The following document will explain how to add dates as attributes in Paragon.
For more information about what attributes are or how they can be used, please click here.
Note that there isn’t a limitation on the number of attributes you can create in Paragon.
Step 1: Open attribute setup
From any screen, hit the settings button. This will bring you to the settings page.
Under the attributes card, click on attribute setup to access the attributes setup module.
Step 2: Create a new attribute
To add an attribute, hit the create new attribute button.
Step 3: Name your attribute
First, enter the attribute name. Then, hit the next button.
When you hit the next button, certain conditions will be validated:
- The name must begin with a non-space character
- The attribute name must be unique
Note that once you’ve completed setting up your attribute, the name of the attribute cannot be changed.
Step 4: Choose the attribute type
Now, choose the type of attribute you want. You can select from:
- Freeflow text or number entry
- List to choose from
- Money and currency
- Date picker
In this case we want to select “date picker” and hit the next button
Once you’ve hit next, the system will show a preview of the attribute, as well an optional description field, as well as a list of categories to choose from. Note that the date format will be determined by your web browser’s date format. Once you’ve made the final changes, hit the save changes button. Your attribute will now be ready to use.
Once you’ve created all your attributes, the next step will be to associate them to a module. This needs to be done for the attributes you just created to appear on their appropriate modules. For more information on how to do that, please click here.
