This article explains how to use and save a Custom SIF export template.
The Custom SIF is used to re-direct specific SIF Codes into a different column. This allows
you to pre-configure what information gets exported into a column; saving you editing time.
The table below lists the column names and the associated SIF Codes used in the application.

To access the Custom SIF, follow these steps:

Configuring a Custom SIF
When opening Settings for the first time, you will see the column names and the associated SIF Codes.
In this example, TAG1 was updated to export as the GC SIF Code (commonly known as "Generic Code") and TAG2 was updated to export as the TG SIF Code (commonly known as "Tag" or "Tag 1").
TAG1 or (TG) Values → TAG1 Column; TAG2 or (GC) Values → TAG2 Column
TAG1 or (TG) Values → TAG2 Column; TAG2 or (GC) Values → TAG1 Column
To update how the column information is exported, follow these steps:
- Locate the column you want to update.
- Click on the drop-down arrow to view the SIF Code options.
- Select the new SIF Code.
- Repeat to update additional columns.
