One of the most important tools for your scheduling is the object list.
The primary purpose of the object list is to show what is available depending on the type you have chosen on the selected list, and we'll be presenting the object list below along with its functions.
Note: Keep in mind that what is shown on the object list determines your placement on the selected list. These examples require that you have first chosen one of the selected list's various types.
Object list searching
In the search field above the object list, you can search for objects by name, ID, number, etc. Simply enter what you are looking for, and objects matching this will be displayed on the list.
Category searches in the object list
Certain types of objects have categories for which you can apply filters. Common examples of categories are room type, building and department. If you select a category, all objects matching that category will be displayed on the object list. Follow these steps to select a category:
Click the icon to the left of the search field.
The various categories you can choose from will now be listed in the column to the left in the displayed box.
Choose the preferred category in the middle column. The chosen category is shown in the column to the right.
The objects will now be displayed that match the category and the icon will be marked in yellow as an indication that the list is filtered.
Note that not all types of objects have categories. The categories available and the types of objects that contain them have been customised for your organisation.
Settings in the object list
You can make settings for how objects are displayed on the object list in many different ways. One of the most common settings is for changing which information is displayed for each object on the list. For example, for rooms you can choose to display the room number and/or room name; for courses you can choose to display the course code and/or course name and so forth.
Follow these steps to specify how a specific type of object is displayed on the object list:
Click the + sign in the right upper corner
Choose between the different available columns
Object list sorting
You can sort in descending or ascending order by clicking the double-headed arrow to the right in each column heading. If there is no double-headed arrow in a column, this means that the field in the column is not sortable.
