NM Collector Cross Platform Tutorial - 3. Navigation

Updated: Dec 10, 2023



Home Page

This is the first page that appears when you open the program. It lists the items in your selected collection. The last collection you selected appears here by default.


Menu

Many features are accessible through the menu. Most of those features will be covered in other tutorials. The help > about menu is very helpful because it shows you where your data is located on your current platform. Here is an example for my Windows deployment.



Collection Selection Drop Down

This drop down allows you to select from currently available collection templates.

Collection Selection Drop Down

Add

Search

This will show only items that match the text entered in the search box.


Stats

This will open the statistics window which shows you a table of your items for the selected collection and summary statistics for those items.

Stats Page

On this page you can:

  • Change the collection using the drop down.

  • Sort by values in the columns by clicking the column headers.

  • Search for values in the table.

  • Scroll through pages in the table using the page selector to the left of the search box.

  • Go to an item in the table by clicking its row.


Print

This generates an internal (not published to the web) page that opens in your local browser which can then be used to print the contents.


Item

When you click an item in the list it will open up a set of tabs that contain information about that item. It starts in the ID tab.

Properties found within each tab will vary by type of collection and are customizable. The buttons to the right of drop downs allow you to add, remove, and edit values in the drop down lists.
