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