Status Under Consideration

Allow embedded views to use multiple categories instead of single category.

Could help eliminate unnecessary views in older dbs.  Also allow for data types other than text and expose property to assign db to embedded view.

    Assign DB to embedded view is important for:

    1. Installable application - because we don't know production DB ReplicaID in development environment.
    2. Enhance functionality - when we could choose exact DB for embedded view based on user context or user input.


    Multiple categories in embedded views is another request. It's hard to implement because:

    • Documents could be presented in more than one category. What we should do with duplicates - exclude them or represent them each time as they presented in each category?
    • Documents are sorted in under each category. The categorized view subcategories column sort is an option of the view index which is stored on server. What we should do with subcategories sorts in merged list?

    I think each of the problems should be addressed to application developer. It would be good to see an option in the embedded view configuration for each of above questions.
