Allow Preview of the Attached File but Restrict Download

Status: Accepted
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎05-31-2013 10:52 AM - edited ‎05-31-2013 10:59 AM

Currently any attachment that is uploaded on PLM360 for a specific item can be downloaded from a user if the correct permission is granted.


If it was possible for a user to only have the preview functionality in the attachment tab permissible, that would be very beneficial in regards to security. This would allow users the access to view the attachment without having the threat of intellectual property being distributed.


Below is an image of the attachments tab. If the links circled below were removed or hidden, that would provide a suitable solution were the user wouldn’t be able to download the attachment.


Also if it were possible to view a larger preview of the attachment, that would enhance the user experience.

I've seen that the custom views created in the item viewer are not avaliable for other users.

Is there a way to do this?


As administrator I'd like to create some default views for all the users

Run Script by Push Button

Status: Implemented
by Distinguished Contributor obourne on ‎02-21-2013 01:55 PM

I'd like the ability to run a script by pushing abutton in the workspace item and not have to rely upon a state transition to do so. There are times where I want to create an item but use data from an existing item (the one I'm in at that time) and then link them together via the relationships tab. I want to do this without a state change (because state change would not be needed to simply link to items). I realize I can change behaviors to run a script upon creation that could do much of the same. It just makes sense to NOT to have to navigate away from where I'm at and then remeber what I want to link to. I'm all about automation.

This feature is finally being rolled out.  This will be in our upcoming release.

Radio Button display

Status: Comments Requested
by Contributor michael.timmis on ‎08-08-2013 12:42 AM

I have a simple picklist, 1 to 5, for a scoring record. However when you change from a default drop down box to radio button, they display as a vertical list of the options, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

It would be good to have the option to make the radio buttons list horizontal or vertical. Improving the amount of space a form takes up on screen.


Thanks in advance.

When I customize my Projects or Tasks list view pane, I'm able to select filter criteria.  However, I cannot use an "or" join- only "and".  Could that feature be added in the future?  As in the below screenshot, I want to show Projects / Tasks for which I am either the Owner OR Team member- I do not fall into both categories for all Projects / Tasks.





Another good feature would be to create more advanced grouping- such as combining two sets of "or" statements and joining them with an "and" statement.  For Example, to be able to filter on:


  Owner Contains (my name) AND

  DueDate is in the next 30 days


  Team Contains (my name)


That would provide me visibility into projects I'm a member of and those which I am responisible for in the next 30 days.

Allow a BULK IMPORT of Attachments

Status: Accepted
by Contributor Asingh5 on ‎11-05-2012 08:15 AM

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.

Tab one: current editor with ablity to add elements 

Tab two: Full html editor

Tab three: CSS editor

Tab four: Preview of edits not based on dmsID for layout views (color background etc...)

Project Management Improvements

Status: Accepted
by Mentor on ‎04-10-2014 03:26 PM



I feel there is a need for significant improvements to the project management tab. I have been using it for a while and I have a number of issues. Many of them have bee reported here already (e.g. ability to add columns). However there are some fundamental changes required to make this tab useful for managing anything other than simple projects. Some other issues are;


- it is essential that reports can be run on projects

- milestone dates must be able to be changed and modified through the project UI (regardless of whether they are linked tasks or not)

- milestones and milestone status should be visible in the gantt chart

- Selectable colours

- etc etc etc


I'm a huge advocate of PLM 360 but currently the PM tab is letting it down. I've used another web based project management system before that I think you guys should have a look at. Please PM me for the URL if you're interested.

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.
