Document Export extends Windchill’s Document Management module by dynamically exporting documents to an external location. This extension can export both content and metadata. Document Export is typically used to feed external tools that distribute documents to a wider audience outside of the PLM environment.
The basic function of this extension is to Export data related to a Document to an external file system, including a network drive. This Export is done by fetching the relevant data and meta data.

Any user that is a Site or Organization administrator will have access to the Export logs. The logs are available through a button situated in the Quick Links menu.
The logs will contain the name, number and version of the Document that triggered the Export alongside the time of the operation and whether it succeeded or failed.
As the Export operation to a server is done through a process queue the administrator will need to create one for the extension to work properly.
The process queue will need to be named
Administrator can export manually from the menu of the document
Each export is logged in the database, once this grows too large the data is archived
