Creating and Saving Hourline Display Lists

Click on the Hourline icon to access the Hourline menu.


From the Hourline menu go to Options and select Clear View to remove all Objects from the View to start with an empty Display List.

The most efficient way to use the Display Lists is to organize Objects into Groupings. These can be expanded and collapsed to improve the overview of listed Objects depending on how much information is needed.


Grouping is the general term for the collection of Objects to be viewed in the Display List of the Hourline. 

Please note that the Grouping in the Hourline is different from the Groups and/or Object Categories that can be configured in the Setup of the Server application through the Objects tab.


To create a new Grouping click on the Hourline icon > Options > New Grouping.

In the popup window type a name and click on the icon button to choose an icon for the Grouping.

To add Objects to a Grouping open the Objects window in the Toolbox and select and drag the required Objects into the Grouping.

There’s no limit to the number of Groupings that can be added to a Display List.

To change the order of the Groupings in the Display List or edit the created Groupings click on the Grouping icon to retrieve its context menu and access the following options:

  • Edit: Change the name or the icon of the Grouping
  • Move up: Move a Grouping above another one
  • Move Down: Move a Grouping beneath another one
  • Remove: Delete a Grouping (and all Objects inside)
To sort the Groupings and Objects alphabetically click on the Hourline icon > Options > Sort Objects.

Lastly the size of each Object’s timeline can be adjusted by toggling between Big and Small size. Click on Hourline icon > Options > Toggle Big/Small.

Once the Objects and Groupings have been set up in the Display List, it can be saved by clicking on the Hourline > Options > Save Selection.

Choose a name for the Display List and click OK. The User can save as many Display Lists as required.

The Display List can also be removed permanently by clicking Hourline icon > Remove Saved Selection.


Once the Objects and Groupings have been set up in the Display List, it can be saved by clicking on the Hourline > Options > Save Selection.

Choose a name for the Display List and click OK. The User can save as many Display Lists as required. 

The Display List can also be removed permanently by clicking Hourline icon > Remove Saved Selection.















Another way to create Display Lists is to bypass the use of Groupings and load Objects directly from an Object Class, a Group or a Category.

Please note that selecting an Object using one of the following options will clear any previously selected Objects from the View.

Load From Classes: Retrieve and display all Objects assigned to a particular Object Class

Load From Groups: Retrieve and display Objects assigned to particular Groups

Load From Categories: Retrieve and display Objects from a particular Category

If the customer has recently upgraded from Farmers WIFE to Farmers WIFE and is still on a dual license, there are two more options at the bottom of this menu. These items refer to Display Lists created in the Display List Editor in Farmers WIFE.

Load Local Display List: Loads a Display List created and saved by the User in Farmers WIFE

Load Global Display List From Other Users: Loads a Display List created and saved as Global by another User in Farmers WIFE
