Properties Window for Maintenance Items
When the Properties window is open, it displays the properties of the selected object or assigned item, including a Maintenance record for an element. These items include Changes, Issues, Defects, Tasks, Features and Documents.
You might select the item in the appropriate tab of the Maintenance window, the maintenance compartment of an element on a diagram, or the 'Element' tab of the Browser window.
The Properties window identifies the type of item just under the toolbar, and shows the current values for the:
- Item name
- User who raised the item
- Date the item was raised
- User who implemented or resolved the item
- Date that action was completed
- Priority of the item
- Version of the item
You can change the value for each of these fields (except for the 'Name' and 'Version' fields), clicking on the drop-down arrow and selecting a new value.
For the 'Name' field, you can either overtype the item name or click on the icon and apply any autonaming convention you have configured for maintenance items. If you click on the icon for the 'Version/ID' field, that value is copied to the clipboard to be pasted into a discussion or document.
The toolbar options operate on the parent element for the maintenance item. Any changes you make are automatically saved and displayed elsewhere when you click off the field.
