ResearchTies: Managing data

  1. 1. Managing Data
  2. 2. Managing Data • Data that has been entered previously will occasionally need to be edited or deleted. • Adding new repositories, sources, surnames, people, marriages and places is done more efficiently in the “lists.”
  3. 3. To manage your list data, click on the “Lists” icon on the blue bar, and select the desired item.
  4. 4. Each list provides “Edit” and “Delete” functions for each entry.
  5. 5. Clicking on “Edit” will open the template where the entry was first recorded. Make the desired changes, then click “Save.”
  6. 6. Clicking “Delete” will remove the entry entirely.
  7. 7. Warning: • If you delete a person, place, source, or other item that is linked to data in your log, you will break those links.
  8. 8. Managing Data • Watch your dropdown boxes, and always select from the boxes. Only add items that are not yet in the dropdown, and watch the lists to prevent duplicate entries.
  9. 9. Each of the lists also has an “Add” button. Clicking on “Add” will open an empty template to create a new entry.
  10. 10. Managing Data • Objectives, searches and results are handled differently than the list items, with only slight variations. • Editing or deleting objectives, searches and results begins with the “Search Your Logs” function.

  13. 13. To edit the objective, click on “Edit” in the right column.
  14. 14. The objective template will open. Make the necessary changes, then click “Save Objective” to save the changes.

  16. 16. To edit a search, begin by clicking on the “Search” icon in the blue toolbar, or click on “Search Your Logs.”
