After a long delay, here is the original post and some of the suggestions I got:
------ Original post -------------- Are there any "Best Practices" when you have a team of designers working concurrently on the same models and drawings? As an admin and not a user, I don't have any personal experience with this.
I know each person needs to set the CS status of files they want to modify, but are there other things you can/should do? Such as when someone changes a model and checks it in, how should others who have that model in a Workspace deal with it?
PTC told me they do not have such a document. Unfortunately, I cannot search the exploder archives from work (due to the exploder links being IP addresses, not named links). I will see if I can find anything from my home connection.
Any tips or pointers to existing info would be greatly appreciated.
------------- Replies --------------- Yes, locking the part is the best way I know to keep users from tripping over each other. I also recommend that they add "Compare Status" to their table configuration. When one user checks in a file, it lets the others who have it in their WS know that their version is not the latest, then they update the file to get the new version. They can avoid getting check in errors if they get in the habit of watching out for it.
