Deploy a Naming Convention
Viewpoint For Projects™ can apply file naming conventions at each of Enterprise, Site, and Project levels that adhere to BS1192 protocol. You must choose which naming convention you want to deploy and tailor it to your chosen location.
In order to deploy a naming convention at your chosen level, you must first configure it at the Enterprise level. See Configure a Naming Convention.
- Right-click the Enterprise, Site, or Folder you want to apply a naming convention to.
(and then to if you are at the Enterprise level).The Naming Convention - Deploy screen appears.
Click Apply next to the Naming Convention you want to apply and edit.
The Apply button toggles to Applied and your current location and all its child locations inherit the values of the Naming Convention that were configured at the Enterprise level (even if not deployed there).
The Edit button is enabled.
Click Edit to tailor the Naming Conventions values to your particular
location in the tree.
The screen expands to reveal columns of Naming Convention components selection options. If the Inherit check box is selected, the check boxes in the same column are disabled.
For each component column, clear the Inherit check box.
The check boxes for the component options in the column are enabled.
- Select the options you want for each component.
Your settings are applied and the screen contracts to hide the columns of options.
