Benefits and Description

The “Save to Workspace” action and associated behavior has been redefined in Windchill 10.1:

This allows customers to work with data on the file system without having to disconnect from the Workgroup Manager (save back to file system), it streamlines user interaction (no UI requiring user interaction), and also more clearly defines what Save to Workspace should be used for (importing files from the file system).
