Hi, I have a group of users that I would like to review and add comments to a document/documents. How do other people manage reviewing Microsoft documents? I don't really want to promote any objects it is more of an activity prior to promoting to sanity check the document between a few users.
If you are going to have them in Windchill, are you also wanting to treat them differently than any other object? At first appearance, it seems they are just another object. I was thinking a Promotion Request or something like that?
Thanks for your input. I don't really want to do promotion request as the object should remain in a Draft state until all the feedback has been reviewed and added or rejected. From that point it would get promoted to an approved state.
We have attempted emailing a link to the file but this link fails for additional users once the first reviewer has made an update.
Its part of change so one can also tie a Design Review into a Change Request process or a Change Task process.
We are planning on using this Design and Peer Reviews, but does anyone know where to find them after they are created?
I don't see them on the Changes Tab of an Affected Object's Information Page. I can search for them, if I know there number.
I can see them in the Associated Process Objects of an ECR if I create one from the Design or Peer Review.
I can also see them in the folder context where they were created, if I limit the view to just Reviews.
This doesn't seem very helpful. I would think they would appear on any Affected Object's Information Page? Any ideas on locating these after completion?

@JHall We have a project to add that table in an upcoming release. We release it is a hassle to not have it on the objects page. I can share a report that can provide information.
I would really like to see this report. Also we might be able to leverage Subscription a to provide a little bit of tracking i.e. put the Peer/Design Review name in the Subscription.
Hi Jeff, did you ever flow in a place to see the Design Review or Peer Review on the object tabs? I see this chain is from 2018 and I am hoping it was implemented!
@sarahzim Great question - we are making updates to the related changes tables on the change tabs in Windchill 18.104.22.168 that will include showing related Design Reviews.
Great! Any workaround options for traceability to show what reviews are on what document objects?
Also, are there any good trainings on the utilization of this tool? We are looking to implement it in our system but we want to use it as designed. The video you had did not have any volume for me!
@JHall CPS only support bug fixes and security fixes. We do not backport features and as this is a large change to the UI is only applicable at a new release.
Understood. I am very interested in this. Could be part of a decision between going to Windchill 11.2 and 12.0
Did you say you would be posting a video?
I'm looking in WC 12.0.0 and don't seem to be seeing the Design Review tables you mention here. Could you point out where we might see them?
@JHall They appear in the Changes Table which was consolidated from 4 Tables in previous releases - it now shows Changes, Reviews, Problem Report, NC, CAPA, Deviation & Waiver in one table
Hi Jeff, i am finding that only Admins are able to create a Design or Peer Review. I have an Engineer that is trying to create one and is getting a message that says he doesn't have permission. Is there a specific role users need to be assigned to or a preference that needs to be set in order to allow Engineers to create a Review?
@ThomasB sounds like an ACL issue. If you have not modified any of the ACLs for your product or library I'd suggest opening a call with Tech Support about fixing the ACL.
