When looking at the details tab of a Change Request...what is the annotations table for? I cannot find any info on it, nor can I add objects to it. We are running WC10.0 M040 and are currently testing & debugging the Change Management system.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You add Annotations in the Affected Data step (of Change Request) or Affected/Resulting step of the Change taks. Right click on the row and you should see an Edit Annotations action
You will then get a pop up allowing you to paste or search for annotations related to that Part or CAD Doc
You should then see your Annotations when done editing
you should be able to annotate with CreoView the Wtparts or CADdoc that you add in your Change Request.
And if I remember, you should be able to add also "BOM annotation" (draft BOM modification that you'are able to do in Product Structure Browser)
Have a look to online help
You should be able to use "visual" CreoView annotation or PSB BOM structural annotation.
But may be disable by default by a pref or profile. Cause I'm not able to add my annotation in the Change Request (well created in PSB and displayed in annotations tab of my WTPart)
to create a Structure annotation.
-open a WTPart BOM in PSB in Draft mode
-annotate the BOM (revise, add remove , change quantities)
-Save As and give a name to your annotation(not save, it will apply directly your annotation to the BOM)
The Windchill 10.0 M040 Help Center on ptc.com includes the following topic, Adding an Annotation, which introduces information about adding annotations to a change object:
This topic, in turn, links to the task topic that describes the procedure for adding an annotation via the annotations table:
I hope you find this helpful; please let me know if you have any feedback regarding the documentation.
I am having the same issue as Gregory, we cannot add an annotation to a CR. When I look at your link the first sentence says something about proper permissions must be set, but it doesn't tell you where to do this. I would search around my help, but we do not have the same help center (I am missing change help)....PTC's help (your links) is REALLY slow right now, will not even load the page.
Can you find out where we must set permissions to get this working?
I looked into this, and the developer I consulted indicated that the user attempting to add the annotations would need to have modify access for the change request and read access to the annotation.
doing the same test as Greg. As Org admin ... full access for create and update the Change request and Annotation.
OK for create the CR
OK for create the Annotation
But no action button to add the annotation in the CR.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to pursue this any further. Have you opened a case with PTC Technical Support? If not, you could do so and, if there is a bug causing this issue, they can file an SPR on your behalf. I'll watch the progress of the case as well, to ensure that we capture any new information for the documentation.
