In the Windchill PDMlink Discussions being able to add people with @NAME callouts would trigger WC to send an email to that user with the discussion content and link and ablity to respond. See GrabCAD
Great idea. This form of one-to-one notification in a group discusion or forum is quite common these days. People are using this syntax in Twitter, Facebook and many other social media applications every day.
The downside is that Windchill Discussions are not designed for Web 2.0 social communication like many of today's popular tools. I'm all for this enhancement, but would like to see it included in a broader Web 2.0 overhaul of the Windchill Discusssion capabilities.
Ooooooo, I don't know if you want to open that box of worms, Scott...
Next thing you know people will be asking for:
Maybe we could start a Kickstarter campaign to get this stuff going....
In fact, maybe the whole product enhancement / Product Idea thing could follow the Kickstarter model, and have the customers pledge monetary support for a particular enhancement, once it reaches the goal it gets kicked off.
Oh, wait, what is it I pay maintenance for again?
PTC has to overhaul the complete PDMLink discussion platform! This feature is still WEB0 (Zero ;-).
