Multi-assistant (from BUSINESS Professional)
The multi-assistant function is used to make simultaneous changes to the properties of several objects. For instance, test intervals can be changed for all objects in the list view.
The multi-assistant is available in the view “Input, Change, List” for portable and stationary objects under the activated list view (green border); refer to “Function “Input, change, list””. The multi-assistant is also available in the test data preview.
The multi-assistant consists of four index cards: FIELDS, TEST SEQUENCES, CUSTOMER and LOCATION.
 
Index card FIELDS
This is used to enter or change field contents for selected object properties in a list of devices.
First, use the various selection functions to select the required devices, e.g. via tree selection or “Filter editor function”.
The selected devices are shown in the list view.
You must mark the relevant rows if you only want to add new field content to selected devices. The selection will otherwise apply to all devices in the list.
Clicking on the symbol opens the index card menu “Multi-assistant”.
The index card “FIELDS” is the default setting.
Now select whether the operation should be carried out for all objects or only the marked objects.
Select an entry from the pull-down menu in the field PROPERTY.
Add the chosen alphanumerical value to the field VALUE.
Select “Execute” to confirm.
 
Take note: The multi-assistant is a powerful tool. It enables users to deliberately change data fields for many objects. All of the edited data is irretrievably altered once the changes have been saved.
