2017 Variable Search Logic Errors We recently upgraded to 2017 PDM and I just noticed that several of our favorite searches no longer work. The searches were working fine before the upgrade, but now they don't return anything.

I am new to a PDM systems so it could be some simple setting that I am missing but every time I type in a file name (part number) it seems to pull up every file that is in the vault some of which have nothing to do with what I am looking for. Any help would be appreciated. Are you using one of the default search cards that come with EPDM or something else?

Work offline mode doesn't save lower level parts I'm trying to load files to work on while I'm offsite without PDM access, so I'm trying to use "work offline". While I'm 'online', I can click on the Assy that I want to work on, and Get Latest, and then Check Out.

In EPDM, our model and drawing variables are set such that when you create a drawing from a model the variables from the model are carried over to the drawing. But it only, automatically populates "@" tab on the data card of the drawing. The sheet 1 Tab gets only the file name and other variables are empty.

Our users are looking for a way in which they can cancel tasks without being granted access to the administration tool. I had originally looked at using the API to accomplish this, but from the following discussions, it looks like the API doesn't support this functionality:

As you all know, Workgroup PDM is being phased out over the next two releases. I've decided to get a jump on this and switch over now rather than waiting until this time 2 years from now. But I have some questions about general best practices for setting up a PDM system. Is there any such document laying out best practices for those of us starting with a blank slate?

Why would a small company ever use PDM Standard BOM functionality? Seems like a major complication. Also I believe (not sure) the BOM in PDM is different from the drawing BOM?

I have been testing the print function within PDM professional tasks and it's going to be awesome but... I can't get all of the drawings (size B) to scale to fit a size A sheet. Any one have this happen to them? I have not seen any settings with in the task set up to allow a scale to fit option but that seems like a great idea.

Has anybody seen something like this? We have a user with an assembly in PDM. The datacard is filled out (the '@' tab, we don't use configuration-specific properties). He opens the assembly in Solidworks, and from the PDM add-in pane, clicks 'Show Properties' to view the datacard.
