I’m trying to make an attribute schema for tree inventories. For my species pull-down list I have a huge number of species I need to add for my region. Is there an easier way other than entering them manually from within the app? I have 100+ species that need to be added.
If you create a template within the app, you are able to use text editors like Notepad++ to manipulate the data, however, you’ll need to first generate a schema file so you can see how it works. It should also be noted that editing in the text editor isn’t easy and if something isn’t formatted correctly, the schema won’t work properly.
This is a small snippet of the schema file:
<SimpleField name=”A1 Date” type=”string”/>
<SimpleField name=”A2 Visit Number” type=”string”/>
<SimpleField name=”A3 Treatment Type” type=”string”/>
<SimpleField name=”A4 DIY Landcare Kit and Re-fill Subscription” type=”bool”/>
It is possible, but there could be issues. If you’d like I can file a feature request so a schema editor could possibly be added for a desktop/web version so it would make editing the schema easier.
You are able to open the schema inside of Excel, however, editing inside of there could be very difficult, the best option would to be have a schema editor that you could manipulate on a desktop since it is easier to edit and change the schema on there.
I have created the feature request for you so you will be notified if and when we implement that functionality in the future.
