Properties are a way that you can add more data to different areas of your Creative Force instance. You can click here to know how to add properties. As of now, Creative Force supports 11 different property entities which are:
Style guide properties
Style guide production type properties
Style guide position properties
Vendor user properties
Along with the property entities, you have the option to section the property into different types. This will come in handy when you set conditional rules for the positions or production types in the Style guide. We have 4 different types of properties:
List of options
When the property type is free text, you can add in whatever data you want.
For example, the free text type is very useful for Colour code, Brand ID code or Supplier code.
List of options
From here, you will create a list of options that your team member can later on choose to add to the product.
Sample sizes, Gender or Season would be good to use as a list of options.
When editing a product, you can only choose from the list above.
When editing property, you can only change the property type from ‘free text’ to ‘list of options’ and vice versa. As date and date time are different formats and they are input differently as well.
After creating a property as date format, the way you input data for that property will be a bit different from a list of free text properties. Creative Force will let you choose a date from the calendar instead of typing the text manually or selecting from a drop-down. For example, you can set the due date for when the product needs to be shot by.
This provides you a chance to put in a time alongside a date value. For example, you can set a product to be launched at a specific date and time.
You can only change the property from ‘date’ to ‘date time’ and vice versa.
When updating the date properties via file upload, please remember to have your property in the correct format DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY. Otherwise, the system will convert the value to a timestamp.
