It should be possible to configure Workspace toolbar

It should be possible to configure Workspace toolbar

like written in CS15567 it is not possible to edit the workspace toolbar so it is not possible to hide buttons users should not use. Of course I can controll by setting rights that users are not able to start f.e. a change task but the button is there and causes then a oneway Error. I want to reduce back clicks on the system so I think hiding the button would be the smarter way to do that.

Agree. We do not allow users to create wtPart items in a Product or Library and have removed the action (configure actions per role) so the users do not get an error. We would like to do the same for workspaces.

General customization of this toolbar should be allowed by the customer.  Previous examples revolve around hiding or removing actions that users are not able to do however our need is different.  

 

We want to add buttons for our own custom apps and systems developed with Windchill JWS and REST APIs.  For example we have a packager for customer prints, and allowing an Engineer to send one off items from the workspace directly to this system without leaving their workspace would save several minutes per package.  Some days this leads up to hours of potential saved time but we can't do this because the toolbar is not customizable.

 

Before a PTC rep comes in here giving me a different process to do the same thing I need to emphasize that PTC's solutions are insufficient for what we need from our packager (this has been verified with our vendors numerous times as we really do try our hardest to utilize OOTB technology) we are a true multi CAD company and most of the OOTB solutions PTC provides do not handle Autodesk or Catia properly.  Our customization is the only way to do what we are doing and being unable to give QoL changes to the workspace toolbar really is disheartening.
