Hi all. I have a client that has three metafield apps. They are asking if they can be consolidated, so that only one metafield app is installed.
However, the issue of namespacing seems tricky.
Since this might seem confusing, my question is simply:
Is there a way to consolidate the apps in such a way that ONE app is able to view and update metafields across namespaces, without a large frontend refactor?
Writing this all out seems silly, because I believe the answer is NO. However, I figured I would ask anyway, since the client is tired of having to choose from a menu of 3 possible metafield apps when making small changes to their data.
Technically what you are looking for is possible -- it's just a matter of finding the right app/solution. I'd strongly suggest taking a look at the Accentuate Custom Fields app. It is one of the most robust metafields apps out there, and it does have built-in features that allow you to use and manage metafields from other apps. Here's an article from their help center with some more details: https://help.accentuate.io/article/14-field-definitions-for-existing-metafields
Hopefully this helps!
