Is there a way to limit the history, that NX maintains?  

 

On the palette, you have Today, Yesterday, Past Week, 3 Weeks Ago, and Older Entries.   I know you can clear the history, but can you limit it to just 1 week for example?

Hi @DaveK,

Unfortunately not.  The closest ER we have is ER 2190576 which asks for the ability to clear the history based on a date range (it also mentions deleting history based on a folder).

Dave, do you have a good reason for this wish ?

User not needing/wanting to know what he worked on over 2 weeks ago.

 

The only *real* reason, would be I have had the history file grow very large, and that caused very long load times.  GTAC says it happens on rare occasions, and I was able to attribute it to creating multiple part families with hundreds of members.  Now I pay attention if I do that.

 

I can't say I have, what I would consider, a valid case for an ER.

One issue that drives me nuts (not a very far drive;-)

TC environment

If I "save as" a new revision, then (the next day) I accidentally open the old rev instead of the new rev.

It would be nice to be able to filter on "latest rev only" or be able to delete prior revs from the history.

 

Note for speed: Set the history list to (right click in blank area) "View" -> "List" - eliminates waiting for all those thumbnails to pop up.

Hi @Ken_A,

 

Existing enhancement request (ER) 7959807: "NX: History tab to show latest revision only".

Submitted by some fella called Ken Akerboom (small world eh?)

Can I file a "me too" ER on my own ER?

Unfortunately not, unless you move to a different company, and change your identity Smiley Wink

Users cannot file an ER that has already been submitted by a different user in the same company.  But there's nothing to stop you from nudging others, say in this forum, to "me too" your ERs.  In fact, since I've been posting existing ER numbers I've seen an increase in "me too" requests coming into GTAC.
