Displays the properties of the selected document or documents. If only one document is selected in the tree view, the properties displayed on this tab are the properties of that one document. If multiple documents are selected, only the properties with the same value for all documents display. Any properties with varying values across the documents display with blank values in these fields.

You can change some of the values assigned to one or more documents by changing the value displayed in the table. The value you type here overrides any existing values for all selected documents.

Selected documents

Displays a list of the documents selected for publishing. You must populate this list by selecting documents in the Management Console or Detail View before you use the Publish command. For each document, this list displays the name, the type of document, the workflow from which the document was last published, the revision and version numbers, the revision scheme, and the date when the document was last published.

Engineering Tool

Opens a dialog box to select documents to add to the Selected documents list. This functionality is not available in the current release.

File System

Opens a standard Microsoft dialog box that allows you to select documents to add to the Selected documents list. When you select a file with this Select File dialog box, the Document Properties dialog box displays, allowing you to specify information about the file, such as whether it is a new file; the category, type, and subtype of the document; and the name, description, and title of the document.

Find

Opens the Find Documents to Publish dialog box, which allows you to search for documents to add to the Selected documents list. For more information, see Find Documents to Publish Dialog Box.

Last Published

Indicates the date on which the document or documents were last published.

Name

Displays the name of the document.

Source

Indicates the authoring tool in which the document was created.

Type

Displays the type of document or documents selected.

Comment

Allows you to type information about the selected documents that are publishable.

Issue Only

Allows you to issue request documents without, necessarily, republishing them. Use this option when no changes were made to a drawing and you only want to add it to a contract.

  • Even with this option set, you can still publish the documents. If any of the documents have never been published, they must be published, regardless of this setting.

  • You will receive an error message if you select multiple documents and activate this option when one or more of the selected documents cannot be changed. For example, the error message displays if the selected set of documents includes both a new document (for which this field can be set only to No) and current or locked documents (for which this field can be set only to Yes). The error message prompts you to select a smaller set of documents.

Owning Group

Select an owning group from the drop down list to which the document belongs.

  • By default, the owning group selected for the previous version, if any, is shown.

  • All the owning groups configured in SmartPlant Foundation are listed.

Revision

Displays the current revision number of the selected document or documents.

You will receive an error message if you attempt to change the value in this field when you have selected one or more documents that have conflicting revision schemes or different possible revisions. The error message prompts you to select a smaller set of documents.

Revision Scheme

Displays the revision scheme applied to the selected document or documents.

Only revision schemes that are applicable to the configuration (plant) or classification (document type) are available in the shortcut menu. The revision schemes related to a configuration or classification are not available for any other configurations or classifications. If none of the revision schemes are related to the configuration or classification, then all revision schemes are available unless they are related to any other configuration or classification. For more information on revision scheme configuration, see Configure different revision scheme strategies.

You will receive an error message indicating that this field cannot be edited if one or more of the documents that you have selected are not new or will have a revision scheme supplied by the authoring tool. The error message prompts you to select a smaller set of documents.

Version

Indicates the current version of the document or documents.

Workflow

Indicates the workflow to which the selected document or documents are assigned.

Publish Type

Allows you to publish all data in a 3D model or only the changes to the model since the last successful publish. If the 3D model has not been published before, the software automatically selects All and performs a complete publish to ensure all filtered data is published and loaded into SmartPlant Foundation.

Check and publish released claims for previously deleted items

Specifies that you want to resolve issues where deleted items were restored from an earlier version and the claim on them was released. This check takes additional time and should only be used when deleted items have been restored. This option is not supported in this release.

This check box should also be activated when publishing after a backup is restored or when releasing the claim on an object forces another tool to release the claim on a related object that was previously deleted. In this specific case, the tool fetches the object from As-Built again and releases the claim.

Operation

Specifies the operation to perform on the selected documents.

  • Publish - Selected documents are published immediately.

  • Background publish - Selected documents are published immediately as a separate process, allowing you to perform other tasks at the same time.

  • Scheduled publish - Selected documents are published in the batch mode by the authoring tool. This option is available only for tools that support batch mode and are processed by the authoring tool, not the SmartPlant Client. The documents are not published immediately. Instead, the selected documents are scheduled for publish at a later time and may be scheduled as a recurring operation.

If the software cannot make a SmartPlant Foundation server connection when you use Scheduled Publish, you are prompted to provide a valid SmartPlant Foundation login and password.

Custom

Opens the Custom dialog box. This functionality is available only if defined by your project implementation team.

Check for deleted objects no longer on documents

Select Check for deleted objects no longer on documents option if you want to process the move instructions while publishing.
