 Enhancements for User Settings


With this feature, you can make additional user settings for the product structure Web UI.

For example, you can select a tree view type that makes sense for your role, that is, you can choose between a Product View, a Design View, or a Product Structure Only view in the Tree Settings. This view will be loaded when you initially start the UI.

The Material BOM Explosion section of the User Settings enables you to define explosion parameters for MBOMs within a product view.

In Customizing, you can predefine all default settings for the User Settings that are available for users on the Web UI. You can also define whether specific settings should be visible to users, hidden from users, or read-only.
