Users with the role Admin can find the list of contexts tasks for a context type by either selecting the name of the context type or Context Types on the Dashboard meny and then clicking on the relevant type. The Context screen for this type will then open:
Searching for contexts
You can enter text in the Search contexts field to search for, and even use terms from several columns at a time, with an AND logic. In the picture above, a search for elise Nielsen will find only the first task in the list. The search here is not case-sensitive.
Viewing a context
In the Context Builder you can follow the progress of work performed on a context from start to finish.
- Select the context type you wish to see a context for in the Dashboard’s side menu
or select Context in that menu and click on the context type you want.
You’ll then see a list like this:
- Find the context you want in the list. Use the search bar on top to search for it if you can’t see it right away.
- Press this context’s View Context icon (the eye) to open the Context Builder and view the context:
- The main context and the subcontexts all have a closed or open folder icon to their left.
Press the right arrows ⯈ to open, or down arrows ▼ to close, the individual subcontexts and the main context.
– or –
Press [Expand all] to see the context, its subcontexts and their tasks.
- The context pictured above has just one task at the moment, “40 New Annual service Commissioning”.
When you hover the pointer over a task you will see the task template it belongs to.
- If your context or subcontext has an information icon by its folder, you can point at it to see this message: “This context will be hidden in the app if there are no accessible sub-elements for the active user”. In the picture above this means that if users have no work assigned on the ship Amalia, they will not see this ship in their Next app.
- Click in the “Information filters” box above the main context pane to see more fields in the list below. Scroll down and select the fields you want.
Click on the ‘x’ in a filter button to hide its field from view.
With all filters selected, a context may look like this:
As we can see there is a lot of information on display, which is why it is often better to show just a few field types and open contexts at a time. We can find the following information in the picture above:
- The context Viking Warrior has 2 main subcontexts, Deck 1 (in line 2) and Deck 2 (in line 5).
- Deck 1 has the state COMPLETED and Progress 100%, and we see that this is due to its one task in one cabin having the state Done.
- For Deck 2 there are three cabins to be worked on, and the tasks in all these cabins have the state New (Progress 1%).
This means that the work on Deck 2 has not started yet, so the state of Deck 2 is also NEW.
- So work on Deck 1 is finished, work on Deck 2 has not started.
The top line for the main context reflects this – its state is ONGOING and Progress is 50%.
The fields and information shown in the Context Builder, such as progress percentages, depend on the settings defined for your server in the Context Type editor and the Task Template editor. The states of contexts and tasks can be set here in the Context Builder.
