Location Driven Folder Card

Good Afternoon:


I'm trying to have multiple Folder Cards within a folder structure but I’ve come to realize that I cannot save folder cards to specific locations when created by a template in PDM, and I’d like to have a few locations that have unique folder cards available. These folders would contain other pieces of information that’s pushed to the files within. I know of the ability to drive folder card tabs by a variable, which could let me have one master card for the entire directory structure that contains 4-6 tabs for the unique locations and hides the information that is not relevant to the directory. It also allows for easy additions of items needed down the road. What I was hoping to do was create a variable that can change its value based on the directory location, to drive those different folders to appear to have unique folder cards. Is something like this possible? I’m expecting some sort of custom task that would be required to run through the directories, but I’m hoping it can be an automatic feature.


If I’m completely off the rails and there is a better way to do what I’m proposing, I’d like to hear your ideas on how to administrate a feature like this.

I should mention we're currently using PDM 2016, and will be upgrading to 2018 in the near future.
