Assign action in NUX – the ability to review already assigned elements only

Context menu of Assign action in Classic UX allows users to see all the list elements already assigned to the selected parent element in one place - the right panel (Screenshot 1). This view is very convenient for many users.

At the same time, in the Assign action menu in NUX already assigned elements are displayed together with all other elements, and there is no option to hide unassigned elements (Screenshot 2). For example, your assigned element can be the last item in a large product hierarchy and you may not notice that it is already assigned before the action is finished. It would be great if a possibility to see only assigned elements is added to the context menu.

As an option, this feature can be implemented as a special filter button which hides all unassigned elements (Screenshot 3). Or an extra tab containing only assigned elements can be added to the Assign action menu as a second step of action before finalizing (Screenshot 4).

  • A must-have feature! Fully support it!

  • Would a workaround like the below meet the requirement? In this example, I've set up a list filter for the Assign action that allows showing items that have not been assigned to anything.

  • @ryan_kohn, Thank you for the suggested workaround! In some cases it can be really helpful.

    Unfortunately, it’s not applicable for our case. We wanted to make it possible to see the list elements already assigned to the selected parent element. At the same time, your method only allows to see elements assigned to any parent items (or not assigned at all).
