Link custom fields with a category and define column sets

Having used VueMinder for a while, it seems like the ability to do a couple of things would be handy.

One would be the ability to link custom fields with a category. Only when that category is applied would the associated custom fields appear in the editor window.

Another would be the ability to define a set of columns along with their order and quickly apply it to a list.

I don't know if anyone else would find those things useful.

Hi there,

I've been looking at VueMinder as a possible solution for my business, and have been doing a bit of exploring to see if it would really fulfil my needs. In fact the functionality that JimS suggests is precisely what I would need to manage my contacts and events. I work in the music industry and deal with many different categories of contacts - music artists, festivals, venues etc. For a festival (i.e. an organisation, not a person), for example, it would be necessary to know in what period of the year it normally takes place, so a field for this information would be very useful. If I had a project I was selling and its touring period was August, I would want to filter and view the promoters and festivals that took place in August so that I could target them directly. Fields I would need for a venue would be things like audience capacity, or a Y/N option if they promote events themselves or are only for hire, etc. For music artists: what instrument they play.

Is there any developing functionality along these lines since JimS posted?

Hi Bulgakov, welcome to the forums and thank you for the feedback. This suggestion is still on my to-do list. I'll give it a higher priority and I'll post a reply when it's completed.
