Embedded view Show Multiple Category

Currently for embedded view there is an option to show single category. In which the matching category is shown in embedded view.

On many occasions there is a requirement  to show multiple categories for example when designing a form to show task on my desk, there are documents in which the current user have rights based on his notes name, groups he belong to or roles he has in the application.

Show single category does not full fill the requirements as we want to see all documents where current approve is defined as notes Name or group name or user role.

Having an embedded view with show multiple category will solve the problem, where giving a multi value field will show the matching categories

    It can easily implement this idea by passing in the formula for the embedded view a list of keys - "key1":"key2":"keyn", which correspond to the columns of the view.

    If you combine the key from several columns you can not use the existing views, you need to create many additional views, which greatly increases the load on the Indexer.

    In theory you can just manipulate the first column formula to concatenate all the values into a single string. You can even add another category on the second column for display purposes.

    However since you did mention an example about current user name / Group Name / Roles the above method would not work because there is no way to break down group / row membership into user names on formula. What I have done is to use a different embedded view if user is part of a certain group / role.
