The many uses of Workflow Signoff Duration

Honk if you've ever been annoyed by a single approver taking forever to sign off on a document. With Agile 9.3, we've introduced a new feature called "Workflow Signoff Duration" that tracks, for any workflow step that requires one or more reviewers to sign off, the number of days that have elapsed since the reviewer got notification of needing to sign off on an object (if he hasn't signed off yet) or the number of days the reviewer took to actually sign off on the object (if he has signed off on it).

How do you lock down Item privileges based on the Change Order Status in Agile PLM?

Often our customers are looking for additional means to restrict Read or Modify privileges on an Item based on the status of related Changes. For example, file attachment checkin may need to be allowed for pending revisions of items only as long as the corresponding ECO is in authoring mode ("Pending" status), but not once the ECO gets submitted or routed. Before Agile PLM 9.2.2.2, achieving the desired business result could be complicated. Now, Agile PLM has some very powerful capabilities to write Criteria against an Item that checks the related Change status. The enhanced functionality around variables such as $CURRENTREV and $LATESTREV can help Agile Administrators write criteria that meet business goals to limit Item Read or Modify privileges.[Read More]
