Hi again guys,
I’m sure this is on the roadmap as it’s pretty basic functionality. I wanted to add a few particular requests for templates or copying of entities:
I am making extensive use of the tables in the Rich Text Fields. I would like to be able to quickly add a new entity that would already have that included, based on some columns I have already set up. So one idea would be to allow for “create from template” in each of the places where you are able to create a new entity. That could possibly affect the UI as you’d need to include that in a lot of places, then also show a list of templates to choose from. Perhaps there are some better ideas around how to make this happen?
another idea is to be able to quickly copy an existing entity, which would have the template of choice, via right click menu when you guys come out with those. So I could add into a “Connections” field with relations quickly a duplicate of another entity in there.
This is related to types of fields, but in my case, if I could more quickly have a table in the entity, that would also work. So this could be done by 1) ability to drag and create a table of user-determined height and width, 2) a field type “table” that could be quickly added to the Type, so all entities would have it, 3) some more controls in existing tables: Ability to grow a table by clicking “tab” in the last row - Confluence has this, and more free movement around a table with cursors and the keyboard.
Hope that’s useful guys, thanks as always!
