Windchill only allows the Email Document action for a singe document. There is also the need to send multiple documents. Please enable this functionality.
I have been following the discussion and of course I vote up
Hopefully PTC will not wait for hundres of votes before considering.
I would think PTC could leverage the clipboard functionality to achieve this. Add the stuff to the clipboard, open the clipboard manager, click on an email icon an whoop-ti-doo, there you go.
From an implementation viewpoint, what is the scope of this request? Is it sending email for multiple documents selected in the folder browser? For instance, check mark a bunch of docs in the browser interface and then pick Email Document from the Actions menu?
If so, how would you like to deal with attachments? Right now the Email Document action fetches the associated attachments for you. Would you still want it to do this? If so, how would the attachments be presented? One big list or would you like to know which attachments come from which document to determine whether or not you want to include them?
What if the documents are in different folders? Say from a search results table.
That seems to piggy-back on Marc's comment about including this capability in the Clipboard. It would be equally as nice in the search results table too. I took the liberties of updating the Idea to include all three locations.
Thank you for updating the idea.

I would like to know which attachments comes from which document. From my point of view it would be enough to decide if the mail should contain attachments (all of them) or none.
