Properties are inputs for Items and Assemblies. This is the first step before creating an Item or an Assembly.
After you apply properties in Item or Assembly, they'll be transformed into a column in the Items report.
How to create the "Text" property
Go to the Assemblies Database page and open the Properties tab there
Press the New button -> select the Text type
Set a name for your property (the field is mandatory)
The name must be unique
Specify the Group (the field is mandatory)
To create a group, perform the following steps:
Insert Default value (the field is optional)
Default Value can be further changed when adding it to Item and to Assembly, and when applying it to Measurements or Folders
Hit the Create button to create a new property
Once the Property has been created, it'll appear in the Properties tab inside the group you've specified when creating a property
