job characteristics MAX dropdown list

[ Edited ]

Dear,

 

when creating a new routing rule there is an option to add a job characteristic. Whenever i select 'MAX' i get every single max option from all my edit: workflows Hotfolders?

id rather see the MAX settings from the hotfolder that is pointing towards the workflow i'm currently working in, and if none Hotfolder is mapped to the current workflow, then display everything?

 

should make looking trough MAX values a breeze, while now its a big scrollfest (in safari i can't even scroll trough the silverlight interfaces, sigh.......). 

 

love to hear the response.

Re: job characteristics MAX dropdown list

I understand the frustration -- especially the safari scrolling. When building a workflow there is no hot folder associated with the workflow. Hence all the MAX characteristics need to be selectable. I am guessing after a hotfolder(s) has been associated with a workflow you would like to see the MAX characteristics limited.

 

This could get messy operationally -- one sees certain characteristics a workflow build time and a limited set afterwards. What happens if one wants to use/update the workflow for another hotfolder and additional MAX characteristics?

"I am guessing after a hotfolder(s) has been associated with a workflow you would like to see the MAX characteristics limited."
yes that would work perfectly ^

"one sees certain characteristics a workflow build time and a limited set afterwards." this is the whole problem, i can select things that are not available in my hotfolder...

"What happens if one wants to use/update the workflow for another hotfolder and additional MAX characteristics?"
i think the same what happens now, the max list gets updated with the values that are added in the selected hotfolder?

i might use freeflow core not as intended :P but i have a 1 workflow 1 hotfolder rule, since it doesn't really make sense to use multiple hotfolders for 1 workflow, but that could just be my setup.
