Idea: Add "Type" to the Import Relationships Plugin

  • 1.  Idea: Add "Type" to the Import Relationships Plugin

    Posted 03-26-2015 13:05
    When using the Import Relationships Plugin, in order to have control over the relationship Type created on import, it is believed one needs to alter the default type (as Admin) to import anything beside the default.

    In concept, adding the relationship type in some form as the third field in the imported CSV would get around the need for Admin access, and changing the default type which could affect other users.

    We've talked about this over the phone I believe, so thanks for bringing it up here. I agree that it would be nice—but I also think we're working on some other ways of relating items rather than focus on updates for the current one-by-one in the GUI or the static option of the plugin. We'll see what comes in the next few months!
