Tip Thursday! Smarter Workflows with Fusion Lifecycle

By     DECEMBER 1, 2016

food-popcorn-snack-movie-37540Good news!  The Autodesk University classes for 2016 have been uploaded.  So if you didn’t make it (or if you were there and missed some classes), be sure to check out the Fusion Lifecycle classes.  I was busy this AU manning the Answer Bar, so I’ll be sure to grab some popcorn and review quite a few of the classes myself!

One class I was able to attend was PL21304: Smart Workflow: Adding Business Logic to Your Fusion Lifecycle Workflows with Scripting. I jotted down a few notes from the class.  A good rule of thumb to use when writing scripts in Fusion Lifecycle is to limit them to one page.  If it goes beyond that, consider using a library script or rethinking your approach.

Another tip was to make sure any validation script messaging is detailed enough, so that the end user knows why the transition didn’t occur.
