additional dynamic fields for groups

9 years 5 months ago #120097 by Shanduri2008
Hey, I was wondering if you were considering to have the option to add dynamic freestyle fields in the backend (on per site basis) which are visible when a group is created/edited? This would be useful for example to add additional grouping and searching capabilities such as by countries, group types, group status, or anything else really. This will greatly increase the flexibility of groupjive, and I can imagine some of the code already in use for CB could be plugged-in to achieve this functionality. Also how's the development moving forward, any chance for a stable release before February 2010?

Seems like a no/no :blush:

This is a key feature for my work. For my site, I need to collect specific information that will differ depending upon the groups category.

They would need to be standard fields (text, numeric, logical) but I would also need a pop-down selection loaded from a table that I would populate.

I would be willing to do this myself, if the api were available.

Any ideas on how this can be done?

Can't be done with current release; new GroupJive will feature triggers like CB (e.g. onAfterLogin) which can be used to add to groups, categories, etc...

In other words what you're wanting is doable with new GroupJive, but it is not yet released and do not have a release date.

Krileon,

Thanks very much for the update.

It would be really helpful if you could let give us (the GroupJive Potential Users) some idea of a release. I know it cannot be tied down, but something like Q1, Q2, 2011 etc.


Thanks again,

Tom
