The TABS section of the preview should open up and expand when clicked on instead of redirecting to the specific item. This would allow the quick easy access to key information such as BOM items, attachments, relationships, changes ext. Also there should be the ability to click the specified print view for the item as well.
We need access via the Server Side Sripting to both the BOM Tab & Sourcing Tab.
I believe there are several support threads as well as Ideastation references to this functionality but I felt we needed a clear Idea Post for this functionality.
Similar to the new object record item.workflowitems recently added we need to have information contained in the BOM & Sourcing tabs for use in scripting.
An example would be having an assembly shown on an Sakes Quote Grid and a workflow that would explode the BOM children of that assembly into the grid of an RFQ and access the default supplier to create a master RFQ for cloning quoting purposes.
Ideally this would be read/write access for back feed updating of costing etc.
In the relationships tab, the cross-referenced items are listed under the column: Item, Current State, Type of Relationship, and Description. It would be nice to identify which workspaces the items are originated since the items might be cross-referenced from multiple workspaces.
e.g. certain item in [WS]Products might be related to items from [WS]Tests and [WS]Calculations. It would be nice to identify the items are either from [WS]Tests or [WS]Calcuations by adding another column called Workspace or Category.
Today I came up against a mystery error because I had a derived field that was supposed to be set to derive from a multi-select picklist, but the source was blank When I tried to reset it, the field I wanted would not show on the list as I now realise you can't have a derived field that could show more than one value (i.e. coming from a multi-select picklist).
Could you add this functionality if it is possible as that would be v useful to ensure data only has to be changed in one place, yet is consistent throughout the system ?
Presently, I can create a picklist which can link me to an item in another (or the same workspace). But there is no way for me to see that relationship from the other side.
There is some abiltiy to do this using the BoM and Relationships. But BoM is a very specific relationship model, and Relationships are too generic.
I would like the ability to add a field type on the "linked" object that references the linking object. The field could be read-only, as I mostly want it for reporting.
For instance, if I have an "Inspection" that has a field "Inspected Item" that references an "Item", I'd like to put a "inspections" field on the "Item" workspace that shows me all the inspections. This item has been included in.
Eventually, I can see this being enhance to support:
editing the relationship from the "linked" side
Showing fields other than the description (a mini-grid) for instance in this case, I'd really like to see the "status" of the inspection.
Currently the Multiselect Picklist type is only available for the Item Details & Grid Tabs.
Not only would it standardize the picklist types across the tabs but give added functionality to use those tabs.
An Example would be for the RFQ workspace.
You have a list of parts that are added to the managed items tab from multiple workspaces (electrical parts, hydraulic parts etc.). You can have a multiselect picklist for each row that lists the vendors you would want to have quote on those parts. Your workflow would be:
Create Master RFQ -> Define parts & Vendors (managed Items) -> Request Quote (Spawn new RFQ's for each vendor selected in the multiselect picklist)
Currently this is possible in the grid tab, but the item field can only pull from one workspace whereas the managed items tab can pull from multiple based on the relationships defined.
