Only what you need to know

NO RATINGS
Nice article, Beth. Given how important collaboration has become, it's a nice step forward to see an application that allows the user to shield from view the parts of a project that not everyone needs to see. This is one of those steps that can help encourage collaboration.

Absolutely, Rob, and especially when a lot of what you're shielding--in this case, oftentimes complex math calculations--might not mean anything to some of the stakeholders involved in product development. In this way, you let them see what they need to see to understand the design or what they need to do to push it forward, but nothing more.

I would imagine the feature also comes in handy when companies collaborate with their vendors, as with Boeing. Instead of tearing the design apart to send the vendor just a section, they would be able to use the shield function.

Beth and Rob, does this shield function allow you to hide calculations without the user being able to exapnd it if they want?  If so, that would answer the need that Rob mentons.
