Is there a way to link lists to filter items in custom fields?

Added by Jason Cameron over 11 years ago

Hi,

Is there a way to link lists in Redmine to filter items in custom fields? The simplest example would be this:

You have two custom fields: Country and Province. Depending on what you select in the Country Field a different set of provinces is populated in the Province Field.

Thanks in advance,

M

Anyone?

I'm still pretty new at RoR but I'm pretty sure it's possible. I just want to link two related drop-down lists.

Thanks in advance,

Hello?

Barring that can it be done via a plug-in? I've got a bit of RoR under my belt so I'm going to try and do just that. It seems pretty simple but that could just be me.

Here's a 'real-world' example that our current software does right now. We have one drop-down list that filters another one.

The first drop-down is called Product and the second is called Module. It's set up more or less like this.

Product
-------
ITR
Jam App
Web Wing

Module Product
------ -------
Accounting ITR
Security ITR
Security Web Wing
Configuration ITR
Jam App MediaLibrary
Templates Web Wing

Ok so the first list filters the second one so if the user selects 'ITR' in the first drop down list (Product) then the second (Module) would be populated with Accounting, Security and Configuration. If 'Web Wing' is selected then the 'Module' list is populated with Security and Templates.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm just so everyone knows it's a requested feature and it's not there (yet).

Oh well. I'm going to look at plugins and see if it can be implemented through there. My RoR is still pretty basic though.

Wish me luck.
