@arti4ever If I am understanding your feature request correctly, the “automatic variable” feature is already underway. I agree that the current Groups feature is still missing a few things, and I think the next release of groups will address your concerns. We’re almost done with an update to the Groups feature that will include a “criteria” feature where you can apply a filter to all plants and dynamically update a group’s content based on search matches. It will allow you to set arbitrary criteria such as “All points where type is ___”, “All plants within box X/Y/Z”, “All plants tagged as a weed”, etc… This feature is nearly complete and we are in the process of doing final QA on it before it is released.
can’t create groups for “points” … adding groups functionality to “points” and “weeds” could be great.
If I am understanding correctly, this will be possible with the next release of Groups. As mentioned, this feature is nearly complete and is undergoing internal quality testing. I have included some screenshots of the release we are testing to give you an idea of how it will look.
I’ve attached some screenshots of the feature as it is currrently being tested. We will announce the release soon on our newsletter.
