How to use Relationship Status?

  • 1.  How to use Relationship Status?

    Posted 10-05-2016 03:44
    Hello,
    I got a request from our user to allow filtering based on the relationship status. Unfortunately I do nor understand why / how to use relationship status.
    I read https://community.jamasoftware.com/jama/topics/how-to-use-relationship-rules">https://community.jamasoftware.com/jama/topics/how-to-use-relationship-rules">https://community.jamasoftware.com/jama/topics/how-to-use-relationship-rules
    but there is no information how to use it or what is the purpose.

    Please can you provide me explanation how to use relationship status? Is it anyhow connected with relationship status indicator?

    Thank you
    Vlada

    Vlada, there are two different Status indicators for relationships. The first does pertain to the rules, in that the item would be out of compliance with the rules and have an orphan, be missing downstream, etc. Carmen posted an article">https://community.jamasoftware.com/jama/topics/functionality-of-the-relationships-status-indicator">article detailing this use. There is also the Status">http://help.jamasoftware.com/relationshipsettings.htm">Status available on the Relationships widget. I honestly haven't heard of folks using this one, so I doubt this is the one your user is referring to...

    However, it would be helpful to find out for sure which Status the user is referring to. I imagine it is the relationship status; it'd be helpful to know if the user is concerned with suspect or orphan items, in terms of filtering.

    Hi Kristina,

    The second case is correct. The team was speaking about Status as showed in the attached picture.

    Thank you

    Hey Vlada,

    Thanks for checking in on that. This particular Status field doesn't have much for functionality; because it's not a field, it's not visible in filters or reviews.

    Hi Kristina,

    I agree. Do you plan to remove this functionality in the future? You know, when there is some functionality people definitely invent how to use it even it does not make sense...

    HA. That is so definitely true. But as far as removing it goes, there's nothing planned. The conversation was essentially, "yes, that feature needs to be improved or killed," but both of those are incredibly low priorities.

    Hi Kristina,
    Follow up question. Is it safe to remove Relationship status from Pick Lists? Will it somehow affect Jama functionality?

    Thank you for your answer
