You now have the ability to edit Custom & Reference labels in Schedule Xpress. These labels give you the opportunity to rename the default labels that Celayix platforms provide.

You may be used to editing these in eTime Xpress in the Configuration section. But this newer method simplifies the approach.

Note: It's likely your labels are already set as you need them. This article is to explain where to go should you need to change one in the future.


This article will cover the following steps in Custom & References labels in Schedule Xpress:


Locating the labels

The labels can be found in the Settings are of Schedule Xpress. Please see the image below.

Note: Before diving in any further, it's important to note that on all sections in this article, we will be referring to these Reference labels as per their system default name. If you have changed these, they may be named different. The system default name can be seen within each Reference label. We discuss this a little further down.

Note: The Reference value can be categorized in any way you want. For example, you may want to choose Y for Yes as displayed above. Or N for No. Or you may leave it blank if the Reference doesn't need to be categorized. Either way, for some, it's a great way of having creating a space to add additional information.
