Any shape can have data associated with it. Shape data is a great way to add important information to diagrams like organizational charts, sales territory maps, floor plans, and network diagrams. Data is basically a set of fields and associated values. For example, for a floor plan, you may want to create a manifest that has a description, an asset number, a serial number, a price, and location information associated with each shape in the diagram.
To add data to a shape, you'll use the Data tab of the SmartPanel to the left of your work area.
Define the Data Associated a Shape
To associate data with a shape, select the shape first and then click on the Data tab. You'll notice that if no data is associated with the shape yet, the values will be blank for each field in your schema. To add a value to any field, click on the blank box and type. If there is data associated with the shape already, the values will not be blank and you can change them using this tab.
See the Data Associated with Any Shape
To see the data associated with any shape, you can select the shape and then click on the Data tab. As we mentioned above, this view also allows you modify these values. If you just want to see the values associated with the shape, you can hover your mouse over the blue information icon on the shape to see a modal of data information.
