Promoting and Demoting Members
When Windchill RV&S is used on its own, your administrator can define states that members move through as part of the development process.
A state is free-form text used to classify the condition of a revision in a member history. For example, a document could initially have a state of “Draft”. As work progresses it might be changed to “Review” and eventually “Complete”. If no state is assigned to a revision, a default value of “Exp” (for “Experimental” in English) is used.
To control member workflow more effectively, PTC recommends you use software configuration management with process and workflow management.
