Thanks for the thorough response.
I can certainly check with the client about sponsoring the initial cost of the enhancements. How much do you think that would be?
Ultimately, I’d think a list view this would be a generally useful enhancement for Connections’ user-base, but we can certainly see about helping getting it developed.
While we’re on the subject another enhancement they mentioned is the ability to manually order or rank a list (a list being the items in a category, or subcategory. Perhaps just a simple Order Index field that can be manually entered, or just a way to drag ‘n’ drop order items within a category — i.e. a manual sort or order.
Just something that could be sorted by in the list view, e.g. a “Rank” column.
As you can imagine, this might only useful in smaller list use cases — in this case we’re only talking about short lists (i.e. categories) with less than 100 entries — but I can imagine that this would also be interesting to “stick” certain entries in a certain order to the top of a list, perhaps.
Let me know what you think.
Interestingly, DataTables actually has a paid developer license for an “Editor” that lets data be edited in its DataTable format. Might be interesting for a future enhancement. http://editor.datatables.net/purchase/index
