In many occassions, users would request us, admins, to change the state from one to another due to various valid reasons. And we do set the state on WTParts or CAD Objects and in our case, there would be a valid ECO to do this operation.
The challenge here is that the information for this set state operation like details on the request, the ECO on which this state change had been done are not being captured anywhere in the system. This is due to the behaviour that unlike check-in of objects where there is a possibility to provide comments, no provision is available for us to enter any comment while doing a Set State. In practical cases, it had ended up for us not being able to get down to the exact reason for which this operation had been done.
Proposal is to make it possible to give comments while doing a Set State operation on Windchill objects.
