Is it possible to programatically (in an addin) create a notification for an user when a certain file has been checked out? I could not find any interfaces to add automatic notifications.

I have set up convert task while releasing my drawing files. For one drawing file it takes one minute to convert file to PDF, if I have to release batch of files then how can I speed up the task execution? Are you using the exact same task?

Our QA personnel don't have SolidWorks, only eDrawings installed. We want to give them the ability to open previous versions of the DRW files so they can see previous rev levels. Is it possible to do the above "History > Get" command with eDrawings and if so, what permissions would a person need to get the older versions of a file?

Just curious if there's anyone out there in PDM land who's gone all out on the number of file extensions for a data card. I have a customer who has a data set that has over 70 file extensions currently that we want to attach to a a data card (I know there will be more). Luckily the card will have just a few variables. I always recommend against doing this with my customers, but this time it seems needed unless I can find an alternative or they can work with the parent folder data card for search

inserting parts/assemblies into vault (pdm standard) Right, I have a vault set up, I am a user with access to the vault, I have some data cards and a workflow and all that (I'll soon find out how badly I've done that bit, but I'm not working with any real data and I can easily start again from scratch with more understanding )

I have state called " BD & Sales" from which I am approving a file which I want to be automatically transferred to states "Phase-II Concept design" and "Program Manager". Users in both the states are different. So will they be able to see the file in their respective states?Deepak Gupta

Multiline variable I have a multiline variable that is entered in the file card as an edit box. This is transferred to the drawing and creates a multiline custom property in a general table that I am using as a revision table.

I have a variable where all the data needs to be converted to upper case. There are about 40,000 instances of the variable in the vault. I don't care that the old revisions are updated -- I just want it all in upper case. ...and I don't want to retype everything one file at a time through the PDM Explorer interface.

I'm concerned about data backups for our PDM server. I'm less inclined to trust the networking team to backup our data nightly and be able to restore it in a timely manner. I'm asking what lessons learned and best practices have been developed and shared in the community? What software is needed?

I've just restarted the Database server Service as it was stuck and not sending out notifications. During that down time, I set up a STEP conversion task and run by a transition in workflow.

automatically updating file data from folder data We currently set project number, customer, project name, etc. as values in the folder data card so each file saved into the folder gets these parameters applied. The problem is when using a file already written to a folder in PDM for a new project it will not overwrite these properties in the file with the new folder data.

Hello, I want to know, if I buy the student license, do I get a PDM where I can create an Add-In for it with the PDM API? I am pretty sure if you buy just the student license and nothing else, there is not any PDM included.

So, we have our datacard and it pulls a ECN # based on the next serial number when someone does the New ECN command. No problem there and technically this isn't a huge problem, but I'm trying to figure out why it changed on me. As mentioned, when we do the New ECN command it pulls the serial number for the new ECN.

Does anyone use Windchill to control SolidWorks files? Do you have any good or bad things to say about it? Have you also used EPDM and have anything good/bad to say about that in comparison? Thanks for any input.

I just had an interesting discussion with my VAR about migration from Workgroup PDM to PDM standard. It is not expected that users will implement PDM standard without help and training from the VAR. Cost approx £1500 per customer, £1000 for implementation and £500 for training.

We recently ungraded our EPDM system from 2015 to 2017 and I was playing around with the new "Set Revision" Feature. I noticed that if you use Set Revision and try to "Roll Back" the revision change, the local revision is NOT roll back. You have to use the "Set Revision" command to roll it back. This is not a huge problem but I was wondering if this will affect the roll back revision that are done through transitions.

I have a part with custom property "DrawingNo" & it's value is 069-003-001 created after entering the value on part file data card in PDM. File name of part is 001(for e.g.). When I create drawing of this part, I want to use value of custom property of the part as file name of drawing file while saving the file.

I was looking in a specsheet for this new program and saw that it will provide doc management capability for SolidWorks and Draftsight projects. I could not find any info on whether it will also allow for handling other formats (doc, pdf, jpg, stl, etc)? WPDM does, although not with the same linking provided to SW files.

Good morning! I was just curious if you might have a tutorial on how to add the PDM file version to the SolidWorks Drawings? I have a variable mapped to the custom property “Version” but can’t quite figure out how to map the current file version over to the variable. We are still using EPDM 2015. (Planning our upgrade to 2017 now, but it will be a few months off.)

We have a satellite office in Europe that has trouble administrating PDM Professional at our local office in the US. When they try to export the vault or save an edited datacard, they get an error message "Failed to get information about image 'image.bmp'. Please make sure that this image exists and Archive server is running." The image in question is a small graphic on the datacard.
