Recently I was asked to extend Edit in List to allow for bulk Log Comments and Manual notifications.  This was a fun challenge and thought I would share it with the community.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. (A code review would be a plus ).


Warning: This is not supported by CA and may cause performance issues if large amounts of activities are generated at once.

Implementation Steps:

  1. Schema Changes
    1. Add zLogComment to CR Schema
      1. Name: zLogComment
      2. Field Type: String
      3. Length: 4000
    2. Add zManualNotify to CR Schema
      1. Name: zManualNotify
      2. Field Type: String
      3. Length: 4000
    3. Save and Publish Schema Changes
    4. Unzip zCRALG.zip and move the spl and mod files to nx_root/site/mods/magic
    5. Use the provided list_in.htmpl (from 14.1.02) or reference the file to see where the modifications for the Edit in List and grid column sections were made.
      1. Modified list_in should be placed in nx_root/site/mods/www/htmpl/web/analyst or a form group sub directory
    6. Shutdowns services and run pdm_publish (Perform promotion steps to standby if applicable)
    7. Start services and test
    8. Enjoy having happier analysts!
