Enable the customisation of Item fields displayed in Work Center search results Hot

by Gary Mayes on June 12, 2015

It would be great for us if it was possible to cusomise the fields returned for items in the WorkCenter smart search results.

  • It would be great for us if it was possible to cusomise the fields returned for the items in the WorkCenter smart search results. At the moment, the clickable item reference is the SBM Item ID (e.g. BUG12345), but it would be great if this could be one of our own Reference numbers, or at the very least if you could check a box to use the "Value Display Format" instead. Jackie from Serena support has already raised an Enhnancement case for this (ENH257608: SWC: Enable the customisation of search results in Work Center) but thought it could be good to raise it here as an Idea too - in case anyone else could expand on the idea further! Cheers, Gary

  • For us, value display format in ID Search is indispensable, because we have a couple of subtask workflows for which the Item ID is identical, so that the multiple subtasks can be linked easily and directly to the parent item.

    Although most of the multiple subtask item Titles are unique, we rely on a separate script-generated alphanumeric "ID Suffix" to differentiate items.

    I did develop a report that I threw into our initial Work Center group's Report Favorites, and that will do for now. (The report also has the advantage of sorting by Item ID / ID Suffix, which the Classic View ID Search couldn't do.)

    In the Classic View ID Search, the value display format allows the Suffix ID to be displayed following the Item ID. In Work Center, viewing the several, or 10, 20, 30 or more items with identical Item ID's is pretty useless.

    This idea has been deferred for consideration in the 2HCY'17 release.
