An easy way to rule the world

Here’s a nice little SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM trick I saw one of our customers in Bowling Green, Kentucky do: Create a group named “Everyone”, add everyone to it, and check the “Add new users automatically to this group” option.

You don’t need to give this group any rights but there are several times it comes in handy:

  • A fast way to “Refuse Login” if you need to ensure everyone is off the system
  • Make a great search that you want to share with everyone?
  • Want to ensure everyone is using the same viewers? There are lots of group settings you can manage.

I am sure you can come up with lots of other uses.
