Specification Manager
« on: September 02, 2016, 04:33:00 pm »
Does anyone know if there's a way to have tagged values as column titles in the Specification Manager?

Just had a colleague look at this and he has version 12.1 and can do it (I am using 12.0). Next question can you save the specification manager view as a diagram?

No but check out the following
a) model views in the dashboard diagram although the items in the list will be read only.
b) view all items on diagram and view diagram as list - no tag values though.

Hi Amy_N

If you are using EA version 13, then tagged values can be added as follows:

1) Open the specification manager
2) Set the Default Type by choosing the Set Default Type section of the Specification Ribbon
3) Select an element that contains the tagged values within the Project Bowser
4) Right-click the Specification Manager title bar and select Add Tagged Value Column
5) In the resultant dialog ensure the check box Tagged Values from Selected Element is selected
6) Choose you Tagged Value from the drop down list

I would imagine a similar process would work in earlier versions of EA.

Cheers

Hi,

EA 12.1 supports Tagged Values with Specification Manager.

You should ensure:
- No document view!! (simply select another view from Appearance, top right in Specification Manager)
- Define the type of item you want to show (top right in Specification Manager)

I admit, I tried a lot and I got stuck in the Document View.

Kind Regards,

Helmut
