Re: How to create multiple list items from a module
If I use create action, I am able to create one item at a time, with create action I am not able to create bulk list items like 10 or 15 list items
let me explain you what my approach was, Created a module and it has count(1 to 20) as dimension and required fields as line items to enter the data includes code and parent , D6 as drop down line item, created an import action by using anaplan connect( module to list ), by using this I can create multiple list members but requirement is D6 should be automatically populated when I select a particular D6( lower level) inside the line item which I have taken as dropdown, If I am able to capture the D6 in the dropdown then i can enter the data and run the import and the fields would be flowing to the list.
Correct, the Create action only allows you to create one at a time. Another way, which is more manual, is to click the blue check at the top right of the module and select Edit -> Insert.
If you don't want to do that (which I can understand why you wouldn't), you can create a module dimensionalized by D6 and a "Row Count" list of 1-20. In the lines of 1-20, you put the information needed to build the hierarchy, using a combination of user inputted data and formulas. Then, create a view that only has the data needed to be loaded to the hierarchy (member, code, parent), and create an action to load the data.
Let me ask you this as I am unclear, when and what data should "D7" be populated with? Meaning, is it from a data load or from the User?
How many records would they need to load, are you talking about 5 or 100? Either way, the 2nd paragraph (the one where you dimensionalize the rows with D6) should work out for you. The process would be, the user inputs data, clicks a button, and then the D7 list is populated with the information they entered.
At present they are creating the list items by using a list which is there on the dashboard, but it is inefficient as few features wont work for a list, My idea is we can give them option to enter upto 20 records at a time, if they required more we can do by following your approach,
