Template reports plugin : add ability to list relations without link the element

Hello,

I expect to be clear.
In TEMPLATE REPORT, we can get linked elements from project for instance.
I mean : if i build a template from project, it is possible to use linked elements to add a list of risks or questions.
But you NEED to link these elements to the project and can't just use the relation between project and risks or questions.

ie : when creating a risk, you need to link to project (and the field is MANDATORY), so, list of risks for a project is usable and creating link via "linked elements" is redundant.

IT could be an evolution, but you request ot add Risks, another one will request to add actions, or descisions.
So pissibly it should be possible to add all items... not so simple.
Moreover, we would list all items (risks, or actions, or else) and soon will come the request to show only the 5 last ones, or the 5 more important ones, or only of a selected type...
This would become a full Report Editor.
So yes, it is a very good idea, but possibly not purpose of Template Report.

Thanks for answer.

So, if you want to link elements, you must specify them specifically.
However, most of the time (at least in my case but it seems to me that it is not specific), it is necessary to have access to all the elements that have already been linked to the project.
Sometimes, there are indeed too many linked elements and, in this case, we will try to reduce the displayed elements.
Wouldn't it be easier to be able to list them all, at the user's expense to delete superfluous data when necessary (maybe 20% of the time) and facilitate the reading of relationships in normal mode by taking advantage of the link already established by the Id key?
Thus, 80% of the time, it is not necessary to double the creation of the element with the creation of a link.

But how should user "remove" items from report without removing them from DB or closing them.
For instance :
- if user wants to display all tickets with Urgency=Blocking, how can he do that ?
- if user wants to display last 5 decisions, how can he do that ?
- if user wants to display 3 most expensive expenses, how can he do that ?

The user delete this in the generated document.
The purpose is not to make a complex extract tool but to use database links between elements instead of explicit links.
The two systems can be usable, with two different placeholders.

In most of the case, you become able to list links without decribing then in database AND in element.
