Creating your own fields

In some cases, you may need different or additional fields to those provided by your AXM Classic. Additional fields for person properties are also exported in the GDPR report (see Exporting the data protection report (GDPR)).

For this reason, you can also create your own fields (see Subsequently modified user-defined fields for more information on the properties of your own fields):

  1. AXM Classic open.
  2. Identification medium available.
  1. Click on the orange AXM icon .
  2. AXM bar opens.
  3. Select the Transponder entry in the LOCKING SYSTEM CONTROL group.
  4. The AXM bar will close.
  5. The window with identification media opens.
  6. Click on any identification medium.
  7. The identification medium window will open.
  8. Click on the Person details tab.
  9. Window switches to the Person details tab.
  10. Click on the configuration button.
  11. The Configuration window will open.
  12. Click on the Add button.
  13. The Configuration window will open.
  14. Enter the name of your user-defined field in the Name field (example: office no.).
  15. This name will be displayed in front of the input field later.
  16. If an entry in your field needs to be mandatory: activate the Required check box (example: office no. is not mandatory – not every employee has an office with a number).
  17. If an entry in your field must not be reused for the same field for another person: activate the Clearly check box (example: office no. is not clear – a number of employees work in the same office – therefore do not activate the check box).
  18. Click on the Finish button.
  19. Configuration window closes.
  20. Your new user-defined field is now listed.
  21. Click on the OK button.
  22. Configuration window closes.
  23. The identification medium window displays your new user-defined field in the Person details tab (example: The office no. field is displayed).
  24. Click on the Finish button.
  1. Your new user-defined field is available in all locking systems belonging to the same project.



AXM Classic’s behaviour with user-defined fields created or modified at a later date

User-defined fields can be created at any time and changed at a later date. Example: you create a required field even though some people already exist in the locking system.

This results in this newly created required field being empty for existing persons, even though it is marked as Required.
