With af.SubCategory it is possible to select a set of data who depends from another metadata information. This dependency can be defined in the configuration of this Woodwing Server PlugIn. If you have for example a category tree with a lot of childs, with af.SubCategory you can reduce the selection to the associated childs. But af.SubCategory cannot only be used for the classic category. It's possible to use it for any data who depends from another data. For example terms in different languages -> select language and you receive the terms in the selected language... and so on. The selected Subcategory can be stored into a field who is defined in the configuration. It's even possible to store it in a Enterprise-custom-field.
These dependencies can be defined for different scopes. They can be global, then they are valid for all brands and types or they can be defined for each brand and/or type.
With af.InDesignVars you can concatenate these two Extensions so that the selected value can be routet to InDesign.
