Document Structure Tab has no export/report option

Document Structure Tab has no export/report option

When viewing the Document Structure Tab, on a document object, there is no option to export/report.  This option, however, is available under the Structure Tab of an object that is a part or assembly.

My suggestion is to add this feature so that the Document Structure can be utilized the same way a Part/Assembly Structure is utilized.  Having the ability for users to print/export/report the document (as if in a BOM structure) is convienent when multiple documents may be effected by changes made to parent documents, as an example, etc.

Yes, I totally agree. The Export option would be very useful since it supports a wide range of output formats. The Reports option is a bit different since it would require some default reports created. Kathleen Crombleholme‌ do you have any recommendations for the types of document reports you'd like to see here? Would they be the same as the Reports offered by the Part Structure Browser?

Generally speaking, these two toolbars should be in-sync for all common actions and not having this new Reports group on the Document Structure Browser is an oversight. Please add your votes if you'd like to see this in a future release of Windchill.

For those of you who have not seen the difference, the Document Structure Browser toolbar looks like this.

While the Product Structure Browser toolbar looks like this.

Notice the Reports group above. It contains a Reports and Export option the Document Structure Browser does not have.

 This will be a useful feature for us also. Currently, there is no Copy/Paste even working for this feature in 11.0 for the Uses table. There is no way a user can take the Uses table in the Structure for the Document and be able to export or have an excel report for this information.
