15 Howto Customization Properties And Views Presentation Transcript

  • 1. How-To: Customization – Properties & Views www.swingsoftware.com This tutorial describes creation of custom document properties and custom document views. Document properties contain additional metadata related to documents. Paired with custom views, they make a powerful and flexible combination which enables users to customize library navigation to suit their needs. In this example, we will create a custom property titled ‘Department’ and make it a Choice menu. Users will then be able to create documents and mark the department(s) to which the document is relevant. Then, we will also create a document view, which will display all documents sorted by the department to which they belong to.
