We have now introduced the powerful feature we call "Metadata Inheritance". This allows configuring columns to automatically copy values from parent dossier or list referenced by a lookup.
One use case is to allow documents to automatically be tagged with meta data from its dossier, so that it can be found more easily by search.
It can be configured in the Column Editor on the Values tab by selecting the "~Inherit - retrieve from connected list item's column (metadata inheritance)":
The list (of the parent dossier or referenced by lookup) can be specified and the column from which to copy the value can be set:
The column value is updated automatically whenever the source value changes or the referenced item is changed.
The following restrictions or issues are known:
- Date time field types are not supported yet
- When list with taxonomy field is restored from a template, calculations may not be working
- If errors occur on one configured meta data inheritance column, other configured meta data inheritance columns might not be updated automatically
Licensing and payment
We are implementing license checks. For the moment a valid license is automatically generated for every user, so you should not notice any changes. If you currently encounter licensing messages, please contact skybow support.
