Is there a OTB way to version sub object instances?

  • 1.  Is there a OTB way to version sub object instances?

    Posted 03-27-2015 12:25 PM

    I need to create a way to version the sub object instance and I'm looking into what I can do without processes.

    I.e. each time they press new in the sub object for it to iterate the version number

     

    Object1_sub1

    Object1_sub2

    Object1_sub3

     

    Auto generate looked promising but unfortunately it is global. (i.e. it doesn't restart at 1 on a different instance)

    (you can do "Parent Object Attribute Reference" and combine it with number or text)

     

    Writing a process isn't an issue for us, but just want to check there's not an easy way to do this OTB.

     

    Thanks

    In that case, do not go for auto-numbering and advise the users to follow the sequence.

    Hi NJ,


    Yes I did think of that but I want to keep the user experience as simple as possible, less things the user has to do the better!

    Thanks for your input though, it's looking like a process as it is because the OTB copy function isn't very good.

    "it's looking like a process..." - then that's what should you go for.... I might suggest having a word with support as well
