Product Line Code - which is the lowest level of child
Can we do a validation from a field in a Parent item details form to a child BOM?
The Pricing form has a field to display Product name and show some derived fields that are used in a pricing calculations. Can we ensure that somewhere down the chain of BOMs, that the same Product is added as a child?
The validation logic may possibly only be done on a workflow transition.

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.
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.
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.
