Flow Chart View Settings Properties Dialog

Previous topic Next topic  

In the Flow Chart View Settings Properties dialog you can configure new or existing view settings. This dialog is accessible from the View Settings dialog.

 

General

In the General tab you can define general properties for selected view settings. The properties you can define are Name, Description and the default expansion state for contents of expanded subprocesses.

 

The options for the default expansion state for subprocess contents is either "Expanded" or "Collapsed". If you select the “Expanded” option, all expanded subprocesses are shown in expanded state. You can still collapse individual subprocesses on the flow chart, overriding this setting. Selecting the same view setting again will reset the subprocesses to the expanded state.

 

You can save the change you have made to the default expansion state by selecting the "Save State to View Settings" option from the pop-up menu in the flow chart. If you want to clear this setting, select the Clear Customizations button in the Flow Chart View Settings Properties dialog. This button has an effect only on the default expansion state for subprocess contents, not to any other changes you may have made to view settings.

Elements

In the Elements tab you can define the types of elements that are visible on the flow chart when the selected view settings are active. In addition, you can define which fields within those element symbols are visible as well as limit the visibility of connectors based on their transfer types.

To define the elements that are shown in the view settings, use the check boxes next to the element type names in the "Element shown" section. Fields available for element type(s) (you can use Ctrl and Shift keys to select multiple types) selected in the "Elements shown" section are listed in the "Show fields" section, and there you can use the check boxes next to the field names to define the visibility of the fields. A checked box means that the field is shown for all selected types in the current view settings (i.e. the currently highlighted element types, not those that are checked) while a cleared box means that the field is not shown. In the case the box is filled, the default settings for the element type symbol are used. The default settings can be defined in the Modeling Options dialog or the element's Graphical Properties dialog.

QPR Metrics Link

In the Metrics Link tab you can define QPR Metrics Link settings for the view. The Default scorecard name setting allows you to define a default scorecard which is used in the case of links where only measure symbol is defined. The scorecard can still be changed in QPR Portal. In addition, the Period drop-down box allows you to define the period which is used for the measure values. "Latest for all" uses the latest period for which measures have a value, and "Current" uses the current period regardless of whether it contains a value. If you want to use the settings you have defined in this dialog for all view settings, not just the current view settings, click the Apply to All View Settings button.

Measure Values

In the Measure Values tab you can define the Measure and Case for which possible measure values (these are not the same as measure values coming from QPR Metrics links) are displayed. When the measurement unit is a number value, the number of decimals can be specified using the scrolling arrows next to the Number format field.
