How do I add additional "default" tasks to a change notice implementation plan?

Hey,

I have been asked to add a couple of tasks to the Change Notice Implementation Plan so that they are there for every new change notice...    I will have to admit I am not sure on how to proceed...   Anyone done this before have some advice?

If you are in 10.2, you can create Change Notice Templates with multiple change tasks templates and re-use the same when you create new change notices.

Binesh,

Unfortunately we are still on Windchill 10.1 m040

Marc,

The CS - https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS168927  tells us that there could not be multiple default Change Tasks/

Given that Templates are available in 10.2 you will want to seriously consider before implementing alternate means of doing this.  It does solve your immediate need but is addressed more cleanly at a future to you version.

One way that comes to mind is that you could add an expression robot to the Change Notice Workflow to add these other default/standard Change Tasks.

if it were me, I'd be negotiating with the stakeholders to wait until v10.2.  You may be able to use the need as leverage to upgrade sooner (there is lot's of other good stuff as well)

Re: How do I add additional "default" tasks to a change notice implementation plan?

I agree with Keir here.  While you could just isolate the code that auto-creates the change task information and find a way to repeat it as necessary per applicable change notice, if you are eventually going to 10.2 then that implementation becomes an item that would just have to be removed as part of the upgrade process anyway, since it would no longer be necessary and possibly interfere with the 10.2 workflow too.

Regardless, I'm happy to help if you are interested in looking into either option further (code solution or upgrade).

Well, I think we will just wait for a Windchill 10.2 upgrade.
