It would be VERY useful to allow a tenant to be divided into secure "Projects" so that access to information relating to different projects could be controlled centrally. This should allow workspaces to be managed centrally, but used optionally on each project. Similarly, roles should be managed centrally, but users are given a role on each project allowing them to have differing levels of access. This model is already used to good effect in Buzzsaw.
It would be nice if the software automatically resized the thumbnails in the table display view. We accidentally uploaded full resolution images and not scaled down versions. When we went to the table view the software downloaded each of the 200 4mb images and nearly locked up the web browser.
Adding Project Management items in the Project Management tab is tedious at times. Being able to add project items through scripting would allow an automated procedure involving less time consumption and tedious routine work.
Evaluting the process of a physical Design Review meeting, we've identified a want for a Mass Checkout/In feature. Additionally, it would be nice to have the option to simply Mass Delete attachments. This would give the user the option to bypass the "history" functionality (which is very useful to "build" by replacing files with all the marked-up then updated versions) which becomes very time-consuming when dealing with large numbers of attached files.
A "real" solution might be to simply embrace full Design Review functionality and workflows in the varous Autodesk 360 products! .dwf(x) is your own file-type... why it always seems to be an afterthought, I don't understand.
For any design review process to work efficiently, we need attributes of the file (.dwf, for instance) that can be searched and sorted. It is desireable to know the approval status without opening the file (this is more about files that are created and/or exist on my computer)! Secondly, it could save a lot of file re-creation (and allow the re-use of the file to stop round-tripping from the cloud) if the .dwf (and .dwfx) document had the option of whether-or-not to print either Mark-ups, Stamps or both!!!!
Now, I must admit where a "cloud-only" mark-up/review/approval workflow falls apart (as of today)... it's for those of us who'd like to use the .dwf(x) as an "underlay", right under the sheet-to-be-corrected. This use of the marked-up .dwf(x) allows the Autocad/Inventor user to complete and track the tasks as they are done... in their native application! If Autocad/Inventor could open a cloud-based .dwf(x), edit it, then re-publish it... transparently... it would be easier to complete the Design Review process. This is more about the Design Review product than PLM360, but I'd think that Autodesk would like to have one solution, rather than the several vaguely-similar markup/review approaches they currently employ.
To summerize my suggestions;
Mass Checkout/In in PLM360
Cloud-ize all of Design Review for consistant use in all Autodesk 360 and off-the-shelf products
Add file attributes to .dwf(x) which indicate Approved status (if they don't exist)
Add the option of printing DR markups, stamps, both or neither (if it doesn't exist)
Add the ability to preserve mark-up and stamps upon recreation of .dwf(x) without creating another file (perhaps closing the open file as part of the "Republish Sheets" (in Inventor, for instance) process would allow the user to maintain one file... one file name... ? the current process won't over-write the open file but the Republish commands are unavailable after closing the underlay mark-up.)
It would be helpful for all workspaces when displaying a detail record that the Item header and tabs and any available buttons (edit, save/cancel) remain fixed at the top of the screen when you have to scroll down to access or view the detail information on the record.
If a user imports a large number of new items (not BOM items) and realizes a mistake has been made. Now the user has to delete all these item through the UI, which is very painful. The user would like to perform a mass delete with a list of specific items.
It would be nice for the user to use the existing match functionality in the import tool, with the option to delete existing records on match.
