Spotlight - LED Screen Tool Should have a Per Panel weight.

Question

It would be great if I could put the per panel weight in a field for this and have the plug-in keep the total weight field correct based on the number of panels as things change,    It seems silly I have to have to manually calculate the total weight anytime the LED wall config changes.

Wesley -

 

Your request makes perfect sense.  At the same time, just shedding some light on why things are the way they are...:  Different users use the tool in different ways.  Some users create entire walls and see each "Module" as an individual panel.  For that application, "Module Weight" could then be used to calculate a total.  For other users, each instance represents a single panel (part of a wall) and "Weight," as it is now is the weight for that panel and having to know the weight for each module isn't really practical.  For this latter approach, users can then generate reports that can both track data for the individual panels (tool instances) as well as calculate weights.

 

Make sense??

Yes that makes sense.   As with anything,  the per panel weight shouldn't be the only way to calculate the weight,  but it would be great as an option.  Not forced    :-)

So, what's the emoji for having your own words thrown back at you...?  ;-)
