Suggestion for custom field or notes field in Folders


#1

Dear @lubos

I come again with this proposal. Why not apply “custom fields” also to Folders in order to store additional information linked to the documents stored in the database?


#2

There are two types of custom fields:

  • Custom fields for individual forms
  • Line item custom fields

Only the first type could possibly apply, since there are no line items on a Folders form. The easiest way to implement this would be with a Notes field. Then no custom field would be required. The Notes field would accept HTML.

I’ll put this in the Ideas category.


#3

@lubos i think it would be better to have custom fields for form in order to have a better classification of the documents


#4

I support additional information for Folders, and I don’t mind what form it takes (Notes field, or custom fields).

For the moment, just having a folder name is serving my purposes well enough.

Added to the latest version (17.10.37)

@lubos thanks a lot

Excellent. Gives us room to further classify/describe folders in the future.
