Save modified data.

Create New

Creates a new data record. 2 variations are possible. The admin defines per table which variation is used.

Variation 1:

After selecting File -> Create New , a window appears with the question :’ Do you want to create a new record?’ When confirmed with OK, a Data record ID will be assigned and an empty data record is created. This data record can now be edited. It is not recommended to create empty data records.

Variation 2:

After selecting File -> Create New, a window appears with the question:’ Do you want to create a new record?’ When confirmed with OK, an input mask appears to enter the data. The data records will only be created after you choose SAVE.


The record is copied, but only the data fields defined by the administrator are taken into account.


The print function of your browser will be activated. The screen contents will be printed or saved to a file.


Create a new version of a data record. Go to File -> Versioning. A confirmation window appears. Click OK if you want to version this record, or cancel it. You can also add a note(e.g. a reason for the new version) if you have versioned in the record view.

After the confirmation of the question the current version of the record “disappears”. The new version appears at the end of the table. In the record view you can select in the top right corner which version of the record shall be shown. If you want to show the versioned records, select “show versioned” in the view menu.

The table now shows all records, versioned or not. All versions of one item are shown after each other. There is now a new column in the table which shows the version number of the record. If you have a versioned record this record is red.

Note that versions can only be compared if you are in the record view.

At Menu->Extras->show versions status there is the possibility to show the version at a specific date.


Selected data records will be archived. Archived data records are not displayed in the Record List. To edit (change, version or delete) an archived data record you first have to recover it.

You now see a list of the archived records and can edit them in the detail view with a double click.

An archived entry is now marked in the detail view by a small icon at the top right.


Selected data records will be deleted. They are physically deleted and cannot be restored.
