Action Item type should be configurable through Type Manager

Action Item type should be configurable through Type Manager

Action Item type cannot be configured through Type Manager to add custom attributes. All these attributes are hard-coded through JSP file. If Action Item is available under Type & Attribute Management then it should be configurable to add custom fields. 

Even if system allows to create soft attribute, it cannot be added in Create/Edit layouts. I strongly recommend to add basic features on Action Item type like update Create/Edit layouts, Sub typing etc like other types.

100% agree. This issue was identified many releases ago but not addressed by PTC yet. I understand it is a small issue compated to other requests, but its odd to have some objects as managed types and some not as managed types. The goal here is consistency. Customers shoudl be able to configure and manage Action Items the same way they would any other object in Windchill.

 

This idea is a duplicate to https://community.ptc.com/t5/Windchill-Ideas/Allow-creation-of-SubType-of-Action-Item-soft-type/idc-... so please vote the other idea too!
