Vote NOW for Your Top SolidWorks Enhancements!

sww_top10SolidWorks is going to be doing something different for the well known “Top Ten SolidWorks Enhancements” that are revealed to attendees of SolidWorks World every year.  In the past, voting was limited to attendees of the conference only and the topics were pre-selected.  For SolidWorks World 2009, they are opening up voting to ALL customers currently on maintenance through a new SITE where you can submit, vote, and comment on ANY Enhancement Request!  That’s right, you will be able to see EVERYONE’S Enhancement Requests!  Not only that….you can vote and leave comments on each of them!  VERY COOL!  You must have a Customer Portal login to access the site.

Once you go past the front page and enter the site which is labeled at the top as “SolidWorks Brainstorm” (A very appropriate title if you ask me.)  you immediately see the most popular requests (based on voting.)  There are several categories available.  If you don’t see one that fits what you are looking for, just use the “General” category.

Once you enter a Category you’ll see the top enhancements for that category.  At this point you can pick which enhancements in the list you want to vote for.

When you click on an individual enhancement request, you can leave comments!  (If you read my second Blog article posted back in 2006, you won’t be surprised what my first Enhancement Request on this site is for.)

You can also access the Ideas section for a list of your ideas, Favorite, Popular, & Recently added items.

Right Now this site is only being used for the Top Ten List at SolidWorks World.  Whether or not it will be integrated into the current Enhancement Request system remains to be seen.

So STEP UP SolidWorks users!  Submit, Vote, & Comment today!  Let your voice be heard!

Stay tuned….more to come!

    Very nice improvement, driven by customer !!!

  • Not quite that extreme. :-) Maybe I did over do it with my capitalization. :-)

    It is really exciting that the list will have “more representation” this year at SolidWorks World!

    Gosh! all my Xmases have come at once
    This has only been asked for for maybe 5-6 years or more..
    Indeed how often was this and other things requested to be met with no response no matter who asked or how
    At one time there was a private site along the lines of this
    I wonder if old time users remember that…
    Back in the days when we had real forums and not sound bite opportunites
    Well better very late than never :)
    I'll bet agreeing to this was very painful to some of the SW management eh guys?

  • kholish

    I have tried many times, but got a problem with login ( after login always back to login page again ).

  • The idea is that all SW users not only have the right to vote on these in my view, but should vote on the ones that reflect their needs to be more PRODUCTIVE.

  • Ok, I have visited the site and cast my votes on the ones I feel needed in SW to help my productivity. I also voted on your's Ricky. It has drove me nuts for a long time not being able to rename a config that is in use.

  • Kholish,

    I know that there have been some problems, but Bill Taylor and the IT group here have been working on it feverishly. If you're still having problems, email Bill: btaylor at solidworks.com
