We are requesting a new setting that can be used by sites to turn the Reference Designator Change Confirmation ON or OFF

We were asked to submit this as an enhancement in case C11572526.

"When Reference Designators are added or removed from a part, this changes the quauntity of the of the used part. In previous releases, there used to be a confirmation window that would bring this to attention and have the user acknowledge the change. In 10.1 this is not case. The change is quietly persisted. We are requesting a new configurable setting that can be used by sites to turn the Confirmation ON or OFF depending on their practices"

We don't fully agree that this should be an enhancement because PTC Help document still says there should be a confirmation window: http://www.ptc.com/cs/help/windchill_hc/wc101_hc/index.jspx?id=ExpMPM_OccurrenceAddEdit&action=show

Text from that help page, as of 03/14/2014 :

Adding or Editing Occurrences

To add or edit a reference designator for an occurrence of a part, use the following procedure:

  1. Select the Uses tab in the right pane.
  2. Enter a value in the Reference Designator column.Use BOM view to edit the reference designator as a range. If the quantity of the part is increased or decreased as a result of editing the range, a window appears asking if you want to adjust the quantity of the part accordingly.orUse occurrence view to edit each individual reference designator

The new designator appears in the table.
