As we are trying to make sure one of our departments doesn;t start adding a lot of new cabinets and document trays without at least us being granted permissions, I found something sort of weird about document trays.
I just created three document trays, all with the name "Test", and all pointing to the same underlying file cabinet for default storage.
That is SUPER confusing, and I do not see how it should be allowed. There is no way to determine which cabinet is which when selecting it from the "Document trays" toolbar button, and the same goes for selecting a document tray for something like a Commect To Outlook storage target.
All three document trays are definitely their own entities, as I was able to place different documents in each and they stay separate.
For now, we are just doing our best to insure a "best practice" of specifically naming document trays, but why is this allowed? Anything user-facing should be unique within the DW system such that such confusion cannot be made manifest, no?
PS. I verified that you cannot duplicate the user-friendly name for file cabinets, something I was pretty sure of but actually had never tried... That is why I was surprised I could duplicate a document tray name.
