Transforming an entity’s type

Since entities all share a similar base, this means you can change an entity’s type after you’ve created it. Say you create an event, fill it out, and later realise you want an item instead. No worries, you can change the entity’s type in its actions, accessed by clicking on the “cog” next to the entity’s name.

Transforming an entity

Data gained, data lost

This transform will keep all the shared data the two entity types. For example, if you transform an event to an item, the item has no date field, so that is lost. Transforming the item back to an event will not recover the date value.

However, the name, type, entry, tags, permissions, attributes, posts, reminders, relations etc are all kept. You also don’t need to update any mentions targeting the original event, Kanka automatically keeps track and updates all of them!
