Wanted to bump this up as I am hoping it is something we will see in the future. The reason I am asking again is that as I build my Fibery, I am both working in it, and evolving the set up at the same time. So I am seeing a few situations where I’d like to adjust the set-up of Types and Apps, but in a few cases there are tens of entities I’d need to recategorize to do this.
Here is an example: I am tracking both “ideas” and “questions” for my team as entities. I set this up to try to capture thoughts and questions my team has on a daily basis, that would previously get buried in Slack or Email. Initially I was using one entity to track this, as I thought that was sufficient, with a select list to choose whether the entity is an “idea” or “question.” But this is really working well, to the point now that I can see I should really have an entity for both “ideas” and “questions.” One reason is that as the current entity that contains both gets filled, we are seeing a different dynamic about how we handle ideas vs. questions, for example they should go through different workflows. But if they are in the same entity, I have to use the same workflow.
What I’d like to do is filter the entities that are now categorized as “ideas,” and move them to a new entity type just for “ideas.” If I can’t do that, I’m faced with copying and pasting 10s of entities that are already built out with relations, comments, attachments, etc. that I don’t want to lose.
Moving entities across Types is like moving tasks between Folders in Wrike, or issues between Projects in Jira, which I consider basic functionality of a work management tool. So I’m hoping this is something you guys also plan and consider a basic feature.
Thanks as always for the consideration!
