Here are just a few examples of Software Performance Requests (SPR) which originated as Enhancement Requests (ER) along with a short explanation of what the user is requesting.

SPR 1053440 – Dashboard for PDM Administration to view permissions and settings of users and groups.
The user is requesting a dashboard interface to view and modify PDM User and Group settings/permissions rather than hunting them down in various locations within the PDM Admin tool.

SPR 1053452 – PDM user permissions inherited from group should display the group name next to the icon.
The user is requesting PDM display the actual group name(s) next to the group icon for permissions inherited by the group. Currently, only a generic Group Icon is displayed.

SPR 843254 – Need a Backup Monitor and Reminder (NAG) function built into the Administration Tool for Database and Archives.
The user is requesting PDM monitor the backup frequency and send an automated alert if the backup was missed or not configured.

SPR 608159 – Provide the ability to specify SolidWorks client settings directly in the Options Editor without having to use an existing reg file.
This user is requesting functionality that would allow CAD Admins to configure a default Settings Administrator file without the need to start with an existing file.

SPR 542183 – Ability to ‘repair’ a client installation directly, without having to use the admin image or hta file (so that you don’t have to uninstall/reinstall).
This user is requesting functionality that would add the Repair function to Admin Images. Currently, Repair is only available for Standalone installations. This is an open but INACTIVE Enhancement Request you can vote on to reopen. This functionality would add the Repair function to Admin Images. Currently, Repair is only available for Standalone installations.

SPR 1042405 – SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager should run a Windows User Account Control (UAC) check before installation.
This was an Enhancement Request submitted by a user which was later implemented in release SW2019 SP05. The added functionality gave the Admin additional control over the user environment.

SPR 819353 – SOLIDWORKS Electrical: Make the feature grid customizable by allowing the Admin user to enable/disable features for different profiles.
This was a critical Enhancement Request submitted by a user which was later implemented in release SW2020 A1. The added functionality improved the installation process by determining if the UAC is configured properly for the user to install SOLIDWORKS.
