Watch the video to see all the exciting new capabilities such as simplified connection, container filtering, Windchill actions in the Right Mouse Button (RMB) context menu, detail view configuration, sorting and filtering, drag-n-drop updates, simple and indexed search and the new document comparison.

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

Pretty slick.  Are there any features in 10.1 that demo'd or is everything new for 10.2?

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

Joe, have you seen this other video posted for 10.0 http://communities.ptc.com/videos/1976 these features are also in 10.1.

If you have specific questions on if something you see in the 10.2 demo is in 10.1 or not then we run 10.1 so I can look it up for you.

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

How the accept Changes and review changes options inside word document feature in MS Word will work along with windchill (Which is showed at end of this video).

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

The option to not use the Checkout/Checkin prompts in Microsoft office is coming 10.1 M050 and the single step checkin with DTI is available at 10.1 M040. By single step checkin, I am refering to the bypassing of the Edit Attributes step which was introduced as a mandatory step in 10.0.

The rest of the video is all 10.2.

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

That video is from Windchill 10.0 and is a bit old now. There are some significant changes in 10.2 really opening up the capabilites of the Windows Explorer integration provided with DTI.

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

Accept/Reject changes is a built-in function of Microsoft Office. Support for all version of Word and Excel and PowerPoint at 2007. This interface is invoked when you run the Compare action. There are many scenarios to consider, but whether you need to update your local docuemtn with updates on the server or vice-versa, the comparison will let you run the visual check and also incorporate the changes in either direction for the document. Once modified and saved locally, the document can be checked back in as a new iteration.

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

Hi Scott are there any user guides available for DTI,

Re: Windchill 10.2 Desktop Integration

Hi, Chris. You can find the documentation for DTI in the Windchill 10.2 Help Center, beginning with this introductory topic:

http://www.ptc.com/cs/help/windchill_hc/wc102_hc/index.jspx?id=DTIAbout&action=show

If you prefer a printed copy, you can concatenate and print the topics, or create a PDF (if you have a printer with a PDF driver), by clicking the Publish Topic Collection icon (leftmost icon in the toolbar directly above the hierarchical list of content in the Content pane of the Help Center).

Regards,

Jane
