I have a content tree folder with hundreds of child items. Is there a way to have a profile card assigned to all child items without manually assigning them the card?
As mentioned in the comments, there are two solutions:
Solution 1: Standard Values
Assuming the contents of your folder all share a Data Template (or inherit from one) you can assign the profile card to the Standard Values of the appropriate Data Template, and now all your folder content will automatically have it on creation (and retroactively for existing Items provided they don't have any profile cards assigned already).
Solution 2: Event Handler
If the contents of a given folder are of mixed Template types, you need to get clever. You can create an Item Created or Item Saved rule that does the following:
- Checks to see if the new Item's ancestry includes the folder that "designates" Items that should have a specific profile card.
- If true, executes a custom Rule Action to add the profile card to the new/saved Item.
When creating a custom Rule Action, you can add the Profile Card ID as a parameter, so that you can apply this rule action to other folders, and supply references to other Profile Cards.
