As admin, how to access a user's workspace, view contents and perform actions on them?

All,

As Org / Site admin or Product Manager, how to got to some other user's workspace, view contents and perform actions on them?

From Workspace tab - Other user's workspace, we can get list of workspaces of a user, but the only action available at that point is to Delete.

It becomes essential to view the contents of a user's workspace and perform appropriate actions (undo check-out or check-in, etc.,) especially if the user is not availbale for the moment (may be on vacation or left the organization or whatever) to keep the work moving.

We are on 9.1 M060.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Prabhakaran V.

Hello,

The 9.1 version of the Windchill Business Administrator's Guide provides the following information about ways in which an organization administrator can undo the checkout of objects by a user. Does this answer your question?

If a user in your organization has an object checked out, you can undo the

checkout, reverting to the last modified version or iteration of the object. This is

useful in situations where the user who had the object checked out has left the

company, or if they are out of the office when the checked out object is needed.

If you already know the object or objects for which you want to undo the checkout,

you can perform the undo checkout action on the object from the Folders page of

the organization, from the Folders page of a product, library, project, or program

within your organization, or from the information page for the checked out object.

You can also find objects checked out by a particular user, by searching using the

Checked Out By criteria on the Advanced Search page, then performing the undo

checkout action for the object from the Search Results table.

An organization administrator can also delete an individual user’s workspace. For

more information, see the Using Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire With Windchill guide.

Thanks,

Jane

One way is to edit the users password as an admin, and log in as the user...
