Ability to customise the Products Listing page

Ability to customise the Products Listing page

We have a customer who would like to be able to see a 'Project Number' column when viewing his list of Products.

Each of his Products is assigned a Project Number (which is manually inputted). We can add a Global Attribute and amend the Product Template so that the Project Number field is available when creating a new Product, but there is no way of displaying this extra information on the Products Listing page.

This is not the first time we have encountered an issue like this - it would be good to be able to amend the Product Listing view to show additional columns.

Is this something that has been considered for a future release of Windchill ?

Looking at this very subject at the moment prior to our upgrade to 10.1. In our current 9.1 system we have various soft attributes shown in the product list page.

We managed this quite simply in 9.1with a simple tweak to a jsp page but looks quite a bit more complex in 10.1, requiring new builders to be written etc.

Is this something you can address by simply creating a new table view for the Projects table? This is an OOTB capability allowing you to customize the column display and sorting along with object filtering. Seems like this one is already taken care of at 10.1?

Hi Scott, there is no Customize option for the table view of the Products, its only available if you drill down into a product

you need to make a simple customisation (PTC helped us with this), to extend the table builder class from the product list tabel to make it customisable. You can then create a new table view. We have done just that so that we can show extra attributes such as client, and CAD system.

My apologies. I assumed the Project Table was the same as the Product and Library Tables. As you pointed out, there is no Customize option for the PDM containers. As Simon pointed out, this can be added via customization, but should be consistent throughout Windchill. Since this can be accomplished via customization, I will look into this and see what can be done to have it implemented as part of the product.
