I’m currently trying to use AnyType to create an easy-to-fill invoice generator, by having a template showing relevant data from related object and then using the print feature to generate a PDF invoice.
As an example, I have an Invoice object, with a relation to a Human (Customer) where I’ve added some more relations such as Address, ZipCode, City etc.
Apart from Formulas that could come handy to calculate the invoice total, I feel I’m missing something to display customer data in the invoice, as it only shows the relation name while I’d like to show its address/city/zip code.
What I’m thinking of, from a developer point of view, is to have something like relationName.subrelationName or in my case /Customer.Address or @Customer.Address that would allow rendering subrelations as plain text (or as links to the subrelation itself).
I’d love this, especially in sets. I’m trying to track projects for clients, and one thing I was to have is a task list, where it shows all the undone tasks, then the following columns: Task.Priority, Project, Project.ProjectType, Project.Client.
I don’t think this is possible yet, though. Nested (or whatever) relations aren’t supported yet.
