Description

This Standard Choice configures the links that appear in the following two places:

  • In the block sections at the bottom of the welcome pages (Welcome Global and Welcome Registered)




    Note:

    Whether a block section displays relies on the blockvisible value of the corresponding Standard Choice Value in ACA_CONFIGS_TABS. If a block section hides, all the links in the block section hide no matter how you configure ACA_CONFIGS_LINKS.


  • Below the module tab bar.



Each Standard Choice Value defines a link and refers to a feature available in certain module or category. You must add a Standard Choice Value in the pre-defined way to enable the corresponding link (for more information, see Table 1). If you deactivate or remove a Standard Choice Value, the corresponding link hides.


Note:

The enable and disable statuses of the Standard Choice Values are in synchronization with the General > Feature Settings configuration for the corresponding features in ACA Admin.

The Value Desc field defines the page that each link (Standard Choice Value) directs to. Add the value description in the following format:

label=[label key], order=[order number], role=[roles], forcelogin=[forcelogin], url=[url], module=[module name]

Of the values:

  • label=[Type the system required label for the feature/link, as provided in Table 2]

  • order=[Enter the numeric order of display]. 0 is first.

  • role=[0, 1, or 0|1] Specify whether the tab displays on registered user pages (the Welcome Registered page), anonymous user pages (the Welcome Global page) or both. Type 0 for Registered User pages only, 1 for Anonymous Users pages only, or 0|1 for both registered and anonymous user pages.

  • forcelogin=[Enter yes or no.] The forcelogin value determines whether users need to log in before accessing the associated link. If the value is yes, then users who have not already logged in are prompted to do so. If the value is no, then anonymous users can access the link.

  • url=[Enter the URL for the feature/link, as provided in Table 2].

    The Search Applications link directs to the module home page. You can add the following parameters in the URL to further customize the module page that displays when users click the link:

    • $ShowMyPermitList$. If the parameter value is Y or undefined, the My Permit List section displays on the module home page. If the parameter value is N, the section hides.

    • $SearchType$. This parameter defines the default search options of the Record Search section on the module home page.

      • SearchType=NULL: The Record Search section applies the first search option as the default search option.

      • SearchType=None: The Record Search section hides the whole search section.

      • SearchType=General: The Record Search section applies the general search as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByAddress: The Record Search section applies the Search by Address as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByLicense: The Record Search section applies the Search by License as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByPermit: The Record Search section applies the Search by Permit as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByTradeName: The Record Search section applies the Search by Trade Name as the default search option.

      • SearchType=ByContact: The Record Search section applies the Search by Contact as the default search option.

  • module=[Type The name of the module, such as Building or Planning.]
