Topic: Inherit Field from Parent 

1.  Inherit Field from Parent

Posted 9 days ago
It is possible to do a calculated field on upstream items, but only if the result is mathematical in nature.  We include certain categories on parent items by selecting from a picklist, and we want the downstream linked/related items to inherit those values from the upstream object.  It would be great if there could be an addition to the calculated field "calculation types" to account for string functions.  At the very least a "concatenate" option would allow the string to be merged so all options selected are visible on the lower level item.  An even better function would be to "select all in picklist" so that the downstream item calculated picklist contains all the choices from the upstream items' picklist values.
