Field Mappings

With field mappings, we have made it easy for you to show data that is relevant to you.

Edit field mappings settings
  1. Open the WorkPoint administration dashboard and click here to expand the settings menu for the business module.
  2. Click on Field Mappings to access the settings.
Active field mappings

One of the settings we can enable is active field mapping. This allows us to control what value equals that an element is in an active state. This active state setting is then used by our client software (WorkPoint Express), to allow users to limit the elements shown by default in the selected business module.

  1. Here you select the column that contains a value that indicates that this is an active element.
  2. Here you define one or more values that equals an active element.
 Active field mappings example
  1. The company has a column called status, with the value Active.
  2. In the field mappings settings I have defined that if the value of the column status is "Active" or "Registered", the element is considered to be be active.

In WorkPoint Express, the result of our configuration looks like this. The red dot on the funnel icon indicates that the filter is active., i.e. the user have ticked a box.

My entities field mapping
  1. Setting up my entities field mapping, enables you to take advantage of the "My items" filtering option in WorkPoint Express.
  2. In the "My entities field mapping" settings page, you will be presented with columns from the current business module of the type "Person or Group".
  3. Add a check mark next to the relevant column or columns.
General field mappings
