Item Remote Update

Remote Element Update is a gh element that allows the user to update the selected field with a reference to the current element. It is designed to update the Item Reference field, namely to replace the current value with a reference to the element in which the gh-element is located.

Functional Characteristic

This element can be used in conjunction with the Item Remote Add, which allows you to add items that are already linked to other items. The current gh-element allows users to remotely change a reference in the certain field. For example, if an Item Reference is used to specify the task performer, you can change the reference from the performer item.

Value Format

This element does not contains any value.

Element Options

Item Remote Update has two blocks of settings.

Field And Destination Reference Settings

As usual, the first block contains standard Field Settings and Destination Reference Settings, which consists of various additional settings.

This setting consists of two buttons for editing and deleting the option.
