   Export Manager Column Headings Configurable

Note that this enhancement is a configurable, optional feature available to all CASs for the next cycle launch. Please see your Account Manager for more information.

You can now customize the column headings in Export Manager templates. When selecting fields, the default column headings display in gray. If you manually change them, the new column headings display in black. Note that:

  • You can enter up to a maximum of 255 characters for your new column heading.
  • You can’t use the same column heading for different fields in an export template.
  • If you select a “many” field, WebAdMIT automatically appends “_0, _1, etc.” to the end of your column heading, as needed.
  • If you carry forward an export template that has custom column headings through the Transfer Settings feature, the custom column headings will also carry forward.

To view all default column headings, click Support Resources under the Usage Help panel and download the Custom Export Field Layout file. The field names default to the data in the Identifier column.
