My product support colleague, Boris Chan, wrote a detailed tutorial regarding guidelines for configuring workspace tabs – great read!
Something I think this tutorial highlights is that you don’t need to be a programmer to configure PLM 360. We’ve already established I’m old based on my Tab drinking confession - going back a dozen years, I remember what it took to create tabs in other software solutions: you’d need to create new tables in the database, then relationships and finally add GUI elements. PLM 360 comes with over a dozen ready to use tabs. Tabs that can easily be renamed. It may not seem like an important matter, but many end users like to see nomenclature they are used to seeing. My first exposure to PLM 360, I saw a tab named ‘Linked Items’ – quickly changed that to ‘Affected Items’ and I was a happy camper.
And now for my tip. If a tab has been renamed, it’s easy to see what sort of tab it is right in the URL. ^MS
