In my system I have projects which each belong to one group. Groups can have sub groups and those can have more projects etc.
Projects consist of attributes. Attributes can be project specific or group attributes which may or may not be used by projects in that group. The group attributes can be used in sub groups also.
I am trying to come up with a view for the group attribute management. The view should offer the following
- Show the project hierarchy (groups & projects)
- Show which group attributes are available for each project
- Give possibility to attach/detach group attributes to/from project
Most problematic thing in composing this view is to give some visual clues on which group attributes are available and where as the group attributes are not available for sibling groups but are available for the sub groups.
So the question is: how to compose such view so that it hints to user which group attributes are available for attaching/detaching?

This is drafted with excel but the real solution will be used in web UI.
