Windchill 10.1 integration of system alert banner

Windchill 10.1 integration of system alert banner

With the change of layout introduced in Windchill 10, the approach recommended (in customizers guide and Help Center) for creating an alert banner can obscure features that the users need to react to the alert being given. With 9.1 the banner went at the top of the page, and other features squashed down to make room for it. This is no longer the case in Windchill 10.1. Suggest integration of the banner to be consistent with the other elements on the page.

We ran into this same issue during our WC10 testing and so we chose not to use this style of notificaiton. Instead we have been using the Messaging Banner functionality to display our impending system shutdown messages. In this way a large message can be displayed without affecting the display of other screen elements.

The downside (or upside depending on your wishes) of this approach is that the banner is obviously not always visible and it will not pop up on every screen change (just on reload or major screen change).

I would like to see this functionality enhanced as an integrated messaging alert system.

The banner content should be managed in the database. To be able to display large message, a scrolling should be possible by default.
