Images on Job Plan Tasks

Technote (FAQ)


Is it possible to add images to job plan tasks?


Within the 'Users' application, click on the 'User' tab. Then click on the 'Control Properties' button on the task bar.

Click on the 'Record Image' and drag the option into the location where you want the image to appear.

Click on the 'Record Image' within the application and click on the 'Control Properties' on the task bar.
Adjust the height and width of the image and add a label.

Click on 'Select Action' drop-down list and select 'Add/Modify Signature Option'.

Click on 'New Row' and enter Option = 'ITEMIMAGE'. Also specify a Description.

Within 'Add/Modify Signature Option', click on New Row. Add a Signature option of 'SHOWDELETE'
with a Description of 'Show Delete Button'.

Click on 'Select Action' drop down list and select 'Add/Modify Select Action Menu'

Click on 'New Row' Specify the following:

Element Type = Option
Position = 19
Subposition = 0
Visable? = Checked
Tabs = ALL

Click on 'Save' within 'Application Designer'.

Grant access to the security groups to the specific signature option by going to the 'Security Groups' Application and accessing the MAXADMIN group. Within the MAXADMIN security group, click on the 'Applications' tab and filter for the USERS application. Within the bottom pane, enable
'Add/Modify Image' and the 'Show Delete Button' option then click on Save.

The Image will not display on the job plan task.


This is not a bug. It is working as designed.

DETAILED EXPLANATION: An image can only be added to the main record at the application level (job plan) and not to sub-records (like job plan tasks). To add this capability, we would need an enhancement request.
