Compass Collectables allows you to view your records in two different formats. The first format is a list view for easy searching for the record you want. The second is a form view with a larger image area.
Collection Specific Fields
Compass Collectables has specific field setups for the following collections. For detailed information on each collection type, follow the links below:
Filtering, Grouping & Searching
The filtering function works very similar way to using Microsoft Excel. Columns can be filtered to fit within your set criteria e.g. you may only want to view items that are from Antarctica.
Grouping lets you arrange your records in a folder like structure by common data. A common way to group Bank Notes would be by Country then by Currency providing a folder like structure where you could open a country then view all the Currencies for that country; then you could open the currency folder to view the records.
The layout can be modified to best suit your needs. You can hide the fields that are not applicable to your collection, change the order in which the fields appear and then save this template as the default for the future.
Advanced Record Copying
Advance record copying allows you to duplicate a records data into a new record. It also allows you to setup a default copy rule so that you only copy the information that is relevant for your new records. Great for when you are adding many similar records.
Drop Down Data Lists
Drop down data lists are user definable drop down lists for easy data insertion. Many fields use the same values repeatedly e.g. country, status, material & currency. By using a drop down data list you can add values that are used frequently to the list making it quicker and easier to add information.
Web Site Creation
Compass Collectables allows you to easily design and maintain a website of your collection that you can share with your friends. Once you have added your collection to Compass Collectables a website can be created by following just a few easy steps.
Some features of the website include:
- Many different color schemes and layouts to choose from
- Upload images of your collection
- Ability to only publish the information you want e.g. prevent fields like price paid from being published
- Ability to watermark your images
- Your own subdomain e.g. http://your-user-name.compasscollectables.com
