Adding Data Entries
To add new Data Entries / Name-Value Pairs take the following steps:
- In case the
Step Definition Form is not yet open,
find your the Step Definition and open the Step Definition Dialog.
- Fill out the General Attributes (find more information below)
- Fill the Value Attribute section. This section is dependent on the selected Value Type in the General Attribute
- Click the 'Plus Sign' button to add the configured data entry to the list.
- In the list change the Seq field if you want to change the sequence order in which
they will appear on the Traveler for the user.
Some examples on adding specific types of Data Entries (will show step by step screenshots on how to add the specific type of Data Entry):
General Data Entry Attributes
General Data Entry Attributes are the Attributes That have to be defined for each
The Name entered in this field will show up as the Label for the Data Entry on the
Traveler. It will also be used, in combination with Step Operation Number, to identify
the Data Entry if it is used in calculations,
Input to Output
The Data Entries can be made Part Specific, so the Step can be configured that the
traveler only requires a Data Entry, if a specific part is moving through a step.
This way you can reuse Step Definitions, while customizing them for different parts.
If the Entry for the Attribute is left blank, the Data Entry will show up for each
part type that will move through this Step Definition.
Individual vs Batch
Batch Data Entries will have a single input field for all parts on the Traveler.
The individual option will show individual data entries for each part.
Required to Complete Step
If this check box is checked, the Traveler will not be able to move to the next
step if no value is entered in the traveler input field.
Required to Sign Off
For steps with a condition it will require the user to first enter these values
before the processing of the Step can be stopped.
