Document Management, How do you filter folder records

on 5/14/13, 12:41 PM 1,212 views

I am trying to create a folder for employees for each department in the Document Management System. I can make an employees folder based on the "Employee" resource model that contains all employees, but that is cumbersome with hundreds of employees. I need to be able to create a folder for each department and have the employees belonging to that department in the corresponding folder.

Please direct me to more detailed documentation concerning filtering by domain(syntax example??) or the parent model/ resource ID(whichever one(or both) is the correct way to do it).

I also cannot figure out how to make the Resource ID editable.

I finally figured out how to accomplish my task.

To filter employees by department:

Create a directory with the type "folder per resource" For the Domain filter I used

[('department_id','=','Business Development')]

Where "department_id" is the field I am using to filter and "Business Development" is the name of the department.

Find all resources is checked.

I found "Expressing a search domain (args)" description at this weblink(I can't insert links yet)
