Master and detail mechanism for filecabinets
Today filecabinets only allow scalar fields for indexing documents.(Some exceptions as keyword fields, but that strategy does not comply)
It would be great to have the ability to have a master/detail concept. Allowing to store the information regarding the master document and its childs. INVOICEs are probably the best example, the filecabinet would allow to store data as PO number, total aumount, buyer info, etc (as it already does) and also in someway allow to store info about the ordered products info (SKU, unit, description, amount, etc).
Thank you for your idea.
We added it to our collection of ideas and features and will further investigate it. We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented. As soon as we have more information we will update its status.

This is exactly what I came here to suggest. My 3 latest customers all have a need for line item data storage. I had a phone call with a prospective customer last week that, within 2 minutes of being on the call, told me they would need to extract and store line item data with their invoices. Keyword fields do not cut it if you have multiple fields for this data as they will not keep entries lined up properly. Ideally there would be an expand/collapse option on the row in the result list that would show the "sub-rows".
