Enable Rich Text Editor or Spreadsheet widgets


For certain fields, it is possible to enable the use of a Rich Text Editor (RTE) or a spreadsheet component. Instance admin rights are necessary for this.


The RTE can be enabled for properties of type MULTILINE_VARCHAR. The spreadsheet component can be enabled for properties of type XML.


Procedure:

  1. Properties are defined when creating new entity types (Datasets, Objects, Experiments/Collections)
  2. To set a property as RTE or spreadsheet go to the Settings, under Utilities
  3. Enable editing and scroll down to the Custom Widgets section
  4. Click the + button on the same line as Property Type and Widget, as shown below
  5. A new field will appear where you can select the property type and the widget. Choices are: Word Processor (=RTE) or Spreadsheet.
