Custom fields

Recommended Posts

Nelisw79

Hi!

can anyone tell me if it’s possible to create custom fields? I want to add a possibility to check resources and status of a person. For instance: research finished or birthcertificate found. It would give me a lot of help in upgrading my family history.

You can add a Custom Event in TNG Admin ------> Custom Events

Then you can search them with a Report, or using the Advanced Search

Nelisw79,

 

All roads lead to Rome.

Roger's option using the Custom Events is a very good solution too.

The choice you make depends on what you are looking for as an outcome and how flexible you want the outcome to be.

The option I use (Notes) allows me to filter all notes containing the word "complete" or "Reliability" or any other  text I choose.

It's pretty straight forward and doesn't allow a custimized format as an outcome.

What you are looking for can also  be acclomplished by creating a Custom Event.

Choosing this option requires you to use the Reports function from within TNG.

It's a flexible solution that gives you many options to create your own customized reports.

Do take a look at Category:Reports - TNG_Wiki (lythgoes.net) if you go for Roger's option.

No, you can also search the Custom Events from the Advanced Find screen - click the "Other Events" at the bottom of the screen to expand out a list of all your custom events, then do your search on the relevant one.

looked in to both options.

Custom events: if i add a custom event and add it to a person, the filter results won't show all the people that havent got this event. It will only show the persons who have this event added.

Filter on notes: I don't see an option to filter for notes. Do i have to build this in custom SQL?
