[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Rapid Data Entry Error

I kept poking at it after I posted (like you do… like *I* do) and discovered that if I did not remove columns until all were filled in and all rows added that I could keep on, but as soon as I added a row, there was the issue. I also was under the misapprehension that it had to do with changing the level of description… nope! Wonky though and through. 


Thanks, Lora

Hi Jessica,


This seems related to the RDE bug I reported back in November.  See: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1362  That remains unresolved and in the icebox, it appears.


We were encountering more and more “quirks” with RDE templates as we started using them more regularly at my former institution.  The template feature is a great enhancement, but I’m certain there are a lot of bugs still lurking there.  Hopefully as more of these quirks are documented, they’ll be remedied.

Hi folks,

I’m working on a container list in Rapid Data Entry. I am changing the level of description from File to Item after I’ve added the rows I want to add, and several things happen that seem very glitchy and weird:

Note-  I am using a template and hiding rows that are repeating. 

·         I can no longer add Title information to rows 2-5 

·         The Date Type field is no longer a drop down menu

·         Language has taken over the Begin Date field

·         It lists 27 columns visible, and rows 2-5 now show all the columns I’d removed via the template, I assume. 


I’ve attached a screen cap to illustrate.
