File Cabinet Settings

 
     

WinTOTAL’s File Cabinet settings allows you to enable or disable the Detailed View in the Appraisal Desktop, change the alternate report color WinTOTAL uses in the File Cabinet or configure the “stop lights” you see there.  To access and change WinTOTAL’s File Cabinet settings…

  1. From the General Settings section of WinTOTAL Configuration Utility, click File Cabinet in the General pane to the left.
  2. Mark your preferred options from those provided.  Options are:
    • Automatically expand details grid - Enables the File Cabinet’s automatic detailed view expansion feature.
    • Animate expanded row details in the Files PowerView – When checked, WinTOTAL automatically slides the detailed file view onto the screen as you access each report.  When this option is unchecked, the detailed view simply pops open.
    • Alternating Row Color - Controls the background color that WinTOTAL uses for every other row in the File Cabinet.
    • Grid Background Color – Controls the color that WinTOTAL uses as the background color for the details view.

File Cabinet Stop Lights

This setting enables the Appraisal Desktop to automatically track the status of your reports and present them in a simple color-coded “stop-light” view.

  1. From the General Settings section of WinTOTAL Configuration Utility, click File Cabinet in the General pane on the left.
  2. If you want to manage file status on your own, select the Manual state only option. To have WinTOTAL manage the process, click Automatic state, then select from the reporting options presented.
    • Currently you can base the stop-light reporting on a comparison of the date you sign a report to either the Due Date, the Order Date or the Appraisal Start Date. Choose one of these options from the Compare with drop-down menu.
    • Adjust the date thresholds for the yellow and red alert levels. Enter the number of days before or after the “Compare with” date, choosing Before or After from the drop-down menu.
