The new "Document Type Collection" would be a fantastic time-saver - if matching templates were also created.
Agreed! It would be lovely to have 2 checkboxes added to the create dialog. A quick (terrible) mockup is attached.
@sebastiaan is it not a beter UX if we make it inside the create dialog? Just like the screenshot I have added?
@mvanhelmont I can see why you'd suggest that, in terms of UX consistency... but how would we handle "I want a template for the child doctype, but not for the parent doctype" or vice-versa? We'd then need 4 additional options (No templates, both templates, child template only, parent template only), which starts to get confusing.
I think it would be better from a consistency perspective to just have three options in the create dialog (Document Type, Document Type Collection, Folder), and put a "Create a template" check box on the "Document Type" dialog and two on the "Document Type Collection" dialog.
I agree @hfloyd! 👍 The current old UX is a bit wonky! :-)
@hfloyd a i see that's a beter way indeed. have maybe a beter mockup version also making the toggle labels generic. Was a bit weird when the textbox where empty.
I think that looks good, @mvanhelmont
Now we just need someone who knows Angular to build it ;-)
@hfloyd I am currently working on a pull request
Currently the templates are checked by default if it need changed then I can change the PR.
