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.
It would be a time saver to be able to configure a custom BOM view for the Flat view, Similar to the nested view. This could possibly be implemented with a checkbox for and Applies to Nested, Flat or Both.
We have set up custom BOM field that is used to trigger spawing of tasks to perform action on the item in the BOM Row, I.E. Generate an RFQ request where the item info is copied via script to the RFQ Record. The issue is that in the nested view the quantity shown is the unit quantity not the project rolled up quantity. To get that you need to switch to the flat view get the rolled up quantity and switch back to the nested view and enter the quantity to Request for Quote.
This is just one use case, but feel that functionality would make the BOM View for useful.
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.
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.
One very interesting feature from NetSuite is the Field Help. Every field within every form/record is clickable and triggers a small pop up with a short help outline or instructions on how to access/modify. This field help can be configured by the admin for custom fields.
It would be great to add the capability to specify help and instructions on PLM 360 fields and would even allow clients to implement their processes within their workspaces and forms.
If you could add the tabs to the workspace the same way you add a field, you would gain a ton of functionality. Even if you were still restricted to the same types of tabs currently available (grid, BOM, etc.), being able to add multiples of a tab and to add them only when necessary would be a great boost.
Our request is for the dashboard charts to be able to be set to be visible by default at log on. In our company it is crucial for users to be able to see their current KPIs, metrics etc easily. Having them visible at logon (and any time they revist their homepage), means that they see them dailywithout having to remember to look for them. We believe this will help to improve the company productivity, accuracy and timeliness in hitting weekly targets - all very important for us!
In truth, I rather assumed that having charts that were specific to the user login and being able to set them as always visible came by deault so it 's a bit disappointing to discover that functionality is not there yet! However, I'm sure Autodesk will be able to being this about in a future release!
The PLM 360 user interface is great. Its very clean and consistent between workspaces. However, some of our users complain that its not always easy to tell one workspace from another.
I think it would be a great idea to be able to add a soft colour theme to individual workspaces. Nothing too complicated. Light almost white shades would be enough. Perhaps one workspace could have a light blue interface coulour while another could be a light green. Perhaps all email notifications from individual workspaces could have the same colour shading?
