MyWraps actions for administrators

The Action button in the MyWraps toolbar opens the Action dropdown menu that lets you perform actions on the selected wraps.

Most of the Actions only appear if you are a Wrapsite administrator. Some actions only appear for Roles that have Create or Delete permission. Many actions apply only to selected wraps and are deactivated until you select at least one wrap in the list.

  • Create New Wrap – Opens an empty instance of the Wrap template in your browser. If you save it, it is added as a new wrap.
  • Bulk Action 2 – Opens a list of your Bulk Action wraps. Select the Bulk Action wrap you wish to run for the selected target wraps and press Apply. Make the necessary changes in the Bulk Action wrap and press Save to apply these changes to the selected target wraps.
  • Request Selected Wraps for PDF Creation 1 – Enqueues the selected wraps as a wrap job to be printed to PDF using the print-to-PDF settings. Manual PDF generation is available for Wraps generated with WrapCreator 10.8 or later. If you have any issues with PDF generation. you may want to convert the Wrap with the latest version of WrapCreator and test printing with the new version of the Wrap.
  • Request Selected Wraps for PDF Export 1 – Places a job on the server queue that exports the most recent PDF file created for the selected Wraps. Exported PDFs appear on the Wrap Exports screen.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Recalculation 1 – A wrap job is created to recalculate the selected wraps using the most recent version of the Wrap template.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Admin Freeze 1 – When all work has been performed for a wrap, it is normally signed off and frozen in its final stage. Administrators can also freeze wraps without signing them. This can be useful when saving KPIs automatically, to ensure that KPI wraps for past periods are always frozen. This action is queued as a wrap job.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Admin Unfreeze 1 – If you Admin Freeze a wrap by mistake, you can unfreeze it using the Admin Unfreeze action. If a wrap is frozen by a signature, you cannot use this action; a signed wrap has to be unsigned by someone with the authority to do so, and then automatically also becomes unfrozen. This action is queued as a wrap job.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Export 1 – The selected Wraps are queued for copying into a file for export. Uploaded media files are not included in the exported file. Any newly exported files appear at the top of the Wrap Exports screen as soon as they are available. Click on the Download button to download each file. You can open the exported file directly in Excel; read more about exporting wrap data to Excel. Exported wraps can be imported again using the Import button on the Wrap definitions page. Signatures and uploaded media files will not be imported.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Export incl history 1 – This produces the same result as the option above but each instance is immediately followed by its editing history (if any) in descending order of the lastmodified timestamp.
  • Request Selected Wraps for Deletion 1 – Enqueues the selected wraps for deletion. You will then be taken to the server queue where you can follow the job that was created. Note: Deleting wraps is a very rare operation that you would normally do only during development and testing. If you delete a wrap by mistake, you can restore it again on the Administration dashboard. Media files cannot be restored. When you delete wraps with media files, you may want to save the media files first, to be on the safe side if you need them later.
  • Request All Wraps for Export – This produces the same result as if you had selected all the wraps in the current view. Read more under Request Export Selected Wraps above.
  • Request All Wraps for Export incl history – This produces the same result as the option above but each instance is immediately followed by its editing history (if any) in descending order of the lastmodified timestamp.
  • Request All Wraps for PDF Creation – Enqueues all the wraps to be printed to PDF using the print-to-PDF settings. Manual PDF generation is available for Wraps generated with WrapCreator 10.8 or later. If you have any issues with PDF generation. you may want to convert the Wrap with the latest version of WrapCreator and test printing with the new version of the Wrap. By default, only Administrators can request PDFs to be created in bulk. You can grant this ExcelWraps feature permission also to other Roles.
  • Request All Wraps for PDF Export – Places a job on the server queue that exports the most recent PDF file created for each Wrap. Exported PDFs appear on the Wrap Exports screen.

A “delete all” job can be partly undone. Open the Server Queue, select the completed delete job, and perform the Undo action. This creates a new job that restores all the deleted wraps. Media files cannot be restored. When you delete wraps with media files, you may want to save the media files first, to be on the safe side if you need them later.
  • Request All Wraps update IsLastFrozen – If you want to produce a report that only includes the AutoNumber that was LastFrozen, you will achieve better performance if you use the IsLastFrozen primary filter to limit the initial retrieval to only the single wrap that was last frozen. The IsLastFrozen property is updated asynchronously but if data is constantly updated you may wish to ensure that the last frozen wrap is set as IsLastFrozen immediately before you filter for it. This action is queued as a wrap job.
