When you discover one garment component shows in styles repeatedly, you are likely to copy its information from techpack to techpack. On Techpacker, this can be easily done by copying cards.
But what if we need to change the component or its details after copying? N Do we need to trace techpacks with this card and update them one by one?
No way! On Techpacker, you can "Connect" to synchronize all changes on copied cards, including
- Bill of Material Tables / Point of Measurement Tables
Here is a step by step guide -
1. Activate "Connect Cards"
On Techpack Dashboard, hover on "..." at the lower right corner of a card and click copy icon (see image below). Note: The connect card feature is not yet available when multiple cards are selected.
Copy cards to existing techpacks or new techpacks and you'll see the "Connect Cards" option. Check it to make the connection between cards of different techpacks (see image below).
The link icon next to the card title indicates a successful connection (see image below).
2. Confirm card synchronization / Disconnect cards
Once you make changes on a connect card and click save, an alert pop-up will appear. The pop-up displays techpacks containing this card and ask if you would like to synchronize all connect cards (see image below).
There are 2 options -
- Save on all cards - all updates on this card will be reflected in other connect cards;
- Disconnect and save on this card only - only this card is updated. When you make changes on cards it previously connected with, this card is NOT updated accordingly.
Worry Free Reminder - Both synchronization and disconnection are IRREVERSIBLE.
Apart from connecting cards, you can consider creating templates in "My Favorites" and make all final changes there.
