User Created Elements and Live Reports

I've created an element named "CERT Team" and added some sample fields (Team Leader, Team Members, Channel, Mission, etc.).

When using Live Reports, I set the Subject Line as "CERT Team: Blue Team, 2000 I Street, Sacramento CA"

Depiction loads this as a "Point of Interest" element. Are user created elements not able to be matched up during the live report process?

Also, how can you set up an element to "always" display certain fields as hover text? I'm finding I have to go to each new element to get the hover text to display as we want it to.

  • Robert, it's easy for parts of a multiple part question to get lost so I suggest posting each separate. I'll answer the second part cause I can off the top of my head; I'll have to play with the first part.

    Custom elements can have default hover text of whatever you want. In the element definition editor you will see several attributes for each property (visible, editable... hover text). Just check the box under the hover text attribute for that property to display by default. If you've already created the elements, you can edit the DML file with notepad, but that's a longer story.

    Default elements are as is.

  • Robert, I tested Live reports with custom elements, and it did work. However, what was different is I used the Send feature and looking at that email - it used the "Definition Type" rather than the "Definition Description" in the subject line. In my example I made an "ARCVolunteer" element, so in other words the type in the subject line was "Depiction.Plugin.ARCVolunteer". So I would suggest checking a couple things: first try using the Send feature and see how it formats the email, then make sure the receiving depiction has the element definition loaded.
