Application Codes

All of the simple codes (used in drop downs and other locations) are kept in a single code grid for easy reference and update.

Codes Grid

To edit a Code record, click on the Codes icon (barcode) within the Common tab of the ribbon menu.

TIP:  To make the Codes easier to navigate, first right-click for the context menu and enable the Group-By Box feature.  Click and drag the "Group" column header into the grey bar above it.  Now all of the groups are visible at a glance and their sub-categories can be easily accessed by clicking on the + symbol on the left hand side of each row.

  • Code Short refers to the acronym chosen for the code.
  • Group refers to the drop down menu category that it belongs to.
  • The Sequence number refers to the order this code will appear in the drop down menu.
  • The checkbox "Is Active" allows you to show or hide this code.
  • The Locations codes have a Sub Location option to allow you to add a custom sub location.  To do this, just create a new record and choose the option for "Location Types" under the Group drop-down menu.  Now save the record and it will become an option for Sub Location.
