Windchill - Improved Hover Tooltips and Links to Help Documentation

Windchill - Improved Hover Tooltips and Links to Help Documentation

Please make Windchill more intuitive by adding helpful hover tooltips (brief but helpful descriptions when users hover their mouse) and links to related help documentation.

Examples:

  • Described by Documents (version specific) vs Reference Documents (version independent). Providing a helpful tooltip where the average person could understand the difference and a link to the related help documentation. Or (Version Specific) and (Version Independent) could be included in the names in Windchill.
  • Variance vs Deviation vs Waiver. The New Variance menu is confusing whether users should pick Deviation or Waiver. Providing a helpful tooltip where the average person could understand the difference and link to help documentation.
  • New Variance, Problem Report, Change Request, Change Notice, etc. Providing a brief hover tooltip description here would be helpful for users.
  • Under Product context > Teams, the out of the box descriptions for Roles/Members are absolute garbage and provide no help. Providing a better description and a link to the related help documentation would be extremely helpful - especially for the Roles related to Variances, Problem Reports, Change Request, and Change Notices. This help page helped me figure the roles.

An extension of this idea would be letting companies create custom tool tips or help documentation so companies could list the types of documents users are expected to put in Described By or Reference Documents. Anything to help users out makes a big difference.
