Friday’s Tip-Creating memos for labels

Did you know that when creating a label you can write a ‘Memo’ that will link to that label and display a text description when that label is hovered over in a contents list? This is really handy for remembering what different label value represents or when handing a simulation over to colleagues.

Check out this step by step guide on how to do it!

1. Go to ‘Actions’ to create your ‘Label

2. Enter your label name

3. Click ‘Memo’ and type a description of your label

4. Once you’ve created your simulation, and you want to check the contents of your storage bin, and what work items are in it click on ‘Contents’ on the advanced tab of your storage bin.

5. When you view the contents of your storage bin, you can hover over item of the storage bin to view your memo.
