Working on a form, which applies a configuration to an object selected from a table. Multiple objects can be selected to have one configuration applied to all selected.
This approach works fine when each object shares exactly the same form field values as the other selected objects.
However, we have now been told that in some instances multiple shared objects will alongside commonly shared values have unique values as well.
So I am trying to explore design patterns or find examples as guidance as to how this can be achieved. One option is to restrict the user to only selecting one object if it requires any unique values submitted from the form. This could make the applying of configurations very tedious if they need to configure more than a few objects.
Or if they select for example 5 objects, all the common form field values are shown once, and the unique form field values in this instance are shown 5 times, once for each object.
I am not asking a specific question but looking for ideas, options, information from anyone who has worked on something similar.
