Expanding Exporting Capabilities OOTB in Windchill (PDMLink and ProjectLink)

Expanding Exporting Capabilities OOTB in Windchill (PDMLink and ProjectLink)

Hello,

 

Today when we export the results of the search or on a Table to an Excel file (or other formats), it exports as a plain text. While this information is useful for the end users, it also limits to get to the information quickly from such a report.

 

Is it possible to add the Links to the WTObject (primary), example. If we are exporting a WTDocuments results, then, the Document Number would act as the Primary/unique object information in the export.

 

Is it possible to make this column with Links, so that if the user wants more details on this object, they can click this link directly from the report which can take them to the details page of this object?

 

We in our legacy application have Cognos, using the Cognos reports (Windchill Business Reporting), we can achieve this.

 

However, in the new Platform which is not integrated with Windchill Business Reporting, this is not possible. This Reporting Capability or Export capability should have the URL links to the objects directly OOTB whether or not Windchill is integrated with Windchill Business Reporting module.

An example is shown using Windchill Business Reporting for the PCE report that we use in the legacy information.

 

See the links on the PCE numbers?, we want the same for Exported results especially WTDocuments from ProjectLink projects.

 

Infact, we want it for all the search results (Both PDMLink and ProjectLink objects) and exports on objects done through Search including the Change Objects (PDM objects)
