This set of topics deals with various miscellaneous tasks that are performed by the Domain Administrator.
Define Panel Location Levels
You can define multiple levels for your panel locations. For example, you can define three levels with Building as the highest level (Level 1), Floor as the second level, and Room as the lowest level (Level 3). Then, in the Domain Explorer, users can create specific locations on any of the levels and assign panels to the locations. Panel location is defined per domain; therefore, all the panel location definitions that you make become available throughout the entire current domain. For more information, see Define Panel Location Levels.
Assign Icons to Telecom Device Types
Use this procedure to assign icons to telecom device types available in the current domain. This way the software can indicate the telecom device type of specific device panels displayed in the Domain Explorer (or Wiring Explorer, accessible from the Wiring module). For more information, see Assign Icons to Telecom Device Types.
User-defined fields are database fields for which the Domain Administrator defines default labels at the domain level in the User-Defined Tables and Fields Editor. User-defined fields enable users to define characteristics for Smart Instrumentation items according to their own needs.
For calibration user-defined fields, the user enters values in the Calibration module. If the Domain Administrator enables process data user-defined fields, the user can then enter values for these fields in process data sheets. For all other user-defined fields, the user enters values in the relevant EDE views, and can also edit the default labels. For more information, see User Defined Tables and Fields Editor.
A user-defined table is an additional supporting table that holds user-defined information for an instrument tag. The Domain Administrator uses this procedure to define user-defined tables for tag numbers at Domain level. You can define up to sixteen user-defined tables. User-defined tables enable Smart Instrumentation users to set additional attributes for tag numbers in the Instrument Index module. You can add the Name field of a user-defined table to a specification page. For more information, see User Defined Tables and Fields Editor.
Generate Domain Administration Reports
This topic deals with the various reports that a Domain Administrator can generate. For more information, see Generate Domain Administration Reports.
Select a Logo
You can select a .bmp format graphic file that will appear as a logo in most printed documents such as some reports and specifications.
You can build a number of domains in your database, each having a different logo. In this case, when you switch to a domain, the software retrieves the logo assigned to that domain from the database. If all your domains use the same logo, you can make the logo retrieval operation faster by selecting the PROJLOGO.bmp file located in the <Smart Instrumentation home folder>\Temp folder as the default source logo file for all domains in the database. This file is automatically generated by the software during the Setup process. For more information, see Select a Logo.
Define Field Personnel Profiles
This procedure enables you to maintain a list of employees who are in-charge of carrying out the actual instrument field-maintenance. For more information, see Define Field Personnel Profiles.
Modify Domain Notes
This topic explains how to modify your domain notes. Note that this option is available to both System and Domain Administrators. For more information, see Modify Domain Notes.
