Once I've set up a single classification for some variable in the Admin UI, I should be able to just add a new column in my SAINT template to introduce any new classifications thereafter. I should not have to go back into the Admin/suite/classifications UI to simply adda  new entry every time.

This is very risky. If a user thinks he needs to tweak the file, he will create new classifications.

Maybe I'm missing something. Why is that risky? A new classification is just a new view of existing data that cannot be harmed. I mean, what is at risk?

Sorry, maybe risky was the wrong word.

It depends on the user structure. Here the users are allowed to upload a predefinded set of campaign classifications. If everyone could create new classification, it could be a mess of templates and reports available. Maybe user A would upload his template with 4 classifications and User B would only upload his 3 classifications.

So it's not harmful for existing data, it just may change your available reports and their content.

So if you have all SAINT users close to you, that might be beneficial, but dealing with users worldwide, they might get too creative Smiley Wink
