It would save time to not have to always go back to the modules tab and assign a functional area if I could do it upon creating the module, which seems sensible!
As a model builder, I would like to be able to set the Functional Area from the 'New Module' menu that appears after clicking ' + Insert Module' from the Settings area.
This would increase ease of keeping the model organized as it is being created, rather than having to specify Functional Area in the settings area after the fact.
There is plenty of room to the right of the 'Enter module name' box, and it could appear very similarly to the 'Functional Area' dropdown that appears when you select 'New Dashboard' from a View > Publish to Dashboard option.
I have attached a mock up of what I think it could look like, but it could definitely appear differently.
Straight forward, simple. Great idea.
Yes, yes, yes
And whilst we're at it, let's add a DISCO classification too
@NoahJI think I raised this recently;
Nice mock-up and whole-heartedly agree, would make cleaning up functional areas redundant if you could do this in the first instance!
We should combine the two requests if possible
@CallumW - great minds think alike? 🙂 Apologies for redundant posting, I had attempted to search for the others but looks like I was not successful. I'm all for combining the posts however that happens.
Hi @CallumW, @DavidSmith, @NoahJ,
We've gone ahead and merged the ideas.
@NoahJ- not a problem, I'm glad to see someone else had the same idea! Hopefully we get to see this change implemented soon.
@DavidSmith- thanks for the merge shout-out!
Yes please!!! Designating the functional area during module setup will not only save the step of having to return to the model tab, but will also simplify setup in the contents section.
Any updates on this idea? Seems like there was a healthy amount of support, and would definitely help instill better habits in model builders.
