CAA Product Help
(HELP ?) Circles provide narratives on Training, Explanations, and Hints. These can be related to the overall screen, or to specific items on the screen.
** Note: Refer to the (NAVIGATION HELP ?) Circle on the Information Bar of PrayerLink immediately after logging into it to see the screen sections and layouts used by all the CAA Products.
This (HELP ?) Circle narrative is for two selection buttons called the [REMOVE SELECTED] Button and the [RETAIN SELECTED] Button. These buttons are found in certain ROW/COLUMN Forms on Display Panel screens in the CAA Products. They assist you with focusing on specific active records on those applicable Display Panels .
For your convenience, these two buttons are found both at the top and at the bottom of the applicable Display Panel .
Using the Selection Checkboxes
After selecting the active records you want to work with, you can use the Checkboxes in the "SELECT" Column to identify certain of the records for further action. You can check those you want to remove from the active list or check only those you want to keep on the active list. Then you can use the appropriate buttons to make the ROW/COLUMN Form change.
[REMOVE SELECTED] Button
This button will remove the checked records from the ROW/COLUMN Form, leaving the remaining records as the active records (including those not seen if more are active than fit on the screen.)
[RETAIN SELECTED] Button
This button will keep the checked records as the active records in the ROW/COLUMN Form, and the unchecked records will disappear. "All" unchecked records will become inactive, even those beyond the limit that were visible on the screen.
** Note: Removing selected records in this manner DOES NOT delete them from the database. It merely removes them from the set of active records and from the display view. They become "inactive records" until another function resets all records to active records.
And always remember: only the first few active records (a limit that can be changed in the Configuration File) are displayed in the "ROW/COLUMN Forms". There could be more active records than can be displayed on the screen.
Resetting the Selection Checkboxes
There will be a "RESET" Hyperlink on the Navigation Panel . Clicking it will clear (turn OFF) the Checkboxes in the "SELECT" Column so that you can start fresh in selecting records to remove or retain in the ROW/COLUMN Form. Also, any records that had been "removed" will reappear again.
