Event Editor

Professional's event editor can edit local events within Professional's Event Library, and remote events residing on Macs across the network.

To being using the event editor, double-click on any event.

The editor is divided into major and minor sections.

The major sections are separated by blue bars. These major sections represent the major sections of the event: the triggers, criteria and conditions, and the actions.

At the top of the event editor is the event's settings. These fields include the presentation information, such as the event name and notes fields.

The Triggers, Criteria and Conditions, and Actions sections are similarly laid out. Each section may contain none, one, or many subsections. Each subsection represents a individual trigger, condition, or action.

You can add, move, and remove sections using the Action (cog) menu. An Action (cog) menu is provided for each section and each menu affects only its section.

For detailed information about the available triggers, conditions, and actions, refer to the Power Manager: Developer guide. The complete event structure is documented including details of each field.
