This tab starts the entry of table details for this page item.
Set default (1)

This relates to a drop-down list items and takes the format xxxx:yyyy where xxxx is an attribute name and yyyy is the unique name of a different item in the job definition. The value of the attribute gets put into the relevant field as a default.

For example, a list of Buildings might have an associated value of NumberOfRooms and this list is attached to the page item in a Job Definition.  Another page item (of type Text) in the Job Definition is for RoomsToClean.  Typing [list of Buildings attribute NumberOfRooms]:[unique name of RoomsToClean] would populate RoomsToClean with a default of NumberOfRooms and this could be amended by the administrator when the job was set up.

This is where parameters for Page item types 'Auto-generated value/number' and 'Display-only information (not saved)' are entered. 

 

Report processing variables can also be used here - for example %$seq:JobNumber:30000:1% will put in a sequential job number, a hyphen and the location's site code producing something like 31234.

Report processing variables can also be used here - for example %$seq:JobNumber:30000:1%-%% will put in a sequential job number, a hyphen and the location's site code producing something like 31234-C1234.

These will usually be related to the location, and the parameters are referred to as Location attributes. These need to be entered in the format %$locAtt:[location attribute name]%. 

Allow creation of new entries This tick box applies to list-based and contact items only.
*Unique name

The unique name must be entered for each item and is a mandatory field. The name is used internally and so is not generally of importance. A default value is generated by the system automatically. You may wish to override this value to have a “nicer” name if the field concerned is part of a calculation or if you are exporting the data to another system.
