AM



In Project Management it would be very useful if the Timeline could be formatted (configured) to do the following;


- Display the timeline by day, week or month depending on users's requirement

- Add a scroll bar to scroll through the project if required (i.e. if a project is running for a year but the timeline is displayed in days then the user would need to be able to scroll through the timeline horizontally)

- Add an option to display certain days (e.g. weekends or organisation holidays) as greyed out

- Change the 'light grey on white' colour scheme to something more high contrast

- Make it easier to print a copy of the Gantt chart





Status: Future Consideration
This is a good idea. We will add to our feature list. thanks, Trung

Overlaying Report Types

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor obourne on ‎11-16-2012 08:26 AM

I want to overlay two report types - Stacked and Line charts. My reason is that I want to create a chart of "hours needed" for all projects company wide by month for an entire year (hence a stacked chart) but I want to overlay available man hours on top of that so I can visually see where I'm short workers.


Having visibility into future labor needs is critical for senior management as our hiring cycle can take months.

BOM Views for Flat BOM

Status: New Idea
by Valued Contributor BiggePLM on ‎07-25-2014 11:51 AM

It would be a time saver to be able to configure a custom BOM view for the Flat view, Similar to the nested view. This could possibly be implemented with a checkbox for and Applies to Nested, Flat or Both.


We have set up custom BOM field that is used to trigger spawing of tasks to perform action on the item in the BOM Row, I.E. Generate an RFQ request where the item info is copied via script to the RFQ Record. The issue is that in the nested view the quantity shown is the unit quantity not the project rolled up quantity. To get that you need to switch to the flat view get the rolled up quantity and switch back to the nested view and enter the quantity to Request for Quote.


This is just one use case, but feel that functionality would make the BOM View for useful.

It would be helpful to be able to see the status of an item when editing in the project management tab.
