The DB Options tab in Gopher Options is used to specify whether or not certain functions should be performed in Gopher.
Write Gopher Notes: If you would like Gopher to automatically add a note to the applicable person’s note pad when resumes are imported, resumes are emailed, interviews are scheduled, placements are made and emails are sent, this option should be checked. Selecting this feature will automate Gopher and prevents the user from having to manually add and type the notes when these actions are performed.
Profile deletes and ownership password protected: If you would like the user to be required to type a password when a profile record is deleted or the ownership is changed, this option should be checked. The password is assigned on the DB Security tab in Gopher Options. Refer to Setting Database Security (DB Security tab) for more information on assigning the password.
Profile record date changes on update: If you would like the record date on a profile record to update to the current date when a change is made on the profile record, this option should be checked. If you would like the record date to always reflect the original date the profile record was added to Gopher, this option should not be checked.
User log on requires password: If you would like each user to be required to type a password, in addition to their user ID, when opening Gopher, this option should be checked. The password for each user will be assigned on the User Security tab in Gopher Options. Refer to Setting User Security (User Security tab) on for more information on assigning the password.
Validate Company: If you would like Gopher to validate a company name when typed, this option should be checked. When the first three characters of the company name are typed, Gopher will then perform a search of all previously entered company names to determine if there is a match. If one match is found, the company name will automatically fill in and can be changed if necessary. If more than one match is found, a drop down list will appear showing all matches and the user can select the correct company if listed.
Turning this feature on minimizes data entry errors and inconsistencies and increases accuracy when performing queries.
