To import a ViewSet in the GUI
1. Select ViewSet > Import. The Select ViewSets to Import dialog box displays.
The Select ViewSets to Import dialog box displays the following information:
Imported displays the ViewSet you are going to import.
A check mark icon indicates that the ViewSet has been imported by your Windchill RV&S client and that the version in your client is the same or newer than the one available on the Windchill RV&S server.
Name displays the ViewSet name.
Description displays a description of the ViewSet, if one was provided.
Creator displays the name of the user who created the ViewSet.
Modified Date displays the date the ViewSet was last modified on the Windchill RV&S server. That means that the ViewSet may have a modified date on the server that is newer than the date you last imported it. Furthermore, this date is not affected by customizations you make to the ViewSet.
2. Select the ViewSets you want to import. You can use SHIFT+click or CTRL+click to select multiple ViewSets.
You cannot import the selected ViewSet if it is already open. In addition, if a definition for the ViewSet you are importing already exists, you are prompted to overwrite the existing ViewSet.
3. To perform the import, click OK. The ViewSets are imported and then opened for you in the Windchill RV&S client.
