I have this on the demo server for groups, try it out.  I will add it for stems too.


If you want them different, you can check the checkbox…

I was thinking simplistically to just populate the text box with the value from the name.  should the user move to the ID field and fill in a different value - use that value.  I was hoping it keeps it simple looking and intuitive.  i do appreciate the checkbox approach but it does complicate the UI.  i leave it to your good judgment.  Either way, i’m good.

> It is somewhat annoying to have provided a GroupID/FolderID.  We believe by default it should be set to the same name as the group/folder since this is what everyone does.  It is rare it set to a different value.  It would be really nice if this enhancement could be made for the 2.2.0 release as it would greatly aid in the simplified use of creating groups/folders for our users.
