Due to the nature of high latency networks there are some optional settings in both PWAdmin and the user mcm.cfg that can be changed to help improve performance in ProjectWise.
PLEASE keep in mind that these settings are just suggestions and should be left to the discretion of your PW Administrator.
Can be used in ProjectWise 08.09.04.xx versions and above
PW Admin –You can turn on these items on under User Properties, Document setting
Does everyone read this in it's entirety? Ok, I won't answer that, but I'm sure we all do enough reading just to keep up and everyone has their "standard" default configurations that gets copied to the newer version when upgrading, but reading this and could be important to you and your users.
These settings are set by default unless otherwise changed only in 08.11.07.xx versions. Earlier versions were not default. Please review these settings fully in the mcm file
