Anyone have any ideas on how I could take a single record and make a copy of the record for each of several users I choose? Let’s say I own a task and I want to create copies of that task for three of my coworkers. Same task, four copies, four owners. Has anyone tried something like this?
Hey Raymond -
If the number of target users is fixed, you could build this using the action framework. Given your description, I think you are wanting something more dynamic and unfortunately, there is no looping logic in the action framework yet (Skuid Team - Control structures added to framework would be awesome!).
Here’s my thoughts:
1) Have the user identify the “task to clone” using either a table, detail page, etc.
2) Once identified, trigger a popup that has the user select from a table of users
Hope this helps!
Thanks Barry! Your solution is a little different than what I had cobbled together mentally. I figured there would have to be a Java snippet in there somewhere as the number of users is indefinite. I turn into a big whiney baby when I hear Java! I found some code from another post on the community that I can use as a template. Thanks for your help. I’m going to post an idea to the community to add “iterate through model” to the action frame work. Thanks
Were you able to get it to work?
Thanks for check in! I have not attempted it yet. It is for a new org I’m building out. This functionality is not the highest priority so it will probably get bumped out a couple weeks. Thanks
You are probably right about java script. It isn’t that bad once you get into it, but the idea of stumbling through the beginning makes me cringe. Between Skuid and work flows and controllers and triggers I am hoping to skirt around the need for Java! “Here is my iterate through model action” idea: https://community.skuidify.com/skuid/topics/idea-iterate-through-model-in-action-framework .
