Create a template based on a record from another collection

Allow a metadata creator to create a template based on a record from any collection assigned to his/her user account.



The current release (R5.2.1) on the production server allows metadata creator to create a template based on a resource record in a specific collection, and the template is available to use within this collection.

Currently, the template functionality is tied to a collection. I am assuming that you want the capability to create a template from any collections and not tie the template to a specific collection.

For example:

A user created a resource record A in Collection A.
Now the user wants to use resource record A to create a template in Collection B.

Did I get this right?

Also add the capability to build a template on top of a template. See Grace's example:

It is painful to add standard technical and rights metadata to a new template for a series of videos, but more painful to use a generic template that is not specific to the series. If you look at the collection level templates, Video Mosaic (core template) and X (series specific template) you will see what I mean.

Templates created at collection level are available in all collections now -- at least to me. Please confirm.


I as a super user can see all the resources. I need someone else to test this.
