Well, we may not be able to help you get to any particular meditation state, but today we’ll delve into getting to certain workflow states. Do you ever find yourself in this scenario in your Autodesk PLM 360 tenant? You might have an item at a particular state in a workflow (say, state 3 out of 9) and you need to clone the item and make a very small change. When the change is of a type that previous workflow states do not need visited, you want the new item to pop to the same workflow state as the original item. Check out this video (below) for a strategy using workflow configuration and scripting on how to handle this situation. (If your organization makes use of the Additional Owners field and this needs cloned as well, it will take additional configuration & scripting — tune in next time for additional pointers on how to implement this requirement.)
In a scenario such as the one we covered today to get a new, cloned item to the same state as an existing item, the workflow map and scripting engine that Autodesk PLM 360 provides can be handily leveraged to meet the needs of your business. If you would like assistance with your implementation or have questions about the information presented here, please feel free to contact us – we would love to help!
