Horizon interface update (October 2020)

The Yellow Exclamation Point replaced with combo-boxes

We've removed the exclamation point symbol  exclamation and corresponding pop-up window from the Work order and Report publishing screens. This button has served Horizon well for many years, but  it is time to replace it. Example may be found below (Fig. 1)

It is replaced with a new tool called combo-boxes. Click inside the boxes to see the list. (Fig 2).

NEW_EXAMPLE_2More flexibility!
This new feature allows you to type your own text into boxes. They are not just dropdown lists anymore. You can enter whatever you want on the fly.

It also has auto-complete so it will recognize any list item as you start to type. For example, if you have a list of 40 towns that you work in, you can just type in the first few letters and it does the rest. Faster than scrolling through long lists!

Note: You can also modify one of the options after it has been selected. (Fig. 3)

Note: If you want to see all options available in the list again, delete the text in the box.

The drop down will show all available options when you place your cursor into the input text box.

Below is an additional example on the Contract screen in the work order. To use it, click in the text box field to pull up the available options, then select the one you would like to use. (Fig. 5)

Note: If you unintentionally pick the wrong one from the contract list, click outside of the textbox then click inside of it to bring up the list again.

To add new entries to these lists, please go to Profile > 2. Administration > Text Options > Settings.

Note: From there you can also add additional options for Confirmation e-mail types, Cover Letters, Contracts etc.
