To manage a Value Attribute Type, navigate to the Admin page by clicking on the left sidebar menu, look under the “Improvement/Project Attributes” heading, and click the Value Attribute Type you want to manage. The admin page is only accessible by administrators; only Quality Administrators can perform the functions detailed on this support page.
An Attribute is a quality or feature that can be assigned to Improvements or Projects that lets you classify and categorize your improvement work.
There are three kinds of Attribute Types:
- Value Attributes
These are Attribute Types for which your organization has built a list of options.
For example, many of our customers use a Value Attribute Type called "Priority" that is broken down into individual Attributes such as "High" and "Low."
- Person Attributes
This kind of Attribute Type allows you to add lists of users to any item including it without making them official members of the team. This is a great way to signify that someone will be affected by it even if they won't be working on it.
By default a Person Attribute will allow people to pick between users of the following statuses: Active, Frontline, Offline, and Incident (if your organization is using the Incident Add-On). However, an organization can request that we restrict a Person Attribute Type so that only users of some combination of those statuses can be added.
- Location Attributes
This kind of Attribute Type allows you to add lists of Locations to an item including it without making them official Originating or Responsible Locations. This is a great way to signify that a Location will be affected by it even if that Location is not directly involved.
A Location Attribute will always allow people to pick between every existing Location - they cannot select a deleted Location.
When dealing with lists of Improvements or Projects, you can filter them by any of those Attributes.
