On missions I create folders for tasks planned, tasks in progress, and tasks completed. Is there a way to have those assignments (area, line, buffer) display as separate colors based on the folder? Thanks!!

    Hi Bob,

    You can change the color of objects within the same folder using the Bulk Ops function at the bottom of the folder.

    Alternatively, do you ever use Assignments (Line Assignment, Area Assignment etc)? If so, you can set the status of each assignment (draft, prepared, in progress or completed) and then you can set the assignments to be colored by status using the Display Settings link at the bottom of the Assignments folder. You can learn more about Assignments and the Color By Setting in the Creating SAR Objects page on our training site. Might be worth looking into if you haven't already!
