Adding properties as a column to the Document pane in Content Station 9
The Document pane in Content Station is used in various places to show the files that are available in a particular location. Such locations include:
- The Inbox on the Home page, showing all files that have been routed to you.
- The Dossier Content in a Dossier, showing all files that are in the Dossier.
- The Search Application, showing all files that have been found.
- The Trash Can Application, showing all files that have been deleted by users.
When viewing the Document pane in List View mode, the properties of the file are shown across multiple columns. Columns can be added or removed through the Column List menu.
Figure: The Column List menu (A) is used for adding or removing columns from the Document pane (B).
By default, a limited number of properties are shown in the menu but additional properties can be added.
Step 1. In Enterprise Server, access the Dialogs Setup Maintenance page.
Choose Dialogs Setup in the Maintenance menu on the left side of the screen or on the Home page.
Step 2. From the Action list at the top of the page, choose Query Result Columns for Content Station.
Note: There is no need to make a choice from the Brand and Object Type lists; when making a choice from these lists, they are automatically set to 'All'.
Step 3. At the bottom of the page, click Add Action Property.
Options appear for adding the property.
Step 4. Set the options as needed.
- Order. (Optional) Enter a number that specifies the order in which the property should appear in the Properties pane.
Note: The higher the number, the lower the property will appear.
Note: Custom properties are listed first and are preceded by an asterisk character (*).
Step 5. Do one of the following:
- To add the property without adding another one, click Update.
- To add the property and display a new set of property settings for adding another property, click Add Action Property.
The created action property is displayed in the section above the Add Action Property button.
In the Custom section of the page, a Brand/Object Type/Action group is displayed to indicate that at least one action property has been added to that combination. Clicking the link displays all properties at the bottom of the page that have been configured for that combination.
