We have three seats of SW and three users. We are storing all of our files (>3000) on a server and accessing them with Windows File Explorer. How much easier would our lives become if we transitioned to PDM? (Sorry, I'm an engineer...I can't help it. ) We need to justify the cost.

We have just started PDM notifications (SMTP) in PDM Professional. A couple of users get an error message blockking them when trying to use the links in the PDM notification email.

Hi all, we want to define our data card so that data with the status "invalid" are not displayed in the normal search. We have defined the invalid status in the workflows and did take the user rights to see this data. Does anyone have an idea how this can work the best way?

Is it possible to show the path in the data card using PDM Std? Here is how I have it set up currently: I want the path in the card so that I can copy the path when I am importing or separating bodies to new files and saving them into the vault. Plus it's just a good reference if searching. SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm
I'm working in our EPDM workflow system. The current PDF creation during our Release state change is working perfectly. The only issue appears to be that it comes in as "Initial Check in" I want it to be our Released state. I cant seem to find any check mark box or value i can select to make it match the state of the part being released.
