HawkWare Tools: Auto Document Number

Auto Document Number enhances the already impressive numbering capability present in SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM by providing users a significantly more customizable interface. ADN allows you to set up to 4 categories of prefix/suffix information to attach with a general number incrementer. For example, your number could be Product Line-Product Type-Material-XXXX, Product Line-Product Type-XXXX-Material or any other combination you would like with up to 4 categories. ADN will even rename your file with the new serial if you choose. Best of all, each numbering scheme increments independently of the next so numbers don't get skipped. If you need more flexibility than Enterprise PDM can provide out of the box, this application is for you.

HawkWare Tools: Rollback to Last Revision

This application is great if you would like to allow users rollback functionality but limit how far they can rollback. Accessed through a right click or via a workflow transition, Rollback to Last Revision will remove all versions of a file up to the last time its revision was incremented. This is great for making trial changes to a released document and deleting them if they don't work or for allowing users rollback flexibility without the worry of going too far.

HawkWare Tools: Add References

This tool provides the Enterprise PDM user with a file browsing interface to create file references. Instead of checking out a file, copying the target file, pasting as reference and then checking in the source file, the user only needs to right click on the source file and choose the appropriate references to attach. This saves lots of time and mouse clicks when creating your own references.
