Sharing Rules and Considerations
When an object is shared to a project, a status glyph appears in the Folder Contents table and on the object information page:
Shared to a project
Shared from PDM
Checked out from PDM
Checked out to a project
Moving a Shared Object
Source objects that are shared to a project cannot be moved between folders or contexts. Shares have to be removed from all projects before moving the source object.
Numbering Schemes
When an object is created in a project and then sent to PDM, a new number is assigned according to PDM object initialization rules.
If the numbering scheme for the target context is set to manual, you can enter a number into this field.
If the numbering scheme is set to automatic, the object number is automatically generated.
If the number generation is the same in both contexts, the object keeps the number that is assigned in the source project.
