Has anyone turned on the Preference for "Automatic Revise Mode"?

Hey,

We are considering turning on the Windchill preference, "Automatic Revise Mode" to help us with our state based versioning scheme transition from pre-release states to released.   I was wondering if anyone has done this and what best practices you could share.

As I understand it there are several things that need to be changed for this to work:

  1. Set Preference: Automatic Revise Mode
  2. Verify that you are using the latest Promotion Request workflow.
  3. Update lifecycle.
    1. Dedicated state for the automatic revision
    2. Updated transitions for other states if needed.
    3. Additional Revise transition to Released state from the dedicated state.
  4. Create or update ACL to prevent ad hoc revision in dedicated state.
