- You must have created and activated your account.
- You must have a current subscription.
- You need access to at least one layer with at least one area or location created in it.
- You need editing permissions.
Required time: Up to 10 minutes.
In this lesson, we’re going to learn how to edit an area or location’s details. Here, we’ll refer to areas and locations collectively as records.
For all sections, start by making sure one of your layers are turned on and navigate to the record you want to edit. We’ve chosen the area we created in Part 2, but the process is identical for locations. Your screen should look like this.
Editing the record's data
Next, click on the record to open the information window, and at the bottom, click the ‘Actions’ button to open the area’s action menu.
Now find the button titled ‘View/Edit information’ and click that. Your screen should now look like this.
Change the name for your record (you can always undo this later by repeating the same steps). If you have any custom fields set up, you can also change their values if desired.
When you’re done, simply click the ‘Save changes’ button in the bottom-right.
Any changes you’ve made will be saved and you’ll be returned to the information window. That’s it! Editing data is as simple as that!
Editing the record’s classification
- You will need to have created classifications and attached them to the record’s layer. See here for instructions on how to do this.
Let’s start by clicking on the area to open the information window. Navigate to the ‘Actions’ button and click to open the record’s action menu.
Find the button titled ‘Change classification’ and click that. Your screen will now look like this with all available classifications listed on the right-hand side.
If the area is already assigned a classification, you’ll see that it is already selected. Select the new classification you want to assign, and then click the ‘Save changes’ button in the bottom-right. You’ll be returned to the information window and the map will be updated to reflect your changes.
