Tip Tuesday! Best Practices in PLM 360
Today’s tip is bought to you by a late night “so that’s why I can’t edit this record” moment – if there are no further transitions in a workflow, it’s locked. If you want to lock the workflow earlier, you can explicitly set the lock in the State Properties. If you do want the record to still be editable, consider having a loopback transition (I use ‘Add Comments’ often). You can also give special permissions to override the workflow locks if you have a set of users that need this.
What Best Practices do you use in configuring your system? If you want to share with other PLM 360 administrators, think about becoming a speaker at AU 2014 – sign up to get notified when the AU 2014 Call for Proposals opens.
