Revising Items in Upchain

In this lesson, we’ll look at how you can revise items in the Web application and the Mechanical CAD plugin, as well as some best practices to keep in mind.

 

Before getting started:

You must already have items in your tenant in a released state. Review course "Change management 1" for how to do this.

Key takeaways

  1. Revisions to released items can be for many different reasons and can occur at any time in the item’s lifecycle.
  2. Revising a released item creates a new version of the item, which is in development. The original released item still exists.
  3. Revising a component within an assembly or electrical package means you must revise the assembly/electrical package as well.
  4. You should only revise electrical items or items without CAD in the web application.
  5. Revision notes should be filled in as changes are made so that you do not forget what changes you've made when you eventually release the item again.
