I would be extremely benefitial if I could run a script automatically immediatley after an item has been created. It could be used to automatically create relationships after a user has created an item.
We have an action script running to sort out the row order of a workspace grid. However, the script will only run when we edit the Item details. This method of sorting the grid rows is a little tedious. It would be great if the script would run by simply editing the grid.
It is highly tedious and annoying to attach a pdf or a dwg file to a list of items in a workspace. Having the ability to bulk upload attachments to specific items in a workspace would be ideal for mass drawing updates or file updates.
One solution would be importing a zip file of the attaching files and an excel file that would have the item descriptor in one column and the corresponding file name in the other column.
At this time, all views are by individual. There is not a way to globally configure a view globally. Item Views should be able to be modified for an entire team from the system admin rather than from case to case basis.
Actually to really make a date format clear for global teams, we should have the option to pick a date format such as:
dd/mmm/yyyy but with letters for the month eg. 23/MAR/2013. This will really avoid any confusion with date for European and American people working on the same project.
Is this something that PLM360 could support in the future?
Currently the tool is not offering the possibility to automatically perform an action on a specific time.
In our product launch management, we need to have an e-mail sent on the release of the product but we don't want to manually do it or change a workflow to a status which will then trigger the e-mail notification.
We will also need the tool, based on a calculated dates to kick of some workflows and this is not something we can actually do in PLM360.
Is Time based actions something that PLM360 will offer soon? This is a major concern for the implementation of PLM360 within our processes and could prevent some parts of our process to be moved over.
Based on our current usage of PLM360, the overall time management should be something more explored in next updates of the product
When using the import tool, performing a bulk import of values into a "single selection" linking picklist is possible. Unfortunately I cannot select a "Multiple Selection" linking picklist it in my import to do the same thing.
This feature is very important for our company since it would allow us to show our linked product items in one specific field, as opposed to having multiple "single selection picklists"--which doesn’t make a clean visual.
The data I have is in a excel format. With over thousands of entries, having the import tool to bulk import the linking picklist values in the multiple selection picklists would allow me to provide my tenant with the information it needs efficiently and visually appealing.
I would really love some improvements from the advanced print view
1. I need a way of having global control over all print views. eg, if I have a company footer then I want to change It once and apply to all print views however this is just an example and It would be useful for a lot more then that.
2. I have created the print view I want in HTML and I have It looking the way I need It however It looks horrible when I put It into PLM 360, It appears that the HTML code used by PLM is very old and is not able to read CSS at all, even if It is embedded into the html code itself.
I really need this to be resolved, currently I am not able to create anything near professional enough to give to a client.
Attached is a screen shot of the report straight in Chrome, the other is what It looks like coming out of PLM. It will not take you long to work out which one is out of PLM.
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.
