Differences in Applying Additional Fields between 6.2 and 7.1

Hi There,

 

We're in the process of preparing for upgrade from 6.2 to 7.1. I've noticed that applying additional fields seems to have changed between versions. It appears to be worse in 7.1 - in that you can't simply select the record types to which the additional field applies (see attachment).

 

I might be missing something, but I'd have thought that selecting all the record types a field applies in one go is better then going to each record type and adding the additional field...

 

Any reason / workaround?

 

Thanks.

Interesting, I hadn't seen this change yet.

It was obviously intentional from R&D, otherwise there wouldn't be a message there advising to apply the fields in Tools > Record Types.

 

I cannot find a CR that details this change, so I'm not sure why they did it.

If you log a support case with HP, we'll be able to raise this with R&D since it does make applying the field to multiple record types more time consuming.
