Relevant fields after selection
on May 9, 2013 at 2:59:44 pm

Is it possible to have relevant fields to appear after a certain selection is chosen in a field?

Let's say you have a type of media selection field with fixed values, ie Media Type: Rushes or Edits. Is it possible that once a selection is made here different fields become available? For example, if 'Edits' is chosen fields appear (or become 'unlocked') that are relevant to post production, Such as Editor, Post Production Producer, Graphics, etc.

I know you can kind of do this with different production groups but was wondering if there is something I have missed in relation to this. Maybe a future request for expanding the 'linked' elements of the field types?

Yeah, look at Linked Hierarchy fields

From the manual:

Linked Hierarchy:

This allows you to link two pick lists, so the values shown in one depend on the value picked in another. Use a colon character in the name to define which field it depends on. For example, if you had a grouping field called "Team" containing values TeamA, TeamB etc. then you could create a linked hierarchy field called "Player:Team", with pick list values such as TeamA/Player1, TeamA/Player2, TeamB/Player3.

Yes linked hierarchy works for some.
