So I think I've understood your needs: you want to set attributes (ie
OEM S/N 1) upon creation of objects, either individually or bulk....
I really do not know how to do that. But what I can suggest as a
workaround is setting those attributes afterwards by using the
As per the information of the plugin, the syntax is the following:
Value 1, OBJECTATTRIBUTE
Value 2, Objectname: Specifies the name of the object
Value 3, attribute id: Specifies the numeric ID of the attribute (can
be looked up in Attribute table), also some general attributes are
supported, in this case use: NAME / LABEL / ASSETTAG / HASPROBLEMS
(yes|no) / COMMENT
Value 4, attribute value; Specificies the value to be set for the attribute
Moreover, with the previous you can set many attributes at once to
Could this be of help?

just to clarify, the idea here is that when my colleagues and myself add new
objects [Objects > Add More] wether or not in bulk, we need to add the OEM
S/N 1 and the only way to do this is to go individually object by object
after those are created, replacing fields like VisibileLabel or Asset Tag
that I'd mentioned and which we do not use, for fields that we actually do
would save us a tremendous amount of time.
We don't need new attributes, we just want to make use of those fields for
attributes (existent in RT) that we actually use.
Hope this clarifies what I'm looking to do.

I've been looking for ways to customise the fields existing 'Objects > Add
More' for creation of objects, namely to swap fields like [Visible label]
and [Asset tag] for something like [OEM S/N 1] and perhaps [Contact
person], would anyone happen to know if this is possible and if so how can
it be done? Or point me in the right direction?
