Inheritance of item properties and restrictions

Properties and restrictions of items are inherited when a new item is created.

For example, an item named Department is defined as a character text item that has a content size minimum of 2 and maximum of 3. Department has a list of "include" restrictions that consists of valid departments: ACC (Accounting), SLS (Sales), and MKT (Marketing).

The type MainOffice is created as a subtype of Department. MainOffice inherits the properties and restrictions of Department.

You can delete any restrictions that are not applicable to MainOffice.
