In Windchill 10.2 M030, we added the implicit refresh of workspace list page after any PDM action performed from CAD tool. The workspace object list page will be refreshed after the following PDM actions from CAD tool.
Save to Workspace
New CAD Document
Open from Windchill
Check out/Undo Check out
This implicit refresh is performed only when Workspace list page is active in the embedded browser in Workgroup Manager client.
This feature is supported by Creo and Workgroup Manager for CATIA V5, SolidWorks, NX, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD. It should be supported Creo Element Direct Drafting/Modeling as well !
