Dispatch (For SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional only)

SOLIDWORKS PDM Dispatch lets you automate tasks and processes in SOLIDWORKS PDM. The module is fully customizable and configurable to accommodate support for any type of task or process.

Dispatch integrates seamlessly into a vault and can be made to trigger on a number of events. For instance, an administrator might create a Dispatch action that triggers whenever a document reaches a certain workflow state. The triggered Dispatch action might, for example, initiate a script that creates a PDF file of the document.
