is it possible to edit a thing in a repeating group (RG) that is created in a different data type than it was originally taken from? If yes does anyone know how?
My example is:
- RG shows Courses (Attendees Names from data type COURSE)
- Select the attendance status from dropdown (yes, no)
- Click Button “Create” to create thing (with fields attendees name; status; current date) on data type LESSONS.
My issue is:
The user needs to be able to EDIT the status in the repeating group.
As the Status is saved only on the Lesson not on the Course for EDIT I need to access a different data type than which is used in the repeating group.
As I understood the technology, I cannot use autobinding, as this only works for things having the same data source as the repeating group.
I was thinking to hide the Save button after Save and add a edit button next to the status field which opens a popup and on save the workflow is started that makes changes to the lesson record.
Is this a valid approach or does anyone have an idea how to accomplish this?
