Link fields – Just click and go

Link and Link List fields are available in X-Info Connect and provide access from data in X-Info Connect to other sources such as a file, URL or identifier (email, website, X-Info Maps tab or other applications).

Q1: What are Link and Link List Fields?

A1: The fields enable a link to be added in X-Info Connect (XIC) to another source such as a File, URL or Identifier. The links allow users to access information stored in other sources such as a document store, website, email, X-Info Maps or other mapping sources or even another XIC connection.

Q2: What is the difference between a Link field and a Link List field?

A2: The Link field contains a single link to a source and a Link List field contains multiple links to multiple records.

Q3: How is the link displayed?

A3: Link fields can be displayed as text, where the link is accessed by an ‘open link’ button or a hyperlink that, once clicked, takes the user to the source of the linked data. The Link List is unique as it can display multiple links side by side separated by a space or comma.

Q4: Can a Link field be edited by the user?

A4: Editing is dependent on what display type has been selected by the administrator. Editing is possible if the display is set to Textbox or Listbox but not possible if the display is set to hyperlink.
