Allow Admins to Display Object Descriptions to Users

Allow Admins to Display Object Descriptions to Users

Using the Type and Attribute Manager, it's possible for admins to give descriptions to Windchill Objects and even give descriptions to specific user pages like New/Edit Object. However, these do not get displayed to the user. Please allow the 'Object Descriptions' to get displayed in the various New Object, Edit Object, etc. menus so admins can give users specific descriptions/instructions for objects and link to URLs for forms, help documents, etc.

 

Couple comments:

  • This will make it much easier for admins to help users with object specific help.
  • The ability to use URLs is important so admins can link to external forms and help documents. Make it easy to create URL links. Rich text formatting like bold text would be helpful.
  • This could apply to virtually any object type and sub type: Documents, Change Notice, Promotion Requests, Change Request, Problem Report, etc.
  • PTC could provide out of the box 'descriptions', instructions, and links to help menus that would help companies get going easier with various types of objects. Then companies could customize as needed.
