UTA Level 1 variables called from UTA Level 2

If your Web Page View is at Level 2, you can call Level 1 variables using:

@parent.fieldname@ or @parent.#fieldid#@ (Note: All field names should be entirely lower case.)

Example: @parent.status@ or @parent.startdate@ or @parent.#12345#@


UTA Level 2 variables called from UTA Level 3

When working at Level 3, you can call Level 2 variables using:

@parent.fieldname@ or @parent.#fieldid#@ (Note: All field names should be entirely lower case.)


UTA Level 1 variables called from UTA Level 3

If your Web Page View is at Level 3, you can call Level 1 variables using:

@parent.parent.fieldname@ or @parent.parent.#fieldid#@ (Note: All field names should be entirely lower case.)


Level 3 Associated Parent (Opportunity)

Where Payment Allocation is enabled you have two models to choose from before configuring: usually the Associated Parent is a Funding Stream of Overall Budget (event) and the associated object is the Disbursement (Level 3). In less granular cases the Associated Parent is the opportunity.

Level 3 Associated Parent


If Payment Allocation is enabled, you can pull fields from the Associated Parent using the following variable:

@linkparent.fieldname@

If your associated payment is linked to the event you can pull fields from the opporunity using the following variable:

@linkparent.parent.fieldname@ So @linkparent.parent.branch@ will return: SmartSimple Inc.

On the company/branch:

@linkparent.parent.branch.Transit@ will return: 1950

Level 1 Contacts/Accounts

Individual

To display information for a single contact/account in the Level 1 contacts/accounts section:

@contact.rolename.fieldname@   or   @company.rolename.fieldname@

where:

  • rolename = the name of the role that has been assigned to the contact/account on the Level One item
  • fieldname = the name of the field that is located on the contact's record.

Example:

@contact.adjuster.firstname@ or @company.funding agency.address@

Note: if there is more than one contact/account assigned with the rolename specified, only one will be displayed.

List

To display a list of multiple contacts/accounts in the Level 1 contacts/accounts section:

[#(?object=contact) ~fieldname~ #] or [#(?object=company) ~fieldname~ #]

See below for details on how to filter and sort the list(s).

  • Note: to display the role that the contact or account is assigned on the Level 1 record use: ~role~
  • Note: to display the name of the contact's company use: ~companyname~

Level 2 Contacts/Accounts

Individual

To display information for a single contact in the Level 2 contacts section:

@contacts.rolename.fieldname@

where:

  • rolename = the name of the role that has been assigned to the contact on the Level Two item
  • fieldname = the name of the field that is located on the contact's record.

Example:

@contacts.adjuster.firstname@

Note: if there is more than one contact assigned with the rolename specified, only one will be displayed.

Contacts

To display a list of the contacts assigned at Level 2:

[#(?object=contact) ~firstname~ ~lastname~ ~email~ #]

To display only contacts assigned at Level 2 with a specific role/roles (only relevant if the Level 2 Multiple Contact List is enabled)

[#(?object=contact::criteria=roleid=12345) ~firstname~ ~lastname~ ~email~ #]

To get the intersection record identifier (equivalent to ~oprid~ at Level 1) (i.e. for use in Pandora functions)

[#(?object=contact) ~lnkid~ #]

To display the contact's profile status:

[#(?object=contact) ~firstname~ ~lastname~ ~ustatusid~ #]

Notes:

  • Contacts at level 2 cannot be filtered by rolename, only roleid
  • If the multiple contact list is enabled use ~role~ to display the assigned role.

Accounts

To display information for a single account in the Level 2 accounts section:

@companies.rolename.fieldname@

To display a list of the companies assigned at Level 2:

[#(?object=company::orderby=name)~name~ #]

To get the intersection record identifier (i.e. for use in Pandora functions)

[#(?object=company) ~clnkid~ #]

Notes:

  • The Account standard field is only available at Level 2 when the Multiple Account list is enabled. See here for details.

To display Level 1 Company Role or Contact Role custom fields

[#(?object=company;)$?opc_customfieldid$#] or [#(?object=contact;)$?opr_customfieldid$#]


where:

  • customfieldid = the numeric id of the custom field

Note: for level 2 records (when the multiple contact/company list(s) are enabled) use $?opr2_customfieldid$ and $?opc2_customfieldid$

Following the same format above, you can also reference custom fields on the company role using the @#field id#@ syntax.

Contact Detail

~uprefix~ ~firstname~ ~lastname~

~uaddress~ ~uaddress2~

~ucity~, ~ustate~ ~upostalcode~

To display Company Association or Contact Association fields

The syntax for extracting information on the entity to which they are associated is as follows . . .

[#(?object=association)~name~ ~standard field name~ $?afc_custom field id$ $?afc_custom field name$#]

[#(?object=companyassociation)~standard field name~ $custom field id$ $custom field name$#]

where:

  • standard field name = name of the standard field
  • custom field id = the numeric id of the custom field
  • custom field name = the name of the custom field


The syntax for extracting information on fields that are on the intersection, rather than the entity to which they are associated, is as follows . . .

[#(?object=association) ~afcompanyid~ #]

[#(?object=companyassociation)~afroleid~ #]


Other intersection specific variables options include:

  • ~afcid~: association (intersection) record id.
  • ~afcompanyid~: companyid of associated company
  • ~afcontactid~: userid of associated contact
  • ~afroleid~: roleid of association
  • ~afstartdate~: start date of association
  • ~afenddate~: end date of association

Role Based Custom Fields

When you have a Custom Field such as a Web Page View or MS Word Merge that is located on a User Role or Company Role you can access:

UTA Level 1 Information:

@levelone.fieldname@ or @levelone.customfieldid@

Contact Information:

@contact.fieldname@ or @contact.customfieldid@

Company Information:

@company.fieldname@ or @company.customfieldid@

When you want to refer to a User Role based Custom Field from a UTA Level 1 record use the following syntax: Owner:

@owner.fieldname@

Person:

@person.fieldname@

Contact:

@contact.rolename.fieldname@
where rolename is the role they are assigned on the Level 1 record

To Display a List of Activities, Notes, Transactions, Contacts, Companies, Consumers, Providers

Syntax

[#(?object=objectname::{options})~standardfieldname~ $customfieldname$#]

Where:

  • objectname is the name of the item to be listed.
Either: address, activity, assign, contact, user, group, company, notes, association, companyassociation, transaction, timesheet, level-1, utaproviderL1, utaproviderL2, utaconsumerL1, utaconsumerL2 or linkactivity
  • standardfieldname is the name of a standard field (between tildes, ~)
  • customfieldname is the name of a custom field (between dollar signs, $)

Notes:

  • You can refer to Custom Fields in the list using the Custom Field ID instead of the field name, still between dollar signs ($12345$)
  • level-1 can only be used as an object when referenced from a contact record. Also level-1 will only list the level 1s that the contact has been added to in the contacts section.
  • You can include text as well as variables within the [#...#] syntax.
  • When using this syntax for Web Page Views, Read Only – System Variables etc. you will usually want to include HTML table formatting within the [#...#] syntax (see examples below). For MS Word Merge custom fields the table defined on the MS Word Template document, with the columns delimited by pipes (|) within the [#...#].
  • ~Index~ can be used to number the lines (1, 2, 3...) Note: ~index~ does not work for all lists. For example, it cannot be used when listing contacts associated with a Level 1.
    • ~Index~ (upper case 'I') starts numbering at 1, ~index~ (lower case 'i') starts numbering at 0.

~eventid~ will display the id of the level 2.


Options:

Option Effect
orderby=standardfieldname Sorts the list in ascending order by the standard field specified
orderby=standardfieldname desc Sorts the list in descending order by the standard field specified
orderby=tbl_customfieldid.valuestr Sorts the list in ascending order by the custom field specified
criteria=standardfieldname=value Filters the list by the standard field and value specified
criteria=tbl_customfieldid.valuestr=value Filter the list by the custom field and value specified
criteria=(standardfieldname=value or standardfieldname=value) For multiple criteria when either conditional criteria can apply
criteria=(standardfieldname=value AND standardfieldname=value) For multiple criteria when both conditional criteria must apply
groupfunction=aggregatefunction Performs specified aggregate function on the listed fields
Ex. sum, count, countdistinct
  • multiple options (i.e. a criteria and an orderby option) can be included, separated by doubled colons (::)

Important: Any custom fields that you use as criteria or orderby must appear in the display. If you do not wish to display the field you can place it in a comment. (i.e.: <!--$12343$-->) However, if referencing a field as a property of a table you must show the value.

Examples:

[#(?object=activity)|~statusname~|~typename~|$speciality$|$123456$|#]
See MS Word Merge for further details on including tables on MS Word Merge documents

Rolename ~rolename~
Role ID ~cevroleid~

Example:

[#(?object=utaproviderL2) ~typename~ | ~statusname~ <br />#]

If you have multiple different UTAs connected as providers, you  can use criteria to filter:

[#(?object=utaproviderL1::criteria=provappid="12345") ~typename~ | ~statusname~ <br />#]

To Format the Start Date or Start Time

~date_format(startdate,'%Y-%m-%d') as startdate~
or
~date_format(startdate,'%h:%i %p') as starttime~

Note:

  • If you wish to use "orderby=startdate", along with a date format other than yyyy-mm-dd you must use a slightly different syntax.
  • Using "~date_format(startdate,'%d-%m-%Y') as startdate~" when using "orderby=startdate" will cause the date to be ordered by dd-mm-yyyy (rather than yyyy-mm-dd, which is chronological)
  • To avoid this, change "date_format(startdate,'%d-%m-%Y') as startdate" to "date_format(startdate,'%d-%m-%Y') as sdate"

Displaying Both Level 2 and Level 3 Activities at Level 1

When displaying a list of Level 2 activities using the [#(?object=activity;)...#] syntax, the corresponding Level 3 activities can be displayed under each of the parent Level 2 activities.


To facilitate this you must create a Read Only - System Variable field at Level 2 that contains the list of Level 3 activities, formatted and filtered as desired.

You can use Visibility Conditions, Role Field Permissions or Status Field Permissions to prevent the field from being displayed on the Level 2 record.

Example:

[@(?object=activity::orderby=typename)@]

Level 3 Activity: ~typename~ ~location~

Then create either a Web Page View or Read Only - System Variable at Level 1:

[#(?object=activity::orderby=startdate) #]

Level 2 Activity: ~subject~ ~statusname~ ~startdate~ ~enddate~
$Level 3 Activity List$
where "Level 3 Activity List" is the name you gave the Read Only – System Variable field


Level 3s with Less Than 25 Fields

If Level 3 has less than 25 fields it is not necessary to create a Read Only – System Variable Custom Field on the Level 2 that lists the Level 3 activities.

Instead you can use the following syntax within the [#...#] that lists the Level 2 activities:

[@(?object=activity)~standardfieldname~ $customfieldname$@]

Note:

  • This syntax will only work if there are less than 25 fields at Level 3.

Example:

  • To display a list of Level 2 activities, including any Level 3 activities under their parent Level 2 activity:

[#(?object=activity::orderby=startdate) #]

Level 2 Activity: ~subject~ ~statusname~ ~startdate~ ~enddate~
[@(?object=activity;orderby=typename)@]
Level 3 Activity: ~typename~ ~location~

Displaying a Specific Number of Items in a List

When you want to display only specific number of activities or transactions in a Web Page View use the following syntax.

 [#(?object=object::orderby=field) 
    <!--@sslogic(~index~='num')--> 
       ~standard field~ $custom field$ <br /> 
    <!--@end--> 
  #] <br /> 

where:

  • num = number of activities that should be displayed

XML Variables

Count how many options were selected

<!--@sscalculation(@xml.XML Field.People.Person[#(?criteria="~type.nodevalue~" == "A") 1+#]@ 0)-->


Filtered XML display output

@xml.XML Field.People.Person[#(?criteria="~type.nodevalue~" == "A")~FirstName.nodevalue~ ~LastName.nodevalue~<br />#]@


Date/Time Variables

Standard Fields Date/Time

Variable List:

'Start Date'End Date'Close Date
Level 1 onlyModified Date'Display Format@startdate@@enddate@@closedate@@modifieddate@Date formatted according to user preferences (At Level 1 Modified Date also includes the time: 15:40)@longstartdate@@longenddate@@longclosedate@@longmodifieddate@Friday, January 23, 2009@fullstartdate@@fullenddate@@fullclosedate@@fullmodifieddate@2009-01-23 15:40:00@datetime(fullstartdate)@@datetime(fullenddate)@@datetime(fullclosedate)@@datetime(fullmodifieddate)@2009-01-23 15:40:00@date(fullstartdate)@@date(fullenddate)@@date(fullclosedate)@@date(fullmodifieddate)@2009-01-23
  • Note: Start Time and End Time are stored within the fullstartdate and fullenddate fields respectively. They can be accessed and formatted using the variables elements listed below.
To display specific elements of the Start Date, Start Time, End Date, End Time, Close Date, Modified Date:
@month(fullstartdate)@month number in Start Date@monthname(fullstartdate)@name of month in Start Date@day(fullstartdate)@day in Start Date@dayweek(fullstartdate)@name of day in Start Date@year(fullstartdate)@year in Start Date@hour(fullstartdate)@hour in Start Time using 12 hour clock (0-12)@ampm(fullstartdate)@AM or PM reference for Start Time@hour24(fullstartdate)@hour in Start Time using 24 hour clock (0-24)@minute(fullstartdate)@minute in Start Time
Note: For End Date, Close Date or Modified Date replace fullstartdate with fullenddate, fullclosedate or fullmodifieddate respectively.
(seconds are not available for standard date/time fields)
(Close Date does not have a time associated with it)
Examples:
  • To display the Start Date in the format February 22, 1985 you would use:
@monthname(fullstartdate)@ @day(fullstartdate)@, @year(fullstartdate)@
  • To display the End Time in the format 06:45PM you would use:
@hour(fullenddate)@:@minute(fullenddate)@@ampm(fullenddate)@

Current Date/Time

Examples:
  • To display the current date/time in the format Friday at 19:55 you would use:
@dayweek(currentdate)@ at @hour24(currentdate)@:@minute(currentdate)@

Custom Fields Date/Time

For a custom field on the same level as the Web Page View Field, you can parse out a particular date/time in a date field

VariableContentDisplay@date(fieldname)@custom field date as for yyyy-mm-dd2013-05-17 @month(fieldname)@month number in fieldname05@monthname(fieldname)@name of month in fieldnameMay@day(fieldname)@day in fieldname17@dayweek(fieldname)@name of day in fieldnameFriday@year(fieldname)@year in fieldname2013@hour(fieldname)@hour in fieldname using 12 hour clock (0-12)12@ampm(fieldname)@AM or PM reference for time in fieldnameAM@hour24(fieldname)@hour in fieldname using 24 hour clock (0-24)00@minute(fieldname)@minute in fieldname00@second(fieldname)@second in fieldname00 Examples:
  • To display the custom field Date Of Birth in the format 31-01-2001 you would use:
@day(date of birth)@-@month(date of birth)@-@year(date of birth)@ Note: This syntax will not work for custom fields on a different level. You will not be able to reference, for example, @day(parent.fieldname)@. To parse out date/time information from a custom field on a different level, use the sscalculation syntax.

Adding a File Upload button

To display a button to upload to a Single File or Multiple Files custom field:

  • Single File:
<input class="Button" type="button" value="Button Label" />
  • Multiple Files:
<input class="Button" type="button" value="Button Label." />

where:

  • customfieldid = the field id of the Single or Multiple file custom field (without cf_)

Example:

<input class="Button" type="button" value="Multiple files..." />

Note: if adding to a Web Page View you will need to add the following to the page:

function include_dom(script_filename) {
    var html_doc = document.getElementsByTagName('head').item(0);
    var js = document.createElement('script');
    js.setAttribute('language', 'javascript');
    js.setAttribute('type', 'text/javascript');
    js.setAttribute('src', script_filename);
    html_doc.appendChild(js);
    return false;
}
function includejsfiles() {
  include_dom("/validate.js");
}

You will also have to call the includejsfiles function in the body onload:



Alternatively:

You may also use @fieldname.uploadlink@ to get the url for the upload page and construct your own function to open the window.

Example:

<input class="Button" type="button" value="Upload" />
function openupload(url)
{ 
    upload_window = window.open(url,'upload_window', 'menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,width=800,height=600,status=no,resizable=yes,dependent=yes,alwaysRaised=yes');
    upload_window.opener = window;
    upload_window.focus();
}

Note: this method will only open the single file upload page.

How to display different content based on a value using SSlogic

To display content based on a value from a variable add <!--@sslogic('@branch.name@'='Internal Staff')--> in front of the content and <!--@end--> at the end of the content. If there are 2 different pieces of content to be displayed based on a value and all others add <!--@else--> between the 2 pieces of content.

<!--@sslogic(CONDITION)-->
   The content to be displayed when condition is true.
   This can be more than one line.
<!--@end-->
  • The content to be displayed (the middle line) can either be in plaintext or in HTML.
  • Be sure there are single quotes around the variable and value.
  • SSlogic does not support nested logic statements.

Example:

  • The following will display a Christmas tree image if the month is December:
<!--@sslogic(month(now())=12)-->
   <img src="images/xmasstree.jpg" alt="" />
<!--@end-->

See SSlogic for more information and further examples.
