Are there any updates on this by chance? I’m needing the same functionality.
In my case, I have an Entry thing that a user can submit, and all users can see all Entries. A user can create a new Entry based off someone else’s entry, and I’d like to be able to keep track of those as “batches”.
The way that I was thinking I could do that was to have a global Batch count, and allow for an Entry to have a Batch field. The functionality would then be:
- Each time a new Entry was created from scratch, it updated its Entry -> Batch field to be the current global Batch number
- the global Batch number would get incremented
- Each time any existing Entry got used to create a new Entry, the new Entry would set its Entry -> Batch field to equal the Entry -> Batch field of the existing Entry it is being based on
This would allow for all Entries to be properly grouped by their Batches.
Is there a way to create a global Batch count? And then use & increment it in the app by different users? And if not, is there any other way to set up the type of grouping I need?
