Set Up Participants Tables in 10/10.1

Set Up Participants Tables in 10/10.1

With the major UI changes from Windchill 9.1 to 10.0/10.1, there were some great improvments in UI capabilities. Unfortunately, there were also a few changes that IMHO are a step back from the capabilities in 9.1.

Set Up participants tables is one of them.

The worst case scenario at my company is the set up participants node for users in our Critical Design Review (CDR) Process. This node requires our Systems Engineer to select 5 users in seperate groups. In 9.1, this required 5 mouse clicks. (Actual user names blocked out)

In 10.0/10.1, this same activity requires 21 mouse clicks. Seletion of Set Up Participants tab and then 5 clicks per role. Example of first role with 6 clicks:

Each subsequent role assignment requires 5 additional clicks. If it must be a separate tab for Set Up Participants, that is not a big deal. But why can't that tab have a similar table layout to what was in 9.1.

Or perhaps as an alternative, there could be a user preference.  I think I have heard that this issue has been flip-flopped by PTC over the years.  Originally it was how it is in WC 10+.  Then it was changed to the matrix table of checkboxes.  And now it is changed back again.

If there is flip-flopping, then I guess many people feel strongly each way.  So a preference to allow chosing between both ways seems like a good idea.

But I guess maybe not too many people feel strongly for the 9.1 functionality since this idea only has 19 votes after I have voted for it.

In 9.1 we found a way to just uncheck everyone in the table and select only the users needed.  I would prefer to see a way to just select the participants needed in each role in 10.2.
