Various modules provide you with different insights into your data. As the terminology can vary from organization to organization, you can rename the modules to ensure their purpose is clear to everyone on your team.
In this section, you can use the toggle switches to specify which modules are available by default in all Boxes of a given Box type. Additionally, you can change the module names.
Activating the modules and editing their names functions the exact same way as in the Modules configuration section of a Box.
Keep in mind:
- A “Box type” contains the default settings applicable to multiple Boxes (all Boxes of a given type). Those settings are adjusted in Box type administration.
- Box configuration refers to the settings of a single, individual Box. They are dependent on the “Box type” settings.
Security and access
Only a user with the App admin security role can access and change the Box type configuration.
- Access the Administration page and go to the Box types tab.
- Click on a name of a Box type to access its configuration settings.
- Go to General > Modules
Default module names
When you update a name of a module, all respective links and tabs in the Box configuration are renamed as well.
Changes made to the default Module names apply only to Boxes of a given type created after settings have been adjusted. Existing Boxes are not affected (a manual update is required for each existing Box).
For example, the Gantt module is commonly used as a Product Roadmap, since it offers a timeline view and can also display Sub-Boxes, such as Program Increments or Iterations.
Default active modules
When you deactivate a module, all related configuration tabs as well as the module links will disappear. You can reactivate the module at any time without losing your data.
Changes made to the default active Modules apply only to Boxes of a given type created after settings have been adjusted. Existing Boxes are not affected (a manual update is required for each existing Box).
