Hello Admin

J-cook is getting better with each update. It has reduced the development timeline by several "miles" with the introduction of the SQL importer. However, as is the nature of us end-users, we always reach for more.

Most projects contain a number of audit fields which repeat across tables. Linking these to cook-wizards can be time consuming and subject to oversight.

I would like to suggest a feature which displays a question like "would you like to apply this setting throughout this project?" If the developer says yes, the system repeats the action on the given field for all tables.

This may need refinement and any and all comments are welcomed, but these are my initial thoughts on how we can save even more time after importing a series of SQL tables and even throughout the cook-interface down the road.

Warm regards

I think this will complicate the interface.
Normally, if you instance the wizard (FIRST) it creates the fields automatically. (You talk about "Magic fields", right ?)
So this way you save your time and don't need to link the field afterwards.

I think even if some tables uses the same base (check-in, publish, creation date...), it is better to go trough every table to configure it correctly.
My aim is also to improve the user experience, but I am affraid this can complicate the interface (by setting more config). I don't see it possible right now.
Coding is now a piece of cake
