Currently, advanced download criteria works great for records the work order is related to, such as the account, installed product or case. These are all upwards in the relationship, because the work order looks up to the account or case etc.
This idea is to make this work for records lower down in the relationship, which appear as related lists on the work order and are records that lookup to the work order.
For example, we have a number of objects related to a work order (lookup relationships, not master-detail), that I want to be able to download via advanced download criteria. You can see here the related lists on the work order layout:
But we are unable to configure advanced download criteria to do this, so have had to implement a workaround that means new formula fields on each object (a download to mobile flag), and then had to create standard download criteria with a custom expression for each:
This would have all been avoided if advanced download criteria could work with objects related to a work order (which are not master detail relationships!)
What is the underlying problem do you intend to solve with this idea?
Ease of configuration
How is the problem being addressed today, if at all?
