I am using wc10 and i still see its the same way.
In promotion request while selecting participants, i can not expand on Specific role or group.
With the help of www.najanaja.com, we recreated the setup participants to have the same look and feel of team administrator table but only show the participants in an activity. See attached document. I've been asking this since Windchill 6.2.6 and 7. Attached is the use case for the functionality.
You would want a discrete set from a role.Currently, OOTB workflow cannot map a role in an activity toa context team role in a resource pool. Roles are not allowed to be selected only default teams and context team. The workaround for a defined team per role doesn’t work because you can only have one OIR team for change notice.
Similar to this attached issue, we created a call sometime back C07682334, where we were demonstrated this new interface does exist in Windchill 10 to where it “looks like the team administration table” but only for mapping the roles/members of the assignment tasks. I do believe this is a very common requirement. We’ve been asking for this since Windchill 6.2.6 and 7. There have been past related SPRs (i.e. 1586957). SPR1586957 had nothing really to do with the FIND. The SPR was to have PTC provide a working useable UI for setup Participants. The reason because the current 9.0 and 9.1 setup participant UI is horrible if you have a huge team roles to map to workflow roles.
Most people populate the STANDARDIZE CONTEXT TEAM roles to groups of people who fit that role. Only people who fit to that role can be selected as the resource pool per workflow role. This is the current functionality of Workflow Resource pool. The problem is that the OIR only allows one “team” OR the resource pool cannot map to a context team role.
Based on the Change notice type and complexity, you can have different sets of roles for approvals and you may have different task in series for graduated approval.
