Windchill functions in Creo ribbon

Windchill functions in Creo ribbon

New users are almost universally confused by connecting to Windchill and when they get disconnected from Windchill. Windchill should get a tab in the ribbon. The tab itself could indicate when it is connected or disconnected. That would make it a lot easier to see the Windchill status and also collect the Windchill functions in Creo for a better interface.

Don't forget to vote on your own idea Joe Morton


I find it completely useless for buttons on a ribbon for products I don't have.

This is a problem today and with this idea, the problem would become worse.

In order for this to get an up vote from me, it would require removal of all extensions/products buttons not available to me as a user.


With Creo 4 you can edit the default ribbon so in this case if this was implemented you could remove it.

It should be set up such that you could still connect the first time through File > Manage Session > Server management.  Only after that first connection is when the Windchill tab would show up.
