As you are now more familiar to working with BeeFinity, you probably created some generated descriptions. Some generated descriptions and group mappings can be quite time consuming to make.
We already provided you with our default group mappings and generated descriptions. However, you still may want to quickly add more. Especially for groups with similar features.
That's were our cloning functionality comes in.
You will find the 'Clone' buttons in the 'Description builder' and 'Mappings' tabs of the group.
What does the button do?
By clicking the Clone button, a popup will appear, asking you to choose a group. This will be the group FROM which you clone either the generated description or the group mapping.
Only groups from the same category will be shown. Check the example below to learn more.
So, we have few 'Power cable' groups, for which we want to choose the same generated description and group mapping.
We chose the first one and click the clone button for the generated description.
We choose to clone from the other power cable group.
In this case, not all features matched, and we are told which ones don't match. Feel free to close the popup after taking notice of these features.
Just press 'Save' and your generated description is cloned.
Cloning group mapping
The process of cloning is pretty much identical for cloning group mappings. Here are the core steps, one more time.
- Make sure the group you're cloning FROM is set to fit your needs;
- Navigate to the group which needs to clone the features from the FROM group;
- Move to the 'Mappings' tab;
- Press the 'Clone' button;
- Select your FROM group;
- Note: Some features may not be cloned, because they don't exist in your current group
- Once cloned, hit 'Save'.
