Assumptions. We all make them. Last week I discovered an incorrect assumption that we all are happier without. Most of us want to show the equipment the line is going to or from on our links, right? It’s a pretty standard request.
For a long time, I’ve said this wasn’t possible. Last week I found out that it is actually really easy!
All you have to do is add an attribute to your link with one of these names:
PROC_FROM, PROC_TO, ACT_FROM, ACT_TO
Here’s an example of a link that I modified:
Here’s the link placed in a drawing:
What is interesting about this, is that the link is reading the data in the link from the lines table. Previously, I assumed the links would only read from the Link Database table. It turns out that the links read and update the information from the Component-Lines table as well!
So, with this easy change, you’ll be able utilize the intelligence of the process lines in your link flags.
