Sections

Default sections of a table.

Overview

Sections are the module of document. Use section to insert different type of unstructured data. When you define sections at the table level, you force all future created records to include these sections.
Changes to the section will NOT affect any of the existing records. Unsigned records can be reformatted to match the default sections. A record can be altered by adding new sections and archiving existing sections after it is created. If you're just getting started with Labii, you don't need to configure all default sections at once. Add the first set of sections, and you can always update them as you test and use it. In the case of a need for different default sections, users can create a template with all the necessary sections and use it to create new records.

List of sections

Each table has its own default sections. Open a table and click the Sections tab to view the list of sections.

Search sections

You can search sections by typing a keyword into the search bar in the sections list view, and then clicking Search. The search results can always be cleared by clicking the Clear button.

Filter sections

With the Filter function, you can limit the number of sections displayed. You can do that by clicking Active sections and then selecting a filter from the dropdown. Here are a list of filters:
  • All sections. Filter to display all sections of the table.
  • Active sections. Filter to display the active sections.
  • Archived sections. Filter to display the archived sections.
