Change suggestion element when linking occurrences

edited July 2013 in Feedback
I'm wondering if there is a way to change which element is displayed in the drop-down suggestion list when linking an object and occurrence. For instance, when linking an occurrence to an object, I want to search for existing occurrences records by ca_occurrences.idno, and this works in that it narrows the suggestion to the proper occurrence that I'm looking for, but it displays the ca_occurrences.preferred_label element instead. How can this be changed?



  • Hi, this can be easily changed. In app.conf, navigate to 'Related item lookup settings'

    and simply change:

    ca_occurrences_lookup_settings = [^ca_occurrences.preferred_labels]
    ca_occurrences_lookup_delimiter = ➔


    ca_occurrences_lookup_settings = [^ca_occurrences.idno]
    ca_occurrences_lookup_delimiter = ➔
  • Brilliant!

    Thank you
