Although OpenGround Cloud comes with a substantial database with a wide variety of tables and fields as standard, it may be necessary to expand the model to fit your needs. This can be completed using an "User Defined Field" (UDF).
Ensure that no project is open and select Configuration Packs from the System menu, from within here, select the configuration pack that you wish to add this field to and then select Manage Model from the Configuration Tools menu. From the 'Manage Model' screen select the group of data for which the field is required:
Hint: if you have received a screen shot of the required field the name of the table can be found in the title header, "LocationDetails" in the example below:
On the highlighted row click the 'Edit' button. From the 'Edit Group' screen click the 'Add Header' button:
The 'Add Heading' interface will open:
Fill this out as required to define the required new field:
Once complete click 'Save'. You will be returned to the 'Edit Group' screen. Ensure the new field is present and highlighted in the interface then scroll across to find the 'Edit Mapping' column, assuming new field needs to correlate to a data transfer format:
Click the 'Edit Mapping' button, specify the items in the drop down lists and define the correct column name as it is required to appear in the outgoing format:
The above example would be used, therefore, to look for a field called "HOLE_TPGW" contained within an AGS3.1 file which is imported into OpenGround Cloud.
Click 'Save' and you'll be returned to the 'Edit Group' interface. Click 'Save' from here and then 'Close'. In order to allow these structural changes to be applied OpenGround Cloud will now need to reload the project (close the project and reopen if it doesn't happen automatically).
