When analyzing a change impact on a part, we go to the "Where used" tab to see the parents on the part and analyzing the deeping of the impact.
But we can have important amount of usage (often more than 20, sometimes more than 50) whole important percentage are obsolete and does not need to be analyzed.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to display the LifeCycle State in the "Where used" tab ; this impacts significantly the efficiency of the analyse.
I added the State of an object in the Where Used table a long time ago. You have to create your own view.
I think it was possible in Windchill 9.0, but the customize is not available for this table in Windchill 10.0 nor 10.2.
I can confirm that this table in no more customizable in 10.2 from the UI
Are you talking about a WTPart part or a CAD part model? We don't use WTParts but I assume when you say the Where Used tab you are talking about the detail page of the object and the Where Used table?
If it's a CAD file and the Where Used table on the detail page then I'm not sure what you have because we are in 10.1 M050 and I can create my own view. But I suspect we might not be talking about the same area.
Don't forget but you can vote your own idea up if you want to.
I am talking about WTPart. Marc Tosin confirm this table is not more customizable from the UI.
Thank you, I just vote.
Your idea has the same end goal as the one below....which is to provide a method of filtering items that do not belong in the list.
What is also missing in this where used table, is the "i" button, to browse to the information page of the parent. now, you need to click on the "verion hyperlink", wich is very confusing for the user. Why isn't the "i" button present as in any other table? this would make more sence.
Fully agree - I know several users which had to be trained because they didn't recognise the link on the version
It is not consistent
Along with state, if Qty, Line number, pending change exists, checkout status can be added it will be great. These attributes are need for efficient mass change.
The Lifecycle state will be seen when using the Latest view for a Part Where Used Table. When using the All Revisions we do not show the State as it would create a huge row if there are many revisions. We are looking at redesigning the All Revisions view to make it easier to see the State attribute (and) others in a future release.
With Windchill 220.127.116.11 the Where Used Table will show the Lifecycle state when using the Latest View. (It was not practical for the All Versions view).
With Windchill 18.104.22.168 the Where Used table (Latest Version) shows the Lifecycle state of the Parts in the tree. Additionally for Change management collectors with Windchill 12.0 the Collector tables are now configurable and the Lifecycle state can be added to the columns that are displayed in the Collector.
