Version:
    Last Modified: September 14, 2018

    Add metadata to your project to include supplemental information in your log files.

    1. In your Logging specification document, specify values for the Operator and DUT in the Project metadata section, if desired. The fields for Operator and DUT are auto-populated, but can be changed or deleted, if desired. The logged-in user account name is the default value for Operator.
    2. To add additional arbitrary metadata, click Add property. A new line is added to the project metadata table.
    3. To customize the Property name and Property value, click the text you wish to change to highlight it, and type to replace the text.

      Property names must begin with a letter and cannot contain symbols. Duplicate Property Names will automatically be appended with sequential numbering.

      Property values can begin with or contain any characters supported by your system encoding.

    4. Click the Start Logging button to begin logging data. The log file is created on the Data tab of your project.
    Open the TDMS log file in the FlexLogger TDMS Viewer. The metadata is located under Custom Properties in the properties pane.
