    Create global collection data and select from it

    Hello all

    I'm fairly new to Umbraco but not to .net. I have built quite a few sites now but there is one thing I'd like to do the correct way that I have been able to do in other CMS's.

    Basically, can I create a document type that will be used by a content editor to enter data and to then be able to select from that data to be used on the front end.

    For example:

    • I'd like to create a collection of staff members.
    • The content editor can go to a root node called Data, with Staff as it's child node (with more children nodes to follow) and can enter a new staff member to be saved in the collection.
    • This data is global and not stored against any given page.
    • The website has a page for each department and aside from 'normal' content such as text and images, I'd like the editor to then select which staff members to display on that page.

    What would be the recommended way of approaching this?

    Many thanks,

    Michael

    You could set up a multinode treepicker with the Staff node as a startnode to pick the staff members.

    Hi Frans

    Thank you for that. I've not used the multinode treepicker yet so will give that a whirl and let you know how I get on.

    Many thanks, Michael
