Editing event codes
Event codes use versioning to manage history and changes to the configurations. Editing an existing event code is performed via the action Create new version that is available by selecting the button on the event code list or on the Actions menu on the event code information screen.
In addition, for an event code that has a version configured for a future date, the Edit version action is available. The Edit version eliminates the need to create a new version for a future configuration that needs modification.
If the Edit version or Create new version actions are not available, in the list or Action menu, an existing update for this event code is pending approval.
These actions open the Event code information screen for modifications. The fields for modifications are the same as those used in creating a new event code. Once the modifications have been completed, the changes, along with a comment for the approver, can be submitted for approval. A new version will be created once these changes are approved. You can discard the changes or save for later if appropriate.
If the version start date or end date conflicts with an existing version of this event code an appropriate warning will be displayed. The end date of the previous version will be populated once the new version is approved. This date will be set to the start date of this new version minus one day. If the new version start is set to today, a warning stating that this date might be changed on approval will be displayed prior to submission.
