Settings

General settings

  • Name - Short name for the view. The view name can be used in certain view patterns in which case the format of the name should as simple as possible, only alpha or alphanumeric characters, to avoid pattern parsing problems.
  • Description - Short description of the view purpose and characteristics to allow managers to see at a glance what each view is intended for. This description is displayed only in the view management list.
  • Visibility - This setting allows denying students' access to the view. The setting does not affect managers' (manage templates capability) access.
    • Disabled: Students cannot access the view and do not see the view name in the views menu.
    • Enabled: Students can access the view but do not see the view name in the views menu.
    • Visible: Students can access the view and can see the view name in the views menu.
  • Filter - A predefined filter from the Filters list (if any) that will be enforced in the view.
  • Per page - The max number of entries to display in the view at any given time. If the number of viewable entries is higher than the selected per-page a paging bar will be displayed (provided the ##pagingbar## is added to the view template).


Submission

The submission settings allow you to determine the behaviour of the view when editing entries. Depending on your activity application, you can display different submission buttons with default or custom labels, display all or only the edited entries and show a response to the submission. Note that in order to apply the submission settings you must enable at least one submit button.

Display when editing

  • Display mode
    • Show only edited entries – (Default) When editing one or more entries the view will display only the edited entries.
    • Show edited entries separate – When editing one or more entries the view will display the edited entries above the rest of the entries.
    • Show edited entries inline – When editing one or more entries the view will display the edited entries blended with other entries according to their display order.

Submission buttons

  • Save - Saves the edited entry and returns to the view.
  • Save and Continue - Saves the edited entry and continues editing.
  • Save as New - Saves the edited entry as a new entry and returns to the view.
  • Save and Start New - Saves the edited entry and opens a new entry form.
  • Save as New and Continue - Saves the edited entry as a new entry and opens a new entry form.
  • Cancel - Cancels submission and returns to the view.

Redirection

  • Target view - By default the user remains in the same view after entry submission. If an alternate view of the activity is selected, the user will be redirected to that view after submission.
  • Response timeout - The delay (in seconds) after submission and before the user is redirected to the target view.
  • Response to submission - A message to display to the user after successful submission and before the user is redirected to the target view.
