RFE: Automatically tag/untag topics with Spec.<Spec ID> tag
Last modified: 2014-10-19 19:00:38 EDT
At the moment I tag the topics in my content spec with the "name of the book".
This allows me to locate the topics in the content spec with a Skynet filter.
What would be useful is this:
A category called "Spec Inclusion", which has tags that correspond to SPEC IDs.
When a content spec is pushed to the server, if a tag does not exist for that Spec, then one is created. All topics in that spec have the tag for that spec applied.
If topics are removed from a spec (this would probably require comparison with the last version of the spec), then the tag for that spec is removed from the topic.
This would allow me to look at any topic in the repository and tell which specs it is included in. This would be extremely useful in a number of cases:
* When editing a topic, it is important to see what all the consequences of the edit will be
* When a critical flaw is identified in one book, all books that contain that flaw (that topic) can be quickly identified and rebuilt
It would also allow me to reliably filter topics based on a content spec.
You are aware that there is a Search Feature that will list all of the topics in a content specification right? Have a look at the Search->Fields->Is Included In Content Spec attribute. (Note: it can only take one content specification)
As for the rest of it I'll look later and comment then.
Nope, didn't know that! Thanks, I'll add it to the guide.
So that covers finding "all topics in Spec X"
The other consequence of this RFE is the ability to look at a given topic and say with certainty:
"This topic is in Specs X, Y, and Z"
Marking this as a duplicate of #831910 even though this was technically first, only because #831910 is the bug we've been linking to.
