Package and Technical Data Package Information Page
A package information page is a collection point for information related to a package. The information page is accessed by clicking the view information icon for a particular package. From the information page, you can perform actions on a package and view attributes and additional information.
For an overview on information page functionality, see About Information Pages and Customizing Information Page Tabs.
Actions available for the package are accessed by clicking the Actions menu at the top of the page. See Common Actions for a list of common actions available in Windchill. The availability of these actions depends on the status of the package as well as your access to it. For information about status indicators, see Object Status. The following actions might be of particular interest for packages:
Add or remove relevant objects to the package as initially selected objects in addition to modifying the collection options. The package contents are automatically refreshed when changes to the initially selected objects or collection options are saved. Refreshing the package contents involves applying the collection options to the initially selected objects.
Filter Properties
View the filters currently applied to the package.
Modify certain package attributes, such as Description.
Modify the filters applied to the package contents. When using the Edit Filters action, changing the applied filters does not refresh the package contents.
