Asset Parameter real names + groups

Status: Gathering Support
by Advocate mk92 on ‎07-26-2016 11:16 PM

In our assets we use our model variables they are a short form of the real names of our Parameters. We need them for the BOM we export directly from the FDS. So we aren't able to use the full name of our Parameters in the assets.

 

For our sales team or teams who don't use these variables every day its kind of hard to find the right parameters.

 

So it would be pretty helpful to use the Comment Function in the Parameter Window to add the real name.

 

In the FDS they could be visible like in Auto CAD. When you hover over the Parameter Name with the mouse cursor a small popup shows which contains:

 

Short Name

Long Name or Maybe a short description

 

Small thing but very useful!

 

In addition to this it would be nice to have the ability to deliver well sorted Parameter Lists to our users.
