Configuring An Electronic Profile

By selecting a Profile from the Profile dropdown, you can start configuring a profile or make changes.

Profile Types

For basic configuration the Profile Type will be one of the Generic types out of the box. For example, if you are connecting to a Shared Drive, select “Generic - Share Drive”, or a Sharepoint site would be “Generic - Sharepoint”. Depending on you WISPIR license, more or less Profile Types maybe available.

Container/Content

These two dropdowns allow you to specify what WISPIR type your folders and files, in the case of a Share Drive, would be mapped two. You can select the appropriate type for your WISPIR implementation here. Out of the box, typically you would select and EFolder and EFile respectively.

Main System Properties

From the dropdowns, you can specify how your would like the items from this Profile to be predefined. For example, Site, Sublocation, Department, Records Category, Activity, Primary and Secondary can be mapped.

Records Classification

Set a default Records classification for Content synced for this Electronic Profile.
Note: Depending on your repository configuration, this could consist of a Classification or a Primary and Secondary shown below.

Location

The location textbox is the drive location or URL to the source you wish to connect to. This can be a local drive, network drive or URL.

Examples:

C:\Users\sawyert\Documents

For each Electronic Profile you will have a node on the left hand pane. From here you can navigate the contents.

            Note, if the Source is not reachable, it will show with a  forbidden icon. If the Sync has been performed on this Electronic Profile, it will still be browsed from the content information but new info or opening files will not be available.

Functional View

Based on the Synced Electronic Profile and the data mapped to its content, we generate a new Restructured View of the content. This is primarily built from the Department, Function and Activity out of the box.

Functional View Filter

The Restructure treeview can be filtered to show just Populated Department, Function and Activity or areas that contain just Electronic Files (ie: content that has an associated path or URL associated with them)
