Hierarchical / Cascading / Matrix Field Relationships

Avatar

Level 10

06-02-2019

The ability to have multiple fields in custom forms that are linked together in a relationship such as:

Choosing a value from Field 1 determines what is available to choose from Field 2.

For example:

Choosing a value from Category determines what can be chosen from Brand which can then determine what can be chosen from Sub-Brand.

This would be better than:

  • In the example above: a huge long list of choices in Brand and Sub-Brand in order to encompass all Categories and Brands.
  • In the example above: The workaround of having multiple "Brand" and "Sub-Brand" fields with hide/show conditionals plus awkward "ifblank" reporting concatenations.

Whether this was via the Builder or some more back-end method (like a Kickstart) is fine by me. I honestly think a matrix Excel uploaded via the backend might be "easier" and then just a Builder UI element that is dropped in and linked to the Excel data. But...I leave such issues to the developers. 🙂

I need this concept for my company's group->department->team organization (no relation to workfront's concept of groups and teams). We have people, requests, and projects that all need to relate to multiple teams. I don't want users to scroll through a massive list of teams.
