Defaulting a value in Multiple reference control display field.
Version: 5.5 SP2 HF1
I have requirement to default a value (cross reference) in multiple
reference display control field. I don’t see an option to achieve this in field
This requirement is to enhance the user experience. Is there a way to achieve
this or am I missing anything?
Just an FYI that it is my understanding the the Idea Exchange out here has ZERO visibility back to the product teams. While it is great for formulating, discussing, and voting on things as a community, unless that is echoed back to Archer Support to log as an enhancement request, the project teams never know about it.
There is no automated linkage between top ideas and the project teams, between delivered ideas to set them as such out here, etc. You can see this is evident if you look at the list of COMING SOON items out there. Many of them have been available since 5.3 or 5.4 and are still in that status.
If you have an idea for Archer, email it to them so they actually know about it.
You will need to create an Archer to Archer datafeed using web services transporter. Source and Target application will remain same. Create a report in your application with key field and all the required fields. While loading the source fields in your datafeed, Add a new "Raw Text" value under Source definition. This raw text is the value which you want your XREF to default to. You can then map this raw text field to your target xref field.
My requirement is to default a value when user creates a new record. Datafeed may not be right option for me as it runs on Schedules. but it can be used in other scenario!
