How to copy/link CAD data to PDMLink folders from workspace?

Hi Fellow Windchillers,

Have created a workspace and checkedin data lies in the workspace. While checkin was able to specify the PDM Link folder. There is a link to the CAD data both in the folders and in the workspace. But now I want to link or copy the CAD data from the workspace to the PDMLink folders. Please let me know how this can be done.

Windchill 8.0 M030 and Wildfire 3.0

Thanks,

Amol

Hi Amol,

Could you please explain a bit more on the use case? Are you talking about copying files from Workspace to Commonspace?

Thanks

Hi Binesh,

All the ProE data is checked in and lies in commonspace. The data is visible in workspace but I want it to be visible in the folders also. Hope this is helpful!

Thanks,

Amol

Amol,

Is your commonspace folder view set to display CAD Documents? It's been a while since I've worked with an 8.0 instance. Can you provide a screenshot of what your commonspace looks like?

Hi Lori,

Have attached two images- one displaying a checked in drawing in ProE workspace and the other the same drawing being visible in folders.  The same information is visible using File>Open and browsing to workspace and folders. THis is achieved by specifying the folder during the checkin steps.  My question is- how to achieve this display at both places if the folder is not specified at the time of checkin?

Hi Amol,

I am not sure if i understood your question correctly. The drawings that you see in Workspace is checkedin to Windchill and while checking in you don't want to explicitly specify target folder location? (is this your question)

In that case you have to modify your workspace configuration and specify the checkin location. But not sure if it exist in 8.0 as i started my hands on with WC9.1

I'm not sure I understand the question either. However, I believe that by default, if no location is specified upon check-in then the files will go into the root folder of the container where they are checked in (i.e. /Default).
