Add fields to the SurveyInternal dbdict record

User roles: System Administrator

SM surveys are based on survey templates. Each template contains a set of questions, which must be mapped to a field in the ServeyInternal dbdict record. Before users can create their own survey templates, you must add the required mapping fields to the ServeyInternal dbdict record.

To add fields to the dbdict record, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Service Manager Windows client as a system administrator.
  2. Enter dbdict in the command line, and then press Enter.
  3. Enter SurveyInternal in the File Name field, and then click Search.
  4. On the Fields tab, select the descriptor row and then click New Field/Key.
  5. Add a field to the dbdict.

    Caution The following field types are supported: character, number, logical, and array. For the array type, only the character subtype is supported.

  6. Repeat the steps to add more fields as needed.
  7. When you have finished adding all of the required fields, click OK.
  8. Click SM Alters to save your changes to the dbdict record.

Note These fields will be available to select from the Field Name field when users add a question to a survey template. For more information, see Create a survey template.
