NavBar Pageset - Editing Quickfire Messages

July 27, 2016

  kA1G00000008u80KAA_en_US_1_0 The specific QuickFires in your software were chosen because they cover a broad range of purposes and are highly flexible across interactions.  If you want to personalize QuickFires, we would suggest doing so with a word or phrase that means the same thing and is equally flexible (e.g., “okie dokey” for OK or “excellent” for “good”) - or consider using the blanks we have provided.

1.  Select QUICKFIRESin the Navigation Bar.
Take note of the number of rows and columns you see.  Your configuration may be different than what is shown in the examples below.


2.  Select the Modify button in the top right corner of the page, choose Settings, then Page Browser, then select the page you're editing and choose Editor.
  • You may see more QuickFires than you have in your current setup.  All QuickFires for all Levels are shown.
  • Take a moment to locate your active QuickFires.  In our example, the active Quickfires are indicated with a red box.
  • Also look to see if the QuickFire you want to add is already shown on the page, perhaps among the inactive QuickFires.
If the QuickFire you want is not listed, continue on in this article to Editing a QuickFire.

2.  Locate the active QuickFire to make inactive.

3.  Swap your chosen QuickFire with an unwanted active one. Drag your wanted QuickFire over the unwanted one, and drop it.
