Enabling and disabling base properties

To enable or disable base properties, do the following:

  1. Ensure that the Properties tab of the Settings page is selected.
  2. Select Base, positioned under the title of the tab, if the relevant page is not already displayed.

Example of the Properties tab of the Settings page, with Base selected

  1. Locate the appropriate property and click the switch, positioned to its left, to enable or disable it.
    If a property is enabled the switch is green. When a property is disabled, the switch is light gray.

Viewing and managing child properties

Certain properties, such as Contact details, may have additional child properties. To view them, click the downwards pointing arrow, positioned to the right of the relevant panel.

Example of a property with children

If a child property is disabled, its switch turns light gray. You can disable all of the relevant child properties by using the switch belonging to the parent.

If disabling a child property results in an invalid JSON string, a warning displays and the switch is reset.

Downloading a JSON file

To download a JSON file that represents the schema for all base properties, do the following:

  1. Click Download JSON.
    An Open File dialog displays.
  2. Select whether to open the JSON file with an appropriate program, or to save it locally.
  3. Click OK to proceed.
