Data Linking and Field Mapping

Data linking streamlines the process of posting data to multiple status boards by enabling you to send information from one status board to another. It also ensures information integrity across multiple boards.

One-way and two-way data linking are supported in WebEOC. By default, data linking is set to One-way Data Linking.

Data Link

Scenario

One-way Data Linking

Board A is linked to Board B. Updates to data linked fields in Board A update Board B, but updates to data-linked fields in Board B do not update in Board A.

Two-way Data Linking

Board A is linked to Board B. Updates to data linked fields in Board A update Board B, and updates to data-linked fields in Board B update the linked entry in Board A.

  • Changes made to a data-linked entry are replicated on each board to which that data item has been linked.

  • Rules for linking data between boards are built and stored in the Board Editor utility of the Boards Manager. A board can be linked to one or multiple boards, or it may not be linked at all.

  • One data link template is added for each board to which it will link. The WebEOC administrator maps the fields in the source board to specified fields in the target boards.

  • For each data link template that is set up, a Data Link check box is added to the input view of the source board.

Field Mapping

Automatic

If your destination field names match the source field names, select Mapped Fields to automatically select them.

Custom

In some cases, you may want to map a field that has a different name on the destination board than it had on the originating board.
