PDMp Search Checked-Out Files by Logged in User?

I’m trying to accomplish one of two things as a PDM administrator, listed in order of preference:


  1. Create a favorite search that I can permit all users to use that auto-fills their logged in name to a “Checked Out by User” search.
  2. Create a custom search card that auto-fills the <Logged in user> or %NameOfLoggedInUser% to search files checked out by the logged-in user.


In Favorite searches:

I know how to set permissions for favorite searches.


In search cards:

I’m aware that the Default value/special value grays out on search cards, but not file cards.

I’m aware that to set Default values on search cards you use menu Card->Default Values.

But I can’t figure out how to set the Default Value to the logged-in user.
