Introduction
The Administration section of Codeit offers a variety of settings and options.
This page provides a summary of these settings and a description of what each setting does.

Project Settings

Setting Description
NameThe text name used to refer to a project.
Project names must be unique within a company.
Description (Optional)Can be used to store a description to help identify a project or provide clarification about the project purpose.
Project Code (Optional)The Project Code can be used to store a custom identifier for a project.
Is Test ProjectUsed to flag whether a project is purely for testing purposes. Test projects are do not count towards a companies Codeit quota.



Variable Settings

SettingDescription
Name
The text name used to refer to a variable within a project.
Variable names must be unique within a project.
Description
Provides a descriptive label for variables.
This can be used to explain the purpose of a variable in cases where the name alone is not revealing.
For example, in the case of a survey question, the Description may be used to hold the question text for the variable.
CodeframeThe name of a codeframe attached to a variable
Enforce Maximum CodesSpecifies whether there is a restriction on the number of codes that can be applied to this variable
Note: this setting only applies if a codeframe is attached to the variable.
Maximum Codes AllowedSpecifies the maximum number of codes that can be applied to this variable.
Note: this setting only applies if the "Enforce Maximum Codes" setting is switched on.
Show in Project SelectorDetermine whether this variable can be shown on the Codeit "Select Project" page
Include in ExportDetermines whether a variable will be included in any exports created by the "Export Data" page in Codeit
Multicode Export Type
Determines whether multicoded values for a variable will be exported in a single field (concatenated) or in one field per code (expanded)
Multicode Export Delimiter
Determines what delimiter should be used when concatenating multicoded values for a variable.
Note: This setting only applies when the Multicode Export Type is set to "Concatenated"
Export FormatDetermines whether coded values for this variable will be exported as code values or code labels 
Export as Fixed WidthSpecifies whether values for this variable are exported as fixed width data
Variable WidthSpecifies a fixed width for variable values.
Note: This setting only applies when the "Export as Fixed Width" setting is switched on.


Wave Settings

SettingDescription
Wave NameThe text name used to refer to a wave within a project.
Wave names must be unique within each project.
Scheduled Start DateThe date when coding is due to start for a wave.
This setting is used primarily for information and filtering purposes in the Codeit project summary landing page.
Scheduled End DateThe date when coding is due to end for a wave.
This setting is used primarily for information and filtering purposes in the Codeit project summary landing page.
Allow ImportsThis setting specifies whether data can be imported into the wave.
Sometimes it can be useful to explicitly disable imports to prevent imports into waves that are complete or should not have new records added.
The default for this setting is "Yes" (i.e. imports are allowed)
Attempting to import data into a wave where imports are disallowed, will result in an error during the import process.
Allow OverwritesThis setting specifies whether existing data can be overwritten during the import process.
The default for this setting is "No" (i.e. data cannot be overwritten)
Attempting to overwrite data when overwrite is disallowed, will result in an error during the import process.
For more information on this subject, see here.
Wave StatusThis setting is used to denote the current status of a wave in the coding lifecycle.
This setting restricts actions (e.g. import, coding, verify) according to the lifestage of the wave.
For more information on this subject, see here.


Task Settings

SettingDescription
Task Name
The text name used to refer to a task within a project.
Task names must be unique within each project.
SourcesA list of source variables to use as input variables in a Task
Context Data
A list of context variables to display when coding a Task
Targets
A list of target variables to apply codes to when coding a Task
Note: only variables with Codeframes attached can be selected as Targets
