I wanted to make the specific request for A related entity picking up the permissions of the related entity
There are probably many aspects of this, as entities can get related at various moments in Fibery:
Creating a new Entity within another Entity’s “details” card
Creating an entity from “Scratch,” say in a table within its own Type in its App
I wanted to focus on the first example, Creating a related entity from an Entity Card
My team really uses this feature a lot. In particular, when you create an Entity from a Rich Text field, and it’s auto-related into the Connections section. This is currently only available on One-to-Many relations. It would be great if when that happens, these newly related “children” Entities inherit the permission of the “Parent” where the new Entity is created.
One use of this would be Time Tracking: If you have a large time tracking Type, like shown here:
You would be able to have each Time Tracking Entity with permission only of the “Parent” entity in which time is tracked. So if your Financial officer is working on some sensitive info, that time tracked won’t be visible to a contractor on a month-to-month agreement, who’s also in the same Time Tracking Type.
This would imply that within a Type, Entities can have various permission levels, which is being worked on per these related requests:
Hope that’s something you guys are thinking about, thanks!
