Editing a custom dataset

  1. Under the Edit Dataset Info tab, customize the desired options. This includes:
    1. The dataset's name
    2. The optional description of the dataset
    3. Optional custom JS/CSS code to customize the dataset's appearance.
      • Click the Hide Pre-Defined EntriesHide Entered By, and/or Hide Internal Notes links to automatically insert code for hiding those fields on the Record Data page
      • Make sure to place all CSS code between <style></style> tags and all JavaScript code between <script></script> tags
    4. Optional custom footer code (this will override any custom footer code added to the LibInsight system settings).
    5. Enabling whether or not users can add more than 1 record at a time.
      • When this option is enabled, users can enter multiple copies of the same record at once.
      • This can be helpful, for example, if you received 5 of the exact same directional question during your shift, as you won't have to re-enter the same data 5 separate times.​
    6. Selecting the timestamp recording method (this can only be customized if the dataset is empty).
      • Display Start & End Date/Time Stamps: this will allow users to pick a starting and ending time. This is good for data such as instruction sessions, where it can be helpful to know how long a session runs. When using this type of timestamp, you will be able to use the Duration analysis for your data.
      • Display One Date/Time Stamp: this will allow users to select a single date and time.
      • Display Date Stamp Only: this will allow users to select a single date -- not a time.
      • Display Month/Year Stamp: this will allow users to select the month and year, which can be helpful when recording aggregate data.
      • Automatically Calculate the Timestamp: this will record the date and time that a record was submitted, which can be useful for things like feedback surveys so you know when someone responded.
