there are lot of big software company (CAD and others), that during the beta program, use a special beta forum to connect participants at the beta program and the software engineers.
Siemens PLM could conform to this clever habit.
we don't ask to open the NX beta forum to replace ER, but as all forums, it is a discuss table about new functionality. Talk is the first step to know.
Wanted to share an update with you. I'm in the process of creating a private area for NX Beta attendees to discuss testing and the next release of the software. Anyone who attended this year will have access. Look for an email from me soon (next 1-2 weeks) inviting you to join and participate
