Choosing Items

In a number of places you are able to select some of your items to work on, for example:

  • to copy from one event to another
  • to apply a pricing policy
  • to create bid sheets or other printed forms

In all of these cases the same control is used to select the items:

The default for an item chooser is to show all the items. The current set of selected items is shown in the main part of the control and you can page through the items using the buttons at the bottom if there are more than fit on one page.

You can adjust the set of items by clicking on the options icon:

Ordering Items

In some cases it is helpful to be able to influence the order the items are listed in. This may not matter when you copy items from one event to another, but when printing forms it can be helpful to sort them by the location field rather than the item#

To adjust the sort order click on the sorting icon (3 lines) and choose the field to sort by.
