Creating and Editing Codes

Prerequisites

You have already created code groups for the required catalog type.

Procedure

  1. On the code group overview screen, select the required code group and choose Codes.


This function allows you to simultaneously edit all codes in a code group. The system then locks this code group for other users.

  1. On the overview screen for editing codes, proceed as follows, depending on whether you want to create or change a code:


Creating a Code
Changing a Code
a)
Choose New entries
The code group table is ready for input.
In the table, edit:

  • Short text for the code
  • Long text for the code
  • Follow-up action (in the standard system, catalogs 2 and 3 only)
  • Defect class (when catalog 1 is valuated with R (Rejected) and for catalog 9)

b)
In the table, enter the following data:

  • Key for the code
  • Short text for the code
  • Long text for the code (optional)
  • A valuation of the code (for catalog 1) for results recording
  • Follow-up action (in the standard system, catalogs 2 and 3 only)

Defect class (when catalog 1 is valuated with R (Rejected) and for catalog 9)


Since the system sorts the codes in a code group alphanumerically, use leading zeros when entering codes. Otherwise the system sorts your codes as follows: 1, 10, 11, 12, 3, 4.
If you transport code groups for all clients, any long texts that exist are not included.

  1. Choose Save.
