Allow tag creation with a pre-defined format

(Remy Dev) #1

I would like to know if it is possible to allow the creation of tags in some form such as serial number XX0000000000.

I don’t think it’s necessary to create all serial numbers directly (more than 10,000), but it makes searching much easier if the subjects are tag with the serial number.
So I would like to allow the user to create the number they need.

Is it possible and even more does that sound like a good idea to you ?

I know that there will be errors in temp to temp numbers but it’s not very important… it is more of a search functionality

Sure. You can create whatever tags you want, and allow users to create tags (search settings for “tag”). It’s hard to imagine how that’s easy, but if your users love referring to long numbers, go for it.

Thanks for your replay,
I mean, I wish force the 12 character format for the user.
I think I need a specific development?

I see. You’d need a plug in or to create them up front.

Have you considered how difficult it’ll be for users to select among so many tags? It’s hard to imagine that anyone would be willing to do so. This seems like a really horrible idea.
