More robust editor for Advance Print View

Status: Accepted
by Product Support on ‎04-17-2014 09:53 AM

It would be great and useful to have a more robust Advance Print view edtior, that included Tabs for full html editing, along with an attached CSS editor.

 

Example:

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...)

We need the ability to import and export javascripts (condition, validation, library etc.) directly from a PLM tenant instead of copying it manually into a notepad.

 

This is a good feature and will be helpful in deploying codes in multiple environments.

 

Also a revision control (software configuration management) on these javascript will be a great addition.

 

Thanks,

 

Deepak

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.

Status: Implemented

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

I feel we need a lookup function in the scripting functions

 

The basic Idea would be to duplicate the current function for linked picklists and leverage the benifits of derived fields and filtered picklists.

 

The script function would simply return a dmsid's or null and be able to search a specified workspace for records that match specified field/values. The return could be an array of the dmsid that could be utilized to then load the found dmsid for use in scripting access to that record for adding or extracting information.

 

Example:

 

Workspace A = tasks with two fields to identify that record: Project# (Linked Picklist) and Task ID, A third field Task Type, UDP of values (type a, type b etc.)

 

On Workspace B you have two filtered picklists based on Workspace A (you could use Pre-Filter on the Picklist to restrict by Type).

 

Use the values selected in the filtered picklist fields in a script lookup function that returns all matching dmsID from WS-A.

 

Using looping & load item you can then process those id's to add or extract info.

 

There have been several support forum discussions on this subject and thought it needed to be added to the Idea Station. Help this along by giving Kudos.

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,

Jonas

Scripting Access to Relationships Tab

Status: Implemented
by pmaxted1 ‎08-02-2012 12:23 PM - edited ‎08-02-2012 12:25 PM

It is often both difficult and tedious to manually create relationships between different workspace items (as the picture below illustrates). It would save a lot of time to be able to write scripts to automatically add relationships between workspace items. 

 

Even tying the ability to add relationships into the function createItem('WS_WORKSPACE_ID') would be a huge time saver.

​ Default filters in a picklist

Status: Implemented
by cruzj on ‎06-05-2013 10:43 AM
We would like to be able to narrow down a linked picklist for a certain criteria.

Example: We use Product ID as a unique identifier for products. In other workflows, we will link a picklist of Product IDs to a form so that we can assign more attributes to the product. Product ID  can have a status of "Assigned," "Orderable" or "Retired." We would like to pre-filter a picklist of products to show only those that are in status "Assigned" but not "Orderable" state. There is no current client-side scripting available today.

Only possible by "chaining" workspaces. Create a new picklist when the item changes status, e.g., when a Product ID is first released, spawn record in another workspace with the narrowed-down population of "Assigned." .

Ability to set "Quantity" in Add Items to Bill of Materials to default to 1. We use the BOM function to create hierarchies in our data.

Is there a way to set the "Add Items to Bill of Materials" to autofill as "1" for Quantity?

 

It may not be possible since it is a required field.

Hi,

 

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

 

Algorithm:

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
