The Organization Item dialog is used to show properties of one organization item and its connections to other model elements. The Organization Item dialog can be accessed from the Flow Chart view and the Navigator view by right-clicking the desired note and selecting Organization Item Properties...  from the pop-up menu. Also, the Organization Item dialog can be opened from the Process Step dialog or Resource dialog.


The organization item dialog has the following pages: General, Resources, Process Steps, and Custom Attributes (when the organization item contains custom attributes).





The General page shows name, symbol, type, part of organization item and the description of the organization item. All these properties can be modified. The symbol is a unique identifier for the organization item. When a new organization item is created, QPR ProcessGuide will assign it a unique symbol by getting the model object id and adding "MO" to its beginning. It is also possible to edit the symbol. Allowed characters in the symbol field are alphanumeric characters in upper case and lower case.




On the Resources page all the resources that belong to this organization item are shown. Resources cannot be modified on this page.



Process Steps

On the Process steps page all the process steps which are done in this organization item are shown. Process steps cannot be modified on this page.






The Instances page lists all the process levels (in alphabetical order) in which an instance of the current organization item exists. To open the selected process level and view the instance, click View. To delete the instance from the selected level, click Delete.



Custom Attributes

In the Custom Attributes tab, you can manage the values of custom attributes and view the descriptions of selected attributes. This tab is visible only if custom attributes have been defined for organization items. To define a value for the listed attribute, you can just type in the value directly to the field. The values for Boolean and enumerated attributes are selected from a drop-down list. You can also add new values for the attribute by selecting Add if the custom attribute is allowed to have several values (the attribute has cardinality N).


You can use the Remove button to remove individual values from attributes that have cardinality N. The button is enabled only when an attribute with cardinality N is selected in the list.

To clear the value of the selected attribute, select the Clear button. If the value is an attribute set, the action clears all sub-values of the attribute set. If the attribute is an attribute with cardinality N, it removes all values from that attribute.

You can click the View button to open the element properties dialog of the selected element. The button is enabled only for relation type custom attributes that have the relation defined.

For memo and relation attributes, you can use the Modify button to edit the values. Then a new window is opened where you can edit the values, or in the case of a relation attribute, Select Model Elements for Relation is opened for selecting the model element.
