I am wondering if there is an enahnced Macro that will update data in multiple locations regardless of where the updat is entered.
Example: I have a source/base page with a multiexcerpt designated on it, say for a date in a schedule. I am pulling that date with the multiexcerpt include function to 2+ separate pages. Currently I can only update the source/base page to populate the other pages.
Is there a way to set up a macro to where I could update the date on any of the three linked pages and it would update accross all of the pages?
Thanks Davin. Would you have to create a whole now page/template or would there be a ConiForms macro that would be used in place of the Multiexcerpt and Multiexcerpt include macros? I am looking for a solution that could be easily integrated into our current forms/templates.
If I understand your use case correctly you could create a ConfiForm on one page that would actually hold the data that you want to be editable from multiple pages. Then on the other pages you would add a ConfiForm view macro that would display the data from the source page ... along with an edit button that would allow you to update the data on the source page. You could put the view/edit macro on as many pages as you want and since they all edit the one data source the same value would be shown on all the pages.
I would suggest installing the ConfiForms add-on into your system with the 30-day trial and then you could evaluate if it would do what you need. It's not a free add-on, but the price point is pretty reasonable for all the things that it is capable of doing. What I have described above is only a small subset of the many things that ConfiForms can do.
Okay, thanks Davin. I will give the trial a shot. Just to ensure I am understanding, say I have a source Coniform data set that is populating to 3 separate pages via the view/edit macro. Could I make changes to any of those 4 pages (including the data source) and the value would populate accross all locations? The intent on this is for schedules to ensure key dates are being pulled through. Not all dates are needed in all locations so I would construct each page as needed using the macro.
