Ohhhh, so *this* is where the old PLM World forums moved to.
We've been asked to add a pop up dialog to a workflow so that when a user tries to use it they're asked, "Are you sure you really want to do this? [Yes] [No]".
I'm pretty certain that the only way to do that involves UI programming in Java, but I thought I'd ask if anyone has a trick to share.
We know about adding forms to tasks for the users to complete but that's not what the users want.
It's pretty much in user's face, but happens only when user goes to his inbox and "view" the task for this EPM-display-form is set.
That's what I thought. That isn't what they want.
This is a zero-step workflow that sets a "this rev is a mistake, don't use it anywhere" status. They want to add an immediate the-user-can't-do-anything-else-until-they-clicka-the-button dialog to make sure they really want to do that.
Nice to see you here Scott (TC Ninja). You're correct that it will require client-side programming as well as server-side processing. A real pain (no I don't have an example).

One way to avoid server side programming is to suppress CTRL-P or File => New => Process, and instead provide pull down menu for process initiation. Then you can provide your own dialog for user to select the process and if user selects the "this rev is a mistake, don't use it anywhere" process, ask for confirmation.
