Field Manager

Parent Previous Next

The Field Manager ribbon group, like any Microsoft Office-styled application, is comprised of buttons.




Field Manager Files


The selections made when using Field Manager are saved in XML files.


The location of all files is: C:\ProgramData\ServiceSoftware\Master Data Aficionado Workbench


Knowing this can be useful because the settings can be made on one PC and the files distributed to other project team members to ensure that deliverables are created consistently.

Field Manager


Use Field Manager to manage the list of Properties for Segments and Fields that appear in the user interface, field-level mapping documents, and other reports that are configurable.


Application default settings can be restored by clicking the toolbar button to Restore Program Default Selections and then clicking the Save icon on the same toolbar.

A Field Manager Object is a list of configurable properties.  For example, in the user interface for a Map Project, the Segments that appear in the Main Work Area are configured by a Field Manager Object named SegmentsMain.  The Field Manager Object named SegmentsMain describes the list of Properties that will appear for each Segment in the Grid.


For each of the Properties of Field Manager Object named SegmentsMain, there are Object Properties that control the behavior of the Property.


The following Object Properties may be maintained for each Property of an Object:
