Create from Existing Components using Online Search

Step 1

Select a manufacturer component in the component library and select the real time page from the control tabs. In the list of matched components, right-click on the manufacturer component and select the option to add the components to the library.

Step 2

If a manufacturer or supplier name doesn't exist for any of the components to be created, then you will be prompted to either add them or select alternative names. A dialog box will then appear showing the components that will be added or updated to the component library.

Step 3

A green check mark icon is shown for existing components, a blue addition icon for components pending addition, and a pink addition icon for attributes pending update. Attribute values can be modified in the properties page. To ignore a supplier component uncheck the associated checkbox. The price attribute will be updated with real time data if configured to do so in the user settings.

Step 4

After the components have been successfully added or updated, the component library navigator will be automatically refreshed.
