Related Links: Bug Report & 2 Feature Requests

Reported by Metta Zetty | March 24th, 2018 @ 09:08 PM | in

Bug Report:
It appears the numerical count of related (attached) links has disappeared throughout doogiePIM
-- When I initially started using the app a few days ago, the related links tab included a very helpful display of the number of related (attached) links on my tasks, contacts, etc.

-- However, now this numerical display no longer seems to be available.

Feature Requests:
(1) Could we have a column in the task list indicating the presence (and/or number) of attached links?

(2) Would it be feasible to have the option of adding URL links throughout DPIM? For example, adding attached links (URLs) to documents, calendar events, journal entries, etc.?

    Update re: Feature Request #2:
    -- Just now realized the "Bookmarks" option is the way we are to add URL links to items in other modules.

    Apologies for missing the obvious. :-)

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Status: Awaiting further information

    Related Links Count:
    Under investigation.

    Feature Requests:
    1. Link Count as a Data List Column
    That would require a longer development time as it requires a structure change to the database schema. I've added the feature to my schedule but can't say for sure which version it will be implemented in.

    1. URLs to records.
      Throughout doogiePIM, each record has a unique URL. You can get this URL from the Edit menu. Copy Item's Internal URL. This command will give you a URL to the selected record, stored in the clipboard. You can use this to Add a New Bookmark then paste that URL into the edit window, Save. You now have a permanant link to that record via the bookmarking system.

    The URL can also be used inside a rich text document as a hyperlink to a record. You will find many linking gems like this as you delve further into doogiePIM.

    Thanks again for your prompt feedback.

    Related Links Count Bug:
    -- I appreciate you taking a closer look at this

    Feature Request #1:
    -- Thank you very much for considering this enhancement. I realize it may take some time to implement, but it will be very helpful! :-)

    Feature Request #2:
    -- Apologies for not making this clear initially: I was originally referred to adding links to WEB SITE URLs, rather than adding links to items internal to the database. For this purpose, using the Bookmarks module will work. However, it would be simpler, easier and quicker (from the end user standpoint) to just add the web url to the database item directly -- rather than having to create a separate bookmark first. I hasten to add, I realize this may not fit with your intended design for doogiePIM, in which case, using the bookmark feature is doable (if a bit more time consuming).

    -- As for creating internal links within the database, this is one of the features that originally caught my eye, and I already rely on it quite heavily. For me, this is an invaluable (essential) feature, and I'm thrilled you've made it so simple and easy to add these internal links. :-)
