Edit Properties Flexibility.

Status: Future Consideration
by *Expert Elite* on ‎12-12-2012 07:26 AM

I would like to have the ability to set up a pre selected list of properties to edit for a specific object type in Vault Pro.  For example, if I select a File and choose Edit Properties, the edit window would open with a specific list of editable properties. If I select, however, a Custom Object and choose Edit Properties the edit window would open with a different list of editable properties for that object type.  Right now, the only way to do this is with the properties grid.  I have to search through a massive list of system and user properties, highlight the ones I want and choose Edit Selected Properties.  I have to do this for each individual object that I want to edit.

You can edit mulitple properties on mulitple documents in one step.  Select all of the documents, then pre-select the properties.....  then select 'Edit Selected Properties'.

There are some apps that you should take a look at.

 

DECO lets you create your own edit window for Custom Object properties.

Reitec.Vault.Datasheet lets you create your own edit window for file properties.

This should be default functionality.  Along with multi-select lists for properties and linked lists between fields.

 

Basically, let someone create a property entry form.
