Not all document change efforts in SOLDIWORKS PDM Professional go exactly to plan every time. Sometimes the changes just need to be rolled back to the last approved state. For a single document, this is a fairly simple process from the History dialog. But for assemblies, or drawings referencing models the process gets a bit more time consuming, and error-prone. Administrators are justifiably cautious about permitting users to rollback at all. Especially since there are no safeguards in the rollback permission to prevent it from rolling too far back. The HAWKWARE team solves this dilemma with the PDM Revision Rollback add-in for SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. Your administrator can now create a rollback state, and give users access to a transition to it, letting the add-in do the rollback, only as far as the last assigned revision. Since this add-in runs as a proxy user with rollback rights, the users don’t require rollback rights at all. This safeguards your data and the integrity of your processes.
