How to set up variants or attributes
This is a feature that enables you to capture unique attributes about an item that differentiates it from other similar items. For example, sizes, color, etc.
Once set up, when filling out the data capture forms, you will be presented with new fields for you to enter the relevant attributes.
Setting up variants or attributes
From the Data Capture page, go to Options > Add Attributes
On the new page, fill out the form by entering a descriptive title. This title will be used to identify the set of attributes and their associated options.
Thereafter, enter the attributes, and its associated options, if applicable.
If the Options column blank is left blank, the attribute field will be presented as a text field. Conversely, if it’s filled in, with comma-separated-values, each attribute will be presented as a dropdown field as shown below.
Once you’ve defined your attributes, go back to the Data Capture page then choose “Attributes” as the Answer Type.
From the main tables go to Options > Manage Attributes.
On the new page, there are options to either add, edit, view or rename attributes.
You can create new categories with each category having its own set of variants.
Click on the New Category button.
On the new page, fill out the form by entering a descriptive title, and setting up the variants and applicable options.
To rename the attributes for data that has already been captured, go to Options > Rename Attributes.
On the new page, find the attribute’s name, then click on the “pencil” icon.
Enter the new attribute name after that.
Editing attribute settings
To edit an attribute’s settings, go to Actions > Edit.
On the new page, enter your desired settings.
Viewing data in categories
To view the variants in a category, go to Actions > View Items.
