Information in this document applies to any platform.
Using Agile Product LifeCycle Management 9.3.3 with SolidWorks MCAD connector 3.4.0. When assigning a change order (ECO) from MCAD connector and placing the Item on the ECO then saving it back to Agile PLM, the user notices that the Item is not put under the Changes tab of the Affected Item in Agile Web Client.
