because of lack abilities in REST API it would be nice to execute script through REST API.



1. Administrator creates actions script.

2. User logins to PLM360 with REST API.

3. Code of integration tool sends command to PLM360. For example, "ExecuteScript". Additionally can be defined ItemID, WorkspaceID, etc as arguments of function.


Currently, the workaround I will use is execution of script on create or update events of item.


Best regards, Vladimir

Desktop folders

Status: Future Consideration
by Contributor jonas.andersson on ‎02-13-2013 03:45 AM

A function where a "desktop folder" can be added inorder to add/view documents from the desktop/finder directly into PLM360. The folder to be added should be connected to a certain workspace, where the user can chose which workspaces should be able to "share" information. 


The folder should be a direct connection through the username and password from the user, where permissions should be added depending on what role the user has.


Similar to dropbox, but with the added finess of PLM360.


Kind regards,

UI Improvement suggestions

Status: Future Consideration

1) Allow for workspace shortcuts in the unused area of the title bar. (marked in red)


2) Add 'X' for closing the item window (green)

  Right now I can chose to expand the window to full size or back to the split view. There is no simple way to get back to a full screen list view. (workspace only with no item in focus.)


3) Be better at remembering column widths.

It would be really neat to be able to create a field in Item Details (poss elsewhere too ?) that would autofill with comments from the workflow.  For example, when taking a delivery, the user clicks on the 'Accept delivery' transition and has to submit a comment as to where the delivered item is.  If this could be a field that was configurable to use a picklist AND then write that same info to a field of the same name in Item Details, it would mean the recipient only has to enter the data once, but it is then visible in Item Details should someone else be calling up the record to see where the item is currently located.


I know that the info in this comments box is used in a couple of places (? in the email triggered by the workflow transition , and in the Workflow tab (which I can't seem to see on this workspace), but at the moment it is not v visible when looking at the record on a separate occasion.  


In fact, if you could edit the workflow comments to be separate fields rather than just one box, that would expand this idea further.  It reduces the clicks a user has to make to fill in the required info while makingit more obvious which info IS required when moving something to the next state in the workflow.



Hope that makes sense,

There should be a way to additionally sort the project management schedule. First the start date and then have the option to add another field like the Task Number.

I have beening setting up views in a workspace. Some of the views are similar and would require a lot of the same field columns and filters. Can you please introduce a clone feature for views so taht these views could be set up quicker

My dashboard - Graph display

Status: Future Consideration
by markalawrence on ‎11-05-2013 12:16 AM

Please can you look into increasing the number of links that can be added to this area

There is a lot of wasted space that can be utilised here

Another 2 graphs each side of each row can be added, adding another 12 without changing the aspect of the dashboard.

At the moment this is just wasted space that i certainly can utilise

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.

My dashboard chart views

Status: Future Consideration
by Contributor RBocox on ‎01-17-2014 04:05 PM

In my dashboard, I have several charts that I have created and would like to see them as I have rotated or have performed slice movements.

The problem is that when I get the charts looking like I want them, they return to their normal 3D un-sliced and un-rotated views once closed. Therefore, when I want to view them at a future time, "like daily" I have to once again rotate & slice it to my liking and changing percentages or numbers etc.


Is there a way to save the view of the chart within my dashboard so that I don't have to go through this every time I open a chart?

I really like the ability to have sections in the Item Details tab collapsed by default.  Thank you for implementing this option for me. 


Similarly, I would like to have the ability to have the Owner and Change Summary section collapsed by default.  I like to have the Owner and Change Summary section on Item Details, but it can clutter the page.  It would be great if I can make this collapsed by default and then if you want to see the information, uncollapse it.


Thank you.
