How to Edit Components

Note: See the MOC Roles to determine if you have the ability to suggest or approve component edits in Chateau. Edits suggested by the suggester will have to be cleared in the MOC porch. Edits made by the approver will apply to the components immediately.

To edit a component in the field with Chateau Mobile:

  1. If you are not already in the component’s Quick View, find the component you want to edit through searching the tag in the current tour, or use Search by Tag in the main menu.

  2. Go to the Component Details page by clicking VIEW FULL DETAILS.

  3. Find the property you want to edit, and remember to look through all the tabs. If you still cannot find it, check Chateau Mobile Fields.

  4. Tap the round blue button with a pencil icon to enter the edit mode. In the edit mode the border will be highlighted in red.

  5. Tap on the property you wish to edit, enter the new value and the change reason. Tap SAVE when you are done.
