math / formulas?

In keeping track of a project, be it personal billing for consultants or a construction crew, it would be useful if user could -- for example -- create a formula property like $35*%x where %x = properties, etc.

So at the end user could focus on poject parent & in child pane with proper columns see:

Project date/time start | date/time end | hours | Rate | Total

Comments: Kinook, anyone?

Kinook, I don't even know if this is possible although I assume it is but no where on your radar.

I may be mis-reading you, but this seems to speak to the need for calculated fields (or calculated Attributes in UR parlance) and Summary Totals.

Yes I think that would be right. Does it already exist & I missed it? Or do u think the idea could be useful or what?

yes, and it should be possible ... sqlnotes, which is also based on a standard database, does that ...

Yes, this has been discussed before and I believe that it is on the road map.

Title attribute based on other attribute values

If it can be done for the Title, I don't see why other Attributes couldn't derive their value from a calculation. Essentially, expose more database functionality to the user.

Exactly!!!

(but in the same breath it has to be said that UR is already considered quite geeky in various forums, so I understand that maybe Kinook is trying to postpone such features)

Yes, I've seen the comments, but never fully understood why this was a negative, seems more of a testament to the power of the program.

Still, I think that this can be implemented without putting too much strain on the user. When I look at the Import interface, or the Forms builder, these are nice solutions.

I can imagine UR is considered geeky, but c'mon when you're paying for UR *Pro* that's no bad thing. Personally, it's not geeky enough for me, I only bought it for outlining (Logical Linking was the killer feature), now I'm wanting a Forms Designer (radio buttons, check boxes, hierarchical list boxes and grids please :-) ), calculated attributes, variable substitution in items and attributes (using Logical Links, natch) - but hey, one thing at a time!

UR Geek Edition, anyone?

Oooh, I know, a UR SDK

not marketable, real geeks don't know UR, cause they don't use M$ and Kinook doesn't plan to port it to other platforms ;-)

Hmm. Hadn't seen this thread yet (as I made a similar thread about this).

Anyway, I'd like to add my "voice of support" to this request .
