Automatic Reports by Email

Status: Accepted
by Contributor matt.kelsay on ‎08-27-2014 05:22 AM

It would be great to have the ability to have reports run on a certain time interval and then emailed automatically. The time interval and recipients could be chosen when setting up the report. Either having the report printed in html in the body of the email or have an excel file attached to the email would work.


For example: I would like a report to run every Friday and be sent to certain people.

Report Folders

Status: Accepted

The ability to move reports into a folder structure that could then be shared or made public would be helpful.


As the number of shared reports grows it can become tedious to find the one you are looking for.


If we had the ability to group reports into a folder (say by type or department) it would really help the user interface.

A new report type for Planners

Status: Comments Requested
by ACapuzzo on ‎09-19-2012 09:11 AM

Both for Service Requests and Sales Meetings planning would be usefull to have a kid of report called

something like Planning report showing Dates on columns(for visits, meeting, events, etc) and being able to select another field for rows and cell contents.


It would be something like what MS Excel calls Pivot Tables.
I understand it may be not trivial to develop but, from the management point of view, the applications would be many.
Time management is an high priority issue for all.


For instance, think about a report with dates in columns titles, technicians names on rows titles and the the scheduled customer's name, with contact's phone number and Service Request descriptions inside the cells.

I too like this idea... I think to build on this, we should expand the reporting engine to allow for lots more configuration. The hopper is always full, but I'd like to have enhancements to the reporting engine to be a focus point for us in the future. I would love to hear more ideas/thoughts, images, of the types of reporting capability folks would like to see.

Export Workspace View

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor j.hendrickson on ‎03-05-2014 08:49 AM

I would like the ability to export the data from a workspace view rather than having to create a report first.  Second best would be to be able to create reports that mirror workspace views (maybe even keep them linked so that a linked report always matches a particular view).

Reports and Advanced print views.

Status: Comments Requested
by Product Support on ‎01-28-2014 08:29 AM

It would be great if we could:


Have the ability to choose a report as an element (in advance print view) and then have it embedded in the email sent out.




Choosing a report and the file type of the attachment, and have that sent out with the advance print view.

Formatting with Reports on PLM360

Status: Comments Requested
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎03-01-2013 07:12 AM - edited ‎03-01-2013 07:33 AM

Currently when generating a report, PLM360 provides a plain excel output which is not very practical dealing with a large amount of information for over 1000 items.


When exporting the report to Excel, the report should be formatted similarly as the HTML version.


Below are some features to make reports on PLM more practical. 


  • Freeze Panes - Top Row
  • Filters on column headings
  • Bordering lines to show column separation
  • Colored rows

To illustrate and example of what I mean...



This is how a regular excel exported report looks.        This is how it should ideally look.

Our product data and processes are very dependent on effectivity dates. We need to be able to deliver effectivity dates for data downstream for integration with other systems and reporting.

We already have this on our feature list.

In PLM360, the history of an item is available through a change log, however, the change log is not available through the API for each record in order to enable historical reporting on the actions for an item.

Use Case: changes to Product Name as it moves from temporary to legal versions.

Previously we had problems with product name changes over time because we were communicating to customers about products they didn’t buy.


Possible workarounds:

We could write on every transaction into the ODS


For Ad hoc we could clone records into another workspace and store them for a historical view

The ability to create a report that mines data from multiple workspaces would be fantastic.
