Automatic Processes in Trim for Users

I was wondering if there is a way to automate and combine steps that users do in Trim to complete an

action into a process or procedure.

 

One example I have in mind is the printing of a report listing records for a selected creator sorted by date registered.  In order to print this report you would have to:

 

                        1)   Create the search and run the search (sorting by date registered)

                        2)  Tag all records

                         3)  Go to Print Report

                         4)  Select all tagged records

                         5)  Select the appropriate report

                         6)  Print report

 

Is there a way to automate these 6 steps into a procedure where the user only has to input the creator's name which would be in the locations table, hit enter, and the report would be produced?    Or is this a software enhancement request just waiting to be written?

 

Any ideas on this topic would be helpful.

 

Thanks.

There's no way to automate this within the TRIM environment.  Though I could write you a quick utility or record add-in that did it for you.

I'd write some code against the SDK!  :smileyhappy:
