Search and Results

Selecting one of the main and sub-items in the Administration and Module Dashboard automatically opens the Search Dashboard directly below it.

For example, opening the Quick Search item, and selecting the Map Layers sub-item opens the Search Dashboard in the lower left portion of the window.

You can choose available layers fro search from the dropdown and then click Search when you are ready to begin your search.

After you enter your search criteria and then click Search, (or just click Search without adding criteria) the Search Grid and available tools displays in a seperate window within Transparent Earth

  • Users can scroll up or down left or right to display more information.
  • Users can also drag the border of the dashboard to the right, thus expanding the amount of information visible in the grid.

The Results grid offers tools allowing users to edit items, map records, view more or less information, and export information.

Edit[edit]

Depending upon the type of information you're querying, users may or may not have the option to "edit" a specific feature. 
If the Edit button displays, then select the applicable record in the grid, then click the Edit button (for example, click the Edit Maintenance Report button as shown in the image).

 

MapIt[edit]

Depending upon the type of information you're querying, users may or may not have the option to see the specific location of that item on the Map. 
If the MapIt button displays, then select the applicable record, then click the MapIt button, and the map will zoom to the specific location on the map, with a point, line or polygon indicating the location of that feature. 
Another option is to double-click the record. Double-clicking the record has the same result as clicking the MapIt button.

 

Column Filter[edit]

Use the Column Filter button to select which columns display in the Results Grid.

Click the down-arrow to open the list of columns, then select or clear the check boxes next to the column title.

Click the Export Visible Fields button to export the current list of issues displayed, with the current visible set of columns.

Drill Down Filter[edit]

Use the Drill Down Filter field to narrow the list of results in the Results Grid. 
Start typing a value in the Drill Down Filter field (for example, a UserID, a Form Name, a date), and the results grid will narrow the results to display only those Forms with that value included.
