Run Script by Push Button

Status: Implemented
by Distinguished Contributor obourne on ‎02-21-2013 01:55 PM

I'd like the ability to run a script by pushing abutton in the workspace item and not have to rely upon a state transition to do so. There are times where I want to create an item but use data from an existing item (the one I'm in at that time) and then link them together via the relationships tab. I want to do this without a state change (because state change would not be needed to simply link to items). I realize I can change behaviors to run a script upon creation that could do much of the same. It just makes sense to NOT to have to navigate away from where I'm at and then remeber what I want to link to. I'm all about automation.

This feature is finally being rolled out.  This will be in our upcoming release.

Scripting Access to Relationships Tab

Status: Implemented
by pmaxted1 ‎08-02-2012 12:23 PM - edited ‎08-02-2012 12:25 PM

It is often both difficult and tedious to manually create relationships between different workspace items (as the picture below illustrates). It would save a lot of time to be able to write scripts to automatically add relationships between workspace items. 


Even tying the ability to add relationships into the function createItem('WS_WORKSPACE_ID') would be a huge time saver.

​ Default filters in a picklist

Status: Implemented
by cruzj on ‎06-05-2013 10:43 AM
We would like to be able to narrow down a linked picklist for a certain criteria.

Example: We use Product ID as a unique identifier for products. In other workflows, we will link a picklist of Product IDs to a form so that we can assign more attributes to the product. Product ID  can have a status of "Assigned," "Orderable" or "Retired." We would like to pre-filter a picklist of products to show only those that are in status "Assigned" but not "Orderable" state. There is no current client-side scripting available today.

Only possible by "chaining" workspaces. Create a new picklist when the item changes status, e.g., when a Product ID is first released, spawn record in another workspace with the narrowed-down population of "Assigned." .

Allow bulk Import into Multiple Selection Picklists

Status: Implemented
by Contributor Asingh5 ‎11-14-2012 10:52 AM - edited ‎11-14-2012 10:53 AM

When using the import tool, performing a bulk import of values into a "single selection" linking picklist is possible. Unfortunately I cannot select a "Multiple Selection" linking picklist it in my import to do the same thing.


This feature is very important for our company since it would allow us to show our linked product items in one specific field, as opposed to having multiple "single selection picklists"--which doesn’t make a clean visual. 


The data I have is in a excel format. With over thousands of entries, having the import tool to bulk import the linking picklist values in the multiple selection picklists would allow me to provide my tenant with the information it needs efficiently and visually appealing.

Modify Item Views for multiple users

Status: Implemented
by jbarnett ‎03-12-2013 08:01 AM - edited ‎03-12-2013 08:02 AM

At this time, all views are by individual. There is not a way to globally configure a view globally.  Item Views should be able to be modified for an entire team from the system admin rather than from case to case basis.



Status: Implemented
I think this is pretty well covered in, another Idea Station submission (Copy custom views between users), so I'm going to move this one to dupicate status.

Debug mode

Status: Implemented
by keith.tyler on ‎06-27-2013 11:17 AM

It would be beneficial to have a debugging mode for scripting (including stepping through low level scripts for which code is not available).

Debugger was added to the May 2014 release! See Advanced Debugging in the Help at: ;

Adding Project Management items in the Project Management tab is tedious at times. Being able to add project items through scripting would allow an automated procedure involving less time consumption and tedious routine work.

Mass Deletes from the Import Tool

Status: Implemented
by Employee ‎06-22-2012 01:21 PM - edited ‎06-22-2012 01:22 PM

If a user imports a large number of new items (not BOM items) and realizes a mistake has been made. Now the user has to delete all these item through the UI, which is very painful. The user would like to perform a mass delete with a list of specific items.


It would be nice for the user to use the existing match functionality in the import tool, with the option to delete existing records on match.

Pre-Filtering a Linked Pick List

Status: Implemented
by Contributor zep.tyrushudson on ‎05-06-2013 11:28 AM


I think it would be very useful to be able to "pre-filter" a pick list or linked pick list, using a pre-filtering text field, which can be editable, visible, or hidden.  For example, I have a linked pick list in a "Product Family" workspace that points to my Items and BOMs workspace.  I want users to be able to select one or more records from the Items and BOMs workspace, but I want them limited to a particular prefix (for example, we use 850- prefix for our SKU's).  In my Product Family items and details tab, I could create a hidden field with the text, "850", which could be used to pre-filter the linked pick list to only show items starting with "850".  When setting up the pre-filtering rules, it would be important to be able to specify the filter condition...starts with, contains, does not contain, etc.
