Use custom properties

Custom properties allow you to assign custom values to nodes. Once you have assigned these values, they can be displayed on the map and in reports. For example, you may want to indicate if nodes are leased or owned. To accomplish this you can add a Yes/No custom property called Leased, and select which nodes to which you want to apply this property.

Custom Property formats are:

  • Text
  • Number (Integers)
  • Decimal
  • Yes/No (true/false)
  • Date/Time
