When adding Images to Items and Templates, there are certain restrictions on when they will automatically inherit to occurrences and template derivations. The table below explains when images will be inherited or can be added:
Images for Items and Derived Templates
Images automatically inherited
Images are not inherited as multiple occurrences can exist and are likely to be unique. For example, at the occurrence level you may want to show a picture of a chair with each occurrence having a different color.
Images are inherited because a child item becomes a unique item. Child items maintain a connection to the parent item.
Images are inherited as a derived template maintains a connection to the original template
Images automatically inherited can be deleted
New Images can be added
When adding documents to Items and Templates, there are certain restrictions on when they will automatically inherit to occurrences and template derivations. The tables below explains when documents will be inherited or can be added:
Documents for Items and Derived Templates
Documents automatically inherited
Documents are inherited as they are less likely to vary significantly between occurrences. For example, a PDF of a chair spec will apply to the item as well as all occurrences.
Documents are not inherited as children are separate items and can be different from the parent. For example, a PDF spec for a a chair may be uploaded to the parent item, whereas the PDF spec for a child item is a version of the chair with arms that is a separate document.
Documents are inherited as they are less likely to vary between an original template and the derived template. For example, space guidelines will apply to the room type.
