When a user of Studio or Studio for InDesign and InCopy searches for files in the Studio database and views the results in List View mode, the user can choose to see various columns in this list. Each column represents a property of a file such as name, Workflow Status, and modified date.
Which columns the user can choose from is configured in Studio Server.
Note: Client applications such as Studio or Studio for InDesign and InCopy can add their own required properties or hide properties that are not supported by that client. The actual properties that are shown to the end user might therefore be different than those that are configured here.
Step 1. Access the Query Setup page in Studio Server by clicking Query Setup in the Maintenance menu or on the Home page.
Figure: The Query Setup page of Studio Server.
Step 2. From the Action list, choose for which client you want to set up the query.
|Properties shown in the Custom Search dialog box of Studio.|
|Query Result Columns||Columns shown in all clients when none of the below options are configured.|
|Query Result Columns for Studio||Columns shown in Studio.|
|Query Result Columns for InCopy||Columns shown in Studio for InCopy.|
|Query Result Columns for InDesign||Columns shown in Studio for InDesign.|
|Query Result Columns for Planning||Columns shown in 3rd-party planning applications.|
Step 3. Click Add.
When adding a first setup for the chosen query, a message appears stating that in the setup that you are about to create, mandatory properties such as Name, ID or Type will be automatically added. You will also be asked if regularly properties such as 'RouteTo' and 'Comment' also need to be added.
Step 4. Click Yes or No.
Note: Properties that are added by clicking Yes or that are left out by clicking No can at any time be removed or added in the next steps.
A list of properties appears: all mandatory properties and optionally all regularly used properties.
The option at the top of the list can be used for adding additional properties.
Note: Options for managing the already added properties will become available as soon as a change is made on the page: either by adding a new property or by navigating to a different setup and then returning to this setup.
Step 5. Add additional properties by doing the following:
- In the Order box, enter a number that specifies the order in which the property should appear in the list.
- Choose a property from the list.
Note: Custom properties are listed first and are preceded by an asterisk character (*).
- Click Update.
