Bring editing of tables and lookup lists to the web

With the roll-out of the Power webclient we don't wan't to install the configurator on client desktops, but (most of the time) document managers are not allowed to work on the server.
Management of tables and lookup-list should be made possible via the web interface (preferably within the Power Webclient).

    We intend to centralize lookup lists in then Meridian Cloud configuration. The ability to use these central lookup lists in Meridian (Cloud and Server=on premises) in the 2018R2 or 2019 release.

    Totally agree, it would be extremely useful to provide a user interface via a web client (power or enterprise) for administrators to update configuration Tables. This is really a drawback in the use of tables.

    Hi Rudi,

    is this now included into 2018R2 or into 2019?

    In 2018R2 it is possible to synchronise lookup list from Meridian Portal. This is now limited to the predefined Portal properties which support lookup list.

    Synchronize lookup lists from the portal is only a partial solution (and not the solution i was looking for).
    Editing tables is often done by document managers who have no access to the servers. 
    So it would be very nice to enable editing lookuplists (as well as tables) thru the (power) web interface.
    I don't consider this idea as "shipped"

    I don not see editing tables in a web browser for Meridian server shipped.

    Synchronising from M360 portal was not the objective of "Bring editing of tables and lookup lists to the web".

    Is this functionality going to be made available for on premises without relying on Meridian Cloud?

    any news abotu thist one. Should not be marked as shipped, the shipped solution is not what was asked in this post?

    Indeed the problem still exist. People who need to change/alter/extend tables most of the time are not allowed access to the server. We can't provide them the configurator when DCOM is not enabled in a typical centralized enviroment. Plz, give us an other (and real) solution.
