Delete dialog

Hola,

when user trying to delete an object having 3 options:

  • Delete all iterations of each object included in the table
  • Delete all revisions of each object included in the table
  • Delete latest iterations of each object included in the table

I strongly recommend to rename these options like this:

  • Delete last revision of the object
  • Delete object from Windchill
  • Delete last iteration of the object

Most of the new users are completely lost when deleting objects (confused by meaning "all iterations=whole revision" and "all revisions=permanent delete"). After this rename would be more user friendly and clear what is going to happpen...

PS: Action is valid for every object included in the table which is obvious

The new sentences are more understandable to me.

I find it very helpful create a custom view to include the 'Version' and 'Modified By' columns as well - could be useful for PTC to add to the default view.

 

I made this cheat guide a while back to help me remember what the options did (we use numeric revision):

Also, Creo Drawing Formats get included by default. The default should be to exclude the Creo Drawing Formats so users don't have to manually exclude/remove the formats.

@lhoogeveen,

I highly suggest changing the collection options for 'Delete' to 'None'.  This will avoid bringing along anything except what you initially selected and prevent the collection of formats.
