How are Record Properties set up in Data Management?

Once an Organization is created, Record Setup created and/or assigned, and the ID template built, it is time to create the Record Properties that will manage the data, photos, and printing of the Card Group (Record Properties and Record Management).

Record Properties

daat managment propertiesIn the Record Properties section, there are also some components of Record Management; however, they are limited, and it is recommended to only manage the Properties aspect in this section.


Before editing, make sure the Record Property is not in an Approved state.  If in an Activated state, the Reopen icon will be seen; select it, and then select OK in the Confirmation screen to continue. Once editing is finished, select the Activated icon and then select OK in the Confirmation screen to complete.

  • Custom Fields (if applicable)
  • Select the Save Icon, and then when finished, select Activate so the Record Property is ready to be used.  If not Activated, it may appear to work; however, some functionality may be inactivated.
