Settings Tab

Provides a variety of functions including Attributes and Messages.


The main function of the Settings tab is to control the Attributes that are set for a survey template. Attributes allow you to add information to a survey template without having to create extra fields on the Kinetic Remedy forms. You can define your own attributes from the Attributes tab on the Configuration Manager

Example of Settings Tab:


Available Attributes are listed on the left side table on the Settings tab. Once the attribute is created, it is shown on the right hand table - Configured Attributes. To add a specific attribute value, click the attribute you want on the left hand table, enter the appropriate value (or select from the list) and click Add. To modify or delete a configured attribute value, select the attribute value from the right side table, and then click the Modify or Delete buttons.

Description of preset Attributes:

Expiration Days - Default 30, number of days before the survey is expired. Default is set, but attribute is not active by default.

Web Messages and Priority

Web Messages allows you to setup specific error messages for your survey template. These would override the generic error messages that are set on the Configuration Manager. The available web messages include: Generic Error, No Access, Survey Instance Closed, Survey Not Found, and Survey Template Closed.

The Priority field is an integer only field that sets the sorting of survey templates within a Category. A lower number means a higher priority.

Locked Option

The locked field allows the current survey template author to lock the survey template against other authors. Check the Locked check box and save the service, and the user ID will be placed in the Locked By field. The identified user can uncheck the Locked check box and free the survey template for other authors.
