Note: The term edit refers to changing items using the Edit button. See the Modify section. The term modify refers to changing items using the Modify menu item and the Modify dialog box as described in this section.

The Modify dialog box allows you to modify attributes of a single item (single modify feature) or multiple items at once (global modify feature). For example, you can open the Global Search Viewer or a Tailored Summary in a display panel and select one or more items from the table to modify; or you could send a modification to change the Authorization Category of all VAV boxes in your facility from General to HVAC. Only attributes common to all items being modified appear in the Global Modify dialog box.

The single modify feature uses the Modify dialog box. The global modify feature uses the Global Modify dialog box for sending modifications and uses the Change Results Viewer for viewing, saving, and printing the sent global modifications.

For information on the Change Results Viewer and how to use it, see the Change Results Viewer section. The Change Results Viewer is used by both the Global Modify and the Global Commands features.

See Using Global Modify with Global Search in this section for steps on using the Global Search and Global Modify features together.
