When a category is opened, the user gets a view similar to the one shown below. Users with edit rights get the option to edit ship profiles. Other users will get a read only version.
To edit a field's value, simply change the value and press the checkmark button that appears when a value is changed. Once the value is successfully saved, the button will turn green and then slowly disappear.
If an invalid input is written to a field, the field will turn red and user will most likely (there are few exceptions) be able to save the value. Instead of turning green, the save button will be shown with exclamation icon instead of a checkmark.
If an update is available for a field, it is shown next to the field. By hovering over the suggested value, the user will get the option to move it to the edit field from where it can then be saved. Suggested values can be from either of the following sources:
- From available data sources
- From your own version of the profile (in case you are filling out a profile shared with you)
More information about available updates is given on Checking for available updates.
Manual editing - the old way
Note: the options listed below are depreciated and will be removed in future version.
While working on a ship profile as explained in Specification, users can manually edit the information given by selecting the pencil icon (on box and tabular view). Edit mode in box view is shown below while in tabular view users can edit all categories at the same time.
Each field can have various forms of display in edit mode as demonstrated in the figure above. Fields can be displayed as view only (IMO number) or editable (other fields) based on rights given to the user. Each field does also have a validation mechanism connected to all edits, which shows valid inputs in green (Call sign) and invalid in red (E-mail address). Note that thousand separators should not be used since those make a numeric field invalid. Also note that fields that require input for review process have a small asterisk (*) next to it.
The fuel consumption dialog is slightly different from other dialogs since it offers the option to switch input values for fuel consumption between metric tonnes per 24 hours (MT/day) and kilograms per nautical mile (kg/nm). These options are given for both Speed related info and MCR related info. Note that all fuel values already entered into the fields will be converted when the conversion link is clicked.
