Possibility to modify the "Subject of Assignment" of a task to add custom information in Windchill PDMLink

Possibility to modify the "Subject of Assignment" of a task to add custom information in Windchill PDMLink

We would like to include information about at least one object from the objects list in the task.

This will help the users that are assigned to the task to identify a task from avaiable tasks list@.

There is a fairly standard approach to this that many people have in place.  For each workflow Template Activity, one adds code to the Start transition which changes the Name of the resulting Task.  Generally people insert the PBO Name or some part of it as a prefix to the Task name.  Result - User may have 20 of the same Task (e.g. Approve Change Request) but each has as it's prefix the Number of the Change Request.  Very helpful. Would be nice if this was available as a standard part of PTC's Help on Workflow template development.

Thanks for the tip Mike. We are reading the part numbers of objects and setting it as task description. With this users are able to quickly get to a task using part numbers they know. Although I am not sure of the size of the description variable.
