Connecting dictionary entries to activities in QuickModel¶
Like in the Editor, you can connect dictionary entries to tasks in the QuickModel application. This can be done with the task or its attributes.
Dictionary entries allow applying naming conventions more easily, finding connections between diagrams and capturing information even faster using the auto completion.
Start typing a task name in the What? column and the auto completion will suggest a list of dictionary entries that are related to the text you entered:
The auto completion functionality suggests dictionary entries.
Choose the dictionary entry you want to link to the task by clicking it or selecting it with the arrow keys and pressing Enter. The task will be will be linked to the dictionary entry. You can now edit the name of the task, the dictionary entry will stay linked to it.
Linked information will get a small dictionary icon:
The task ‘Create Order template’ is connected to a dictionary entry.
You can also connect single attribute values to dictionary entries. Whenever you add textual information to an attribute the auto completion will suggest dictionary entries in the same way:
An attribute is referencing a dictionary entry.
Hint: Attributes referencing dictionary entries are fixed links to the entry, you cannot edit the attribute’s name.
