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

  1. Go to the Assemblies Database page and open the Properties tab there

  2. Press the New button -> select the Text type

  3. Set a name for your property (the field is mandatory)

    The name must be unique

  4. Specify the Group (the field is mandatory)
    To create a group, perform the following steps:

    1. Press "Group" on the input field

    2. Name the group

    3. Press the Create button

      The group will be saved. Next time, you can simply select it from the list

  5. 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

  6. Hit the Create button to create a new property

  7. Once the Property has been created, it'll appear in the Properties tab inside the group you've specified when creating a property
