Are you using out-of-the-box PDM tasks in your workflow? Did you know that it is possible to customise the scripts for the task to get more functionality? I have published a blog post describing the techniques for customisation and debugging of PDM built-in tasks (such as Convert Task): Code Stack: Customizing SOLIDWORKS PDM Convert Task
This can be helpful for API developers and PDM administrators. It is not required to have strong SOLIDWORKS or PDM API skills to customise the task as it is possible to use macro recording for this (as shown in the video).
