You can provide users with the ability to filter Sessions displayed in the Agenda, by adding Traits to Jomablue. Traits appear as "Filters" in the Agenda. Here is an example of how the filter menu looks in the Community Agenda.
Creating Trait Groups/Types
To create a Trait Group, log in to Jomablue and navigate to Community > Traits, then click on the New Trait Type button at the top right-hand corner of the page.
Enter the name of your Trait Group/Type, and then click Save to save it.
To create a Trait, you must first create the Trait Group it is intended to be placed in. Once this has been completed, navigate to Community > Traits and then click the New Trait button at the top right-hand corner of the page.
Enter the name of your Trait, and then select the Trait Group that it is intended to be placed in. Finally, click Save to save your work.
Trait Group and Trait Examples
Once added they will be available for selection on the Session Detail screen. A session can have multiple Traits. Here are some examples:
Trait Group: Level
Traits: Level 100, Level 200, Level 300
Trait Group: Type
Traits: Keynote, Hands on, Interactive, Party
Trait Group: Industry
Traits: Engineering, Vehicle, Scientific, Publishing, Pharmaceutical
Please note: A Session can belong to more than one Trait
Ordering of Traits
The order of the Filter menu is as follows.
- Trait Groups will always appear above Locations
- Trait Groups are ordered alphabetically
- Traits inside Groups are ordered alphabetically
Adding Traits to Sessions via the Session view
Once added they will be available for selection on the Session Detail screen. A Session can have multiple Traits.
Adding Traits to Sessions via the Traits view
To add Traits to Sessions via the Traits view, navigate to App Specific > Traits, and then click on the Sessions tab. You will see a list of Trait Groups - expand the Trait Group that the target Trait is in, then the Trait itself, using the chevron to the left of the Trait Group heading (see below on the left in red).
To add Sessions to a Trait, simply drag the Trait(s) from the box on the right (see above in red) and drop them into the list of Sessions already in that Trait (if no Sessions are in the Trait yet, then drop them into the grey box).
Hide Traits and Locations in the Filter Menu
Traits will only be displayed if they are assigned to a Session. Therefore if a Trait is created but not assigned to a Session, it will not display in the menu.
Trait Groups will only display if a Trait in the group is associated to a Session.
Locations will only display if they are associated to a Session.
