The Solid Solutions PDM Toolkit for PDM Professional is way of distributing some of our most popular PDM Add-ins via a single / simple platform. The 2022 build currently contains two specific functions that extend the capabilities of PDM Pro.
For Customers using Alias Lists within Template or File DataCards, this add-in enables the user to re-use the ‘friendly’ list item, selected for its Alias, in another DataCard Field.
Once configured, the add-in is triggered when a source variable (defined in the alias rules form) is modified. Once modified the alias rule is obtained and the “displayed value” copied to the predefined destination variable
Web2.0 URL Generator
Until recently the PDM Toolkit contained an option to generate (and copy to the clipboard) a PDM Pro 'formatted link' to any selected File within the Vault. As a result of the 'Copy Link' command being added to the standard PDM Pro interface, this was removed.
For customers using the PDM Pro Web Client however, the links created through 'Copy link' and those generated as part of a Workflow Notification will not work as they require a 'desktop' version of PDM to be set up for that user.
The Web2.0 URL generator provides users with a new Right Click option to generate a Web2.0 Friendly URL can be pasted stored in a Variable (to add to BoMs), pasted into an email or added to a Notification Comment when asking Web2.0 users to participate in the Workflow.
