The External Tag table viewer shows the external tags currently recorded in your MainBoss database.To see the table viewer, use Administration | External Tags. The table viewer window contains the following:

External Tag: Click this heading to sort the list by tag name. Click again to reverse the order (from ascending to descending or vice versa).

Apply Filter: Lets you set up a filter to select which records should be shown in the table. For more information, see Table Filters.

Record contents: When you select a tag in the list of tags, the table viewer changes to show you the contents of the record associated with that tag. For example, if you select a tag associated with a work order, the table viewer will change to show you the sections of that work order.

In addition, the bottom of the window will change to show you the buttons typically associated with the given type of record. For example, if you select a tag associated with a work order, the window will display all the buttons normally associated with a work order (e.g. Add Work Order Comment).

Edit: This drop-down button offers several possible actions:

Edit: Opens an editor window to let you edit the selected record.

View: Opens an editor window where you can examine the selected record.

Search: Lets you search through the list of records for a particular record. For more information, see Searching for a Particular Record. The Search button has an accompanying drop-down list containing the following:

Find Next: Uses the same search condition(s) as your most recent search and finds the next record in the table that matches the condition(s). If the search reaches the end of the table without finding a matching record, it goes to the start of the table and continues the search.

Find Previous: Same as Find Next except that it goes backward in the table. If the search reaches the start of the table without finding a matching record, it goes to the end of the table and continues the search.

Refresh: Updates the list to reflect any recent changes.

Close: Closes the window.
