Kavi® Status Tracker Help
Table of Contents
Kavi Status Tracker stores project and activity data. Data may be added to the Kavi Status Tracker database by administrators using Admin Area tools and group participants using Member Area tools. Kavi Status Tracker is highly customizable and includes only a slim set of predefined data fields. Your site is likely to include many custom fields that can't be documented in the help.
Data fields, both default and custom, appear in multiple forms in Kavi Status Tracker, and the form depends on the context. Labeled data fields in the UI are displayed as proper nouns. Data fields displayed in Report Builder interfaces are always preceded by the word 'Project' or 'Activity', to indicate the type of data, since a project data field and activity data field may both have the same name, such as, er, 'Name'. To differentiate between these fields, report tools would display these fields as 'Project Name' and 'Activity Name' respectively. Slightly different versions of these variables are used for column headings in downloaded reports and email template variables. In the data reports project field names are prepended by 'activity_' to distinguish them from similarly named activity fields. Email template variables are prepended by '$a_'.
Table A.1. Activity Data Fields
|Date Occurred||11/9/2007||The actual date that an activity occurred. This may be blank if an activity is scheduled but has not yet occurred. In MM/DD/YYYY format.|
|Date Scheduled||11/8/2007||The date on which an activity is scheduled to occur. This may be blank if the activity was simply recorded when it occurred rather than scheduled in advance. In MM/DD/YYYY format.|
|Activity Type||Proposal||An Activity Type is a template on which actual activities are based. The Activity Type determines which activity data fields are available in activities based upon it.|
|Last Modified||14 Nov 2007 16:55:59 US/Pacific||A date stamp set by the server whenever project data changes. The value shows the time in the server's local time zone.|
|Note||Added URI of supporting document. K.M.||This is a free-text field that can be used to collect notes about the activity. The notes can be edited. If project status tracking is distributed among project participants, participants might add their initials to distinguish one person's notes from anothers.|
|Summary||New Widget Interoperability standard based on older Widget Compatibility standard.||Short summary of the project. This is a good place to enter information that can be used to characterize and distinguish this project from others when it is displayed to the public, etc.|
|Submitter||Kim Miller||The full name of the person who added an activity to a project's activity schedule. When a Status Tracker Admin adds an activity, the administrator can select their own name or the name of the person who asked that the activity be added. If distributed administration is enabled in Kavi Status Tracker and the activity was added by a Project Recorder, the full name of the Project Recorder who added the activity is automatically entered in the Submitter activity data field.|
