#155 new enhancement

Sorting trees or folders for trees

Reported by: guest Owned by: devel
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: ARB_NTREE Version:
Keywords: tree admin Cc:

Description

This is not a bug but a suggestion: The possibility to create folders for the trees calculated would be a very helpful feature. Having several projects at the same time it will finally either end up in different databases (I do not prefer this) or a mess in the tree administration.

Just my $0.02, but I think search & query does not replace hierarchical management. Search is good for finding, but folder structures are good for organizing. E.g. having normal folders is still sensible, even with a desktop search engine like spotlight. I wouldn't want to give it up.

So personally I think having folder based management, ideally for all objects including SAIs and "species", would still be a useful addition.

Replying to epruesse:

Yes.. would be. In fact we already have that (not for trees, but for generic items), since folders are just a special kind of attribute assigned to items - which is a key feature :).

A more general concept would be tags, where folders would just be a special case, only allowing one tag (the folder name) per item.

The question is how to use/present such a concept inside ARB..
