Request : "Label" for template status fields.

Postby jjeffman » Wed Jan 04, 2012 11:16 am

Hello Artem.

What about adding a column to the template status field definition ? I would like to have a "label" or "display name", nullable, to contain the text to be shown on eTraxis records.

I have defined a template status field as "tiposol" but I would like it to be shown as "Tipo de Solicitação" which might not be a valid template status field name.

Best regards.

Hello Jayme,

Sorry, I'm not sure I understood you right. As far as I can see, you are talking about ability to add custom fields to a template, just like it's possible for a state. Did I get your suggestion right? If yes, then I can say that such feature is already under development and is going to be released this Spring. If I'm wrong about your suggestion, could you please clarify.

Thank you,
Artem

Hello Artem.

My request is related to the fields of a template status.

Developers (mainly database designers) usualy define field names abreviated such as "my_fld_nm". eTraxis show them in the records pane as they were defined. It is very hard to a end user understand what those abreviated names stand for.

So, it will be very helpful to end users if we had a way to display a friendly name for any field instead of its real name.

I hope it is more clear now.

Best regards.

Hello Jayme.

I'm confused - why don't specify the real (user-friendly) name for a field from the beginning, avoiding names like "my_fld_nm" at all?
Best regards,
Artem

Hello Artem.

May a have a field named as "Tipo de Solicitação" ? If so I can avoid having label to fields.

Best regards.

Jayme.

Hello Jayme.

Yes, you can! Projects, groups, templates, states, fields - everything can have free human-readable names. And all these names are stored using Unicode, so it doesn't matter if you need some special characters in a name.
Best regards,
Artem
