Custom Views for PO_Items and Enforced Views

Hi,

Having the customs views is a great feature in Alloy Software as it alloys us to customize the layout to suit our needs the best. The only problem is I can’t save any custom views for the Purchase Order Items.
There are many columns in the default view of the purchase order items I don’t use.

Also another feature as on our site we have one Alloy Administrator and 7 technicians. Having the ability to enforce a custom views on to the technicians would make a big difference instead of having to go around to each machine and making sure they are using the correct views.
:)

Over all I am very happy with the features in Alloy Navigator 5.

Yes, currently you're not able to creating multiple views for PO Items, but keep in mind you can alter the default view and save it so you do have one view available to you. Not sure if that's enough for you or you're looking to have multiple views.

There's a feature request in our system to allow administrators to remove permissions to create local views, but if seems you want to set technician's default views right? If so I can enter a request for that.

Glad you're happy with the product! :)

Sorry should have been a bit clearer on this one. We would like to be able to share views like you can with other areas such as Software, Hardware.

I added it as a feature request in our system, but can't say when or if it will be implimented.
