It would be really helpful if I could see the milestones of the current item on its project management tab. I can see all the subtasks and expand them out to see them on the timeline but in order to see the milestones of the current item I have to switch to the milestone tab. I would like to maybe see the milestones across the top of the timeline as a visual check that all my dates align.

The idea is to have some reserved keywords to simplify creation of Workspace’s Views (ie to have a possibility to create dynamic views).

 

List of suggested keywords:

  • Me – current user account;
  • Today – current date, short format (e.g.: 11/18/2014);
  • Now – current date, long format (11/18/2014 10:25:00);

 

For example: Create a View with items where Project Supervisor is current user account (create a filter: Project Supervisor Is {me}). See attach "Reserved keys.png".

when editing a matrix within "workspace layout", it would be really usefull and definitly time savings to be able to re-arrange the order of the column (moving all its rows at the same time ....

 

When you just forgot on column, you have to move every single cell to make it happen.

 

Thanks in advance to consider this.

Parallel Workflow

Status: Future Consideration
by tomtemp on ‎11-18-2014 02:05 PM

 

In our manufactruing process, we typically will work on a project with several states active at one time. For example, while we are completing engineering assembly drawings, we will be fabricating components for our assemblies in metal fab, wood fab, etc. We may also be painting some materials prior to final assmbly. Therefore our workflow is not linear. We have found a workaround with Trung's help, however we cannot see anything visual that represents the status of a project.

 

It seems like this would be ehlpful for any manufacturing company.

 

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Tomtemp,

 

After our discussion, I am happy to be able to provide you with a workaround for business case.

 

I appreciate you taking the time to write and submit your idea.

 

Currently our workflow model is set to linear.  We use a series condition and validation scripts to open or closed workflow transition based ont the input in Item Details Field.

 

I will review your request and I will add this request to our future enhancement list.

 

thank you,

The idea (see attach) is to select a value from a list of workspace’s data in "edit at runtime" reports fields.

Are there any plans to be able to choose the text colour when creating a new field or edit a field

I would just like to make some values stand out in a list of many values

As Martin stated, we don't have any plans to add to our current roadmap.  However, I will add this to our future enhancement list.

Similar to the validator for fields in item details, it would be nice to have a minimum length for workflow comments.  It's great to have the 'comments required' option, but the ability to have a more complex regex.

App Removal Mechanism

Status: Future Consideration
by spiazza78 on ‎08-26-2014 04:55 AM

hello,

 

would be really helpfulll to have a mechanism to remove an installed app. This would remove all workspaces, scripts and roles created when installing it.

 

Best regards

Status: Future Consideration

Hi Spiazz78,

 

I can see the need to remove an installed app.  Currently if you install an app you will have to manually delete everything which can be time consuming.  We will add this to our future enhancement list.

 

Please continue to submit your ideas.

 

Thank you,

Is there a chance that the same ability to move multiple dates out at the same time that is found in the milestones tab, can be replicated in the Project Management tab? With the complex way we are using PLM360 to support project management we cannot utilize the milestones tab.

 

That said we really like the ability to move multiple task dates out without having to change them one by one.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks!

Hi dnaugle,

 

We appreciate you taking the time to submit this idea.

 

To clarify:

 

1.  You want the ability to shift the dates on the Project Management Tab.

2.  By shifting the end date, how would you compensate for the shifting of the Milestone.

       a) Do we keep the milestones the same but only shift the end date

       b) Do we need to recalculate the Milestones to compensate for the date changes

3. In MS Project when you shift the dates, it will also shift the predecessors. 

      a) Do you want that same functionality?

 

Please provide more details and clarify some questions.

 

We will take it into consideration, and we will add to our future enhancement list.

 

thank you,

After having become more familar with PLM it appears to me that the BOM handling across workspaces are lacking.

 

I like the idea of having multiple workspaces because it allows me to collect different information for different types of items. 

But I have come to the conclusion that this is simply not viable at this point, because:

 

1) PLM does not support BOM import when it references items in other workspaces. (It is possible manually)

 

2) Even if I did add them all manually, I cannot create a BOM view that includes my custom fields from other workspaces because the BOM view can only see the Descriptor field from other workspaces.

 

The result of this is that I have to put everything in a common workspace have have to clutter up the item details with a lot of fields that does not apply.

 

Proposed improvement

1) Include cross-workspace BOM import

 

2) More configurale BOM view, where I can specify the FIELDNAME (could be free text) for each column. If the FIELDNAME does not exist for a specific item/WS on the BOM, just leave it blank. For example: If I am referencing 3 different workspaces in a BOM and 2 of them has a field called PART_NUMBER, I would expect the value to be inserted if available, otherwise left blank/null.
