Handle license borrow and return from a UI

Handle license borrow and return from a UI

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
Space, MCAD Administrator, Engineers


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
Creo 8.050

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
Borrowing licenses is done by a separate utility, and requires all needed licenses be brought into that initial session (some by convoluted means) in order to have them borrowed.  They are returned early by a command line operation, assuming you know what all the internal feature names are.  How about a UI built in to Creo that allows specific selection of licenses to borrow and return?

4. What is the use case for your organization?
Borrowing licenses lets you work offline

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
It would make it a lot easier to manage, but it would also make Creo look a little less backward.
