    Grouping & Selection

    alexissindicic

      Hello awesome FM community,

       

      I am retrieving datas from a portal

       

      grouping.jpg

      I'd like to be able to select keyword (a) (e) and (f) using a checkbox and then apply a modification to this selection (let's say add a tag to them)

       

      I did not find a way to create such a selection (maybe i should be in search mode?) and to apply modifications on a selection.

       

      If you have any ideas ?

          Can you describe what you want in more detail?

            Is each check box in your example on its own portal row?

            Would you enter or select the tag to associate with them in a separate text field?

              Hey philmodjunk

               

              Thanks for your answer

               

              Let's say that in a database you have these keywords :

              vegan ice cream

              ice cream ideas for vegans

              how to do ice cream

              vegan ice cream recipes

              how to do ice

               

              and you decide that you would like to write a Page (http://www.yoursite.com/vegan-ice-cream-receipe ) about keyword N°1 / 2 / 4 (because they relate to vegan)

               

              With lots of keywords, this grouping of (keywords) into (pages) can be  difficult, so i need a way to sort my keywords and then to group them (i was thinking of using a checkbox next to them because it looks easier to check / uncheck keywords).

               

              When the selection is done

               

              [ X ] vegan ice cream

              [ X ] ice cream ideas for vegans

              [   ] how to do ice cream

              [   ] vegan ice cream recipes

              [ X ] how to do ice

               

              I'd like to "script" this selection

               

              for example Loop [ (open keyword view) - (Set field _fkPage to a desired value) ]

              in order to attach the keywords to a new page.

               

              Do you see where i want to go ?

                Well.. I start to understand what i can do...

                 

                I added a Field in the Keyword table : Keyword_selected

                I used a checkbox with value list (with only one value : 1) in my portal.

                 

                Now if i check the keyword i give him a value of 1 in Keyword_selected ; so it is quite easy for me to retrieve the selected keywords with a search.

                So part 1 of my problem is resolved (how to select keywords)

                 

                And part 2 should be also resolved soon Thanks !

                  If your file is shared, you'd need some addition for the checkbox which also shared. (If you check in a record, it applied to all other users)
