Please fix the major gaps in drag and drop Windchill Document creation:
See video below for explanation.
The video was of Windchill 11.0 M030 but this also applies to 10.2 M030 and 11.1 M020 according to CS213307. This was first reported in July 2015 (4 years and counting!) but PTC pulled their typical "works to specification" shenanigans.
I vote your idea on trust because the video is not yet visible, as it is waiting for approval.
@Marco_Tosin The video is there now.
Thank you for presenting the problem so cleanly. The implementation of this very promising and long asked for drag and drop feature is horrifying.
This is a fix we have been wanting for years. Hope to see one soon!
I am surprised to see this does not have more votes. I am also surprised to see that PTC has not moved forward with drag-n-drop. The current state was phase one and the two methods you showed were a compromise to get the capability implemented. There is a preference for the default type of document to create, but that's a tedious work around to the inability to choose the document type on the drop action.
Sad to admit, I leave the site preference for default document at Document, which is not available to users. If someone does try drag-n-drop, they'll get an error message they do not have permission to create a Document. Its disappointing to keep drag-n-drop disabled like this, but w/o a way to enter required attributes or choose a type, this feature is not ready for prime time.
I second this request. Looking forward to a fix. Thanks!
