Hi, this is my first post to this forum.

Can anyone tell me how to create new types of record in the Alfresco RM fileplan?

Currently it has "Default" plus 4 others…PDF Record, Digital Photograph, etc. How do I add to this list?

What we want to do is have different meta data fields for different records/folders. Currently it seems that when you add custom meta data it shows for EVERYTHING.

For example…

A folder called "Invoices" would have an "Invoice Number" field, but you wouldn't want this showing for records in the "Board Minutes" folder.

I've looked at editing the xml files, surely there is an easier way?
