We have workflow where Managers are approving file and sending them to Released state from Pending for approval. So we need to configure notifications in such a way that Manager should get notifications when he is releasing files. We have tried option "Only to last state modifier". But still not able to achieve this.

interested to know what I can do to check for users experiencing these issues; such as server, O/S, service packs, versions of EPDM and SOlidWorks, settings in SolidWorks, pinging the servers to see if the latency is too high.........those kinds of things. thank you Dwayne If the users have all files locally cached (via Get Latest Version), the biggest slowdown will be the SOLIDWORKS EPDM add-in itself.

I've recently came across a problem where a task, in this case the Convert task, is unable to run and sits at 'Starting Up' in the task list when <execute as logged in user> is specified. My username in the system is part of the admin group so rights are not an issue. The task configuration is permitted and running the most current version of the add-in.

I have a group of parts that have a large number of configurations in each file (1350 configurations). Each configuration is set up with a specific description, and then there is a different default description. I'm trying to get it set up so that all 5 parts will show in the description in the default configuration.

I have searched everywhere through the guides and i cannot seem to find anywhere that has a step by step on how to remove a replicated archive server. We had a replicated server that had its drive get corrupted and I would like to stop replication to it. I turned everything off in the replication settings but it seems like it is still trying to replicate at night and is giving me a bunch of errors in my Archive Server Log.

According to my VAR, deleting users from the vault is not recommended as it could leave "gaps" in the database, so I can understand this (I'm a developer myself), but can anyone tell me if this really the case? What happens when you get a large number of people who have left a firm? I know you can make their accounts inactive (refuse login) but what about hiding them from Lists of Users?

I was wondering if anyone could help please? Im trying to create a list based on the names of folders within a particular folder and integrate it into a EPDM import. Windows can achieve the folder list using a command prompt dir /s /b /o:n /ad > f.txt so I cant see why it wouldn't be achievable within EPDM?

I have a part that somehow got checked into the wrong folder-- the part number is 7038-00250, which somehow got checked into the folder for 7033-00793. I looked into the project's properties, which shows the file path it's on, but it's greyed out and I can't change this (see attached screenshot). Is there some way I can change the file path to manually correct this?

Trying to open image (jpg, png etc) file in PDM Pro with windows photo viewer but EPDM has decided to open them in paint and also check-s out the files (I have never made paint as default photo viewer). Seems like it uses edit command on background or somethign similar. Stupid part is that in windows explorer photoviewer works nicely.

We have recently implemented PDM Pro in our organization and are in the midst of a pilot period. This pilot period is to evaluate all of the potential scenarios for managing our CAD data since we have a combination of new project data, acquired product data and legacy product data that will eventually all be transitioned to PDM. The purpose of the pilot period is to inform and establish the framework for the standard operating procedures and best practices for our organization by working through

What drives the permissions of an automatic transition? I can assign admin to it all day long, but from what I'm seeing, it depends on what the permissions were for the state or transition immediately proceeding the automatic transition.

I'm having an odd issue with exporting my results to excel. Normally, the search columns would be the delimiter so I would see part number in one excel column, description in another, state in a third, etc. But for some reason some of my files are breaking up differently and I think I have it narrowed down. Almost everything is fine except in my description is where I notice the problem.
