I'm a new user, so forgive me if this question is atrociously stupid:
Like elenavezz, I have been looking for a way to link two related items. I wondered if the "Relation" field in "Tropy Generic" might provide a tool for doing this, but it doesn't. (What is it for, actually?)
The larger goal here is to use Tropy as a collection management system suitable for cataloguing work by one or more artists.
Step one would be to create custom metadata templates, say one for "Works of Art," a second for "Collections" and a third for "Reference Works." Ideally, "Collection" and "Reference" fields in the first template could then be linked to the relevant items in those tables using "is related to."
It should be possible to approximate this functionality using tags, by tagging each work with the appropriate collection and references. This would also permit a reverse search, ie. searching on a collection tag to get a list of works in that collection.
But it would be great if this functionality could be built into metadata fields.
Please let me know if there is already a way to do this.
