PINs are listed in the Saved pin menu (on the Viewer), like other markups, but in their own category.
- Click the [PIN] menu on the Viewer screen [highlighted with green rectangle in the screenshot above].
The Saved pin menu will appear.
Individual PINs after their creation are displayed under the Saved pin menu. Each row of PIN displays the PIN icon name (which is essentially the name of the equipment), the date & time when the PIN is created and the count of the PINs saved together (must be of the same category – i.e. must have same PIN icon selected).
Click the button of a saved PIN to view the PIN annotation icon on the document.
- Click the icon to make the PIN annotation icon disappear from the document.
- Click the [View all] button to view all the PIN icons of all saved PINs on the document.
- Click the [Refresh] button to update the saved PIN menu.
The refresh functionality is required because during the same time when user has opened the View PIN menu, some other user may have created a PIN on the same document in the same account through the device. In order to reflect that newly created PIN in the saved PIN menu, user needs to click the [Refresh] menu.
- Click the PIN annotation icon on the document to view the PIN (View pin screen will appear).
User can enter search keywords within the ‘Search’ textbox of the Saved pin menu. The search keyword must match the following attributes of the PIN for the application to fetch the PIN as search result:
- Name of the PIN (PIN icon title)
- Description of the PIN
- Note of the PIN
- Name of the file attached to the PIN
After entering the PIN, application will search for the keyword match in the various attributes (mentioned above) of the PIN. Application will fetch PINs (whose attribute matches with the entered keyword) as search results and display these individual PINs in separate rows. If the whole or portion of the keyword matches with any of the attributes of one or more PIN, then application will fetch those PIN(s) in the search result.
For example, user enters the search keyword ‘Bio’. Application matches the entered keyword with various attributes of the PIN. Let’s say, the entered keyword matches with the name of a PIN. Application will fetch that PIN whose name matches with the entered keyword.
Screenshot below displays the PIN as search result:
Another example is that when user enters the keyword ‘Air Conditioner’, application will fetch only those PINs as search results whose icon names are either the full keyword (both words ‘Air’ and ‘Conditioner’) or part of the full keyword (both words ‘Air’ and ‘Conditioner’).
