9.3 Feature: Drag & Drop Content to a Project

Usability was greatly improved in the 9.3 release. This is evident in the Web 2.0 look and feel as well as more intuitive interaction with the user. This is a short post to illustrate usability improvement in one area of PPM. The use-case is that of adding new content to a project. Prior to 9.3, users had to search for content from the Content tab, and had to go through a couple of clicks to add that content. 9.3 retains that method and adds another (and in my opinion, cooler) method to add new content to the project.

9.3 Feature: PLM Reference

In 9.3, we introduced a new attribute for the Project base-class called 'PLM Reference'. This blog post explains why we did this, and highlights some best practices on how to use this field. Before we go into details about why we introduced this field, let me talk about what the attribute is.

Agile 9.3 Gets Graphical with Thumbnails

Dashboard Chart Color Management

I have been asked by several customers about managing colors in charts and graphs in the PLM Dashboard. This issue came up recently as well, and I am taking this opportunity to make this information widely available via our PLM blog. There are two primary issues that customers normally have regarding this. The first one is maintaining general consistency between dashboard charts across tabs i.e. all solid colors v/s matted v/s borders etc. The second issue is more important in my mind and relates to having a consistent color representation for the same status across all tabs and charts so as to not confuse users. e.g. all Change Orders in 'Released' status should be displayed in Green across all tabs.

This blog post addresses both issues and should provide customers and consultants with some good tips on managing colors in the PLM Dashboard.
