The First thing to note about Columns in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2021 is the Columns node in PDM Administration. It now contains the sub nodes File Details Columns, File List Columns, File Operations Columns, Quick Search Columns and Search Results Columns. The addition of these sub nodes will make organizing and customizing your various Column sets easier.
When creating a Column set under one of these sub nodes, the Column set will contain predefined options.
There are also new Types that can be chosen for the Column Set.
The Columns interface has been cleaned up by the addition of tabs for Columns and Permissions.
The default sort and sort direction can be defined by the Sort Column pull-downs.
In PDM 2021 for a Column set, under the Permissions tab, the Column set can be assigned to a User or Group. The Column set can also be assigned as the Preferred Column Set.
Users can switch between Column sets by right-clicking within the Explorer Vault View.
