Editing can be done by viewing the individual item or by editing in a list view. This will describe editing an individual item.

Jama displays all items in a read only format by default.

1.From the target item's detail, double-click on the appropriate field or hover over it and select the pencil icon at the top left of the field (alternatively, you can select the Edit Item button available in the top right side of the panel).

Note: If you do not see the pencil or the Edit Item button you do not have write permissions and will need to have your permissions or license upgraded by your Administrator.

2.Jama will open a new window with all of the item's fields editable.

Note: If any of the fields are not editable then the Administrator configured the field to be read only. This is common for Jama controlled fields such as "Modified By" or "Created Date".

3.Select Save to intermittently save the updates but keep the editing window open.
4.Once you are done editing, select Save and done. To save and add another item of the same type, select the arrow on middle button and select Save and add another. To save and notify other Jama users, select the arrow on the middle button and select Save and notify.
5.If you selected Save and notify, Jama will prompt you for comments and provide you with a list of groups and users to notify about the update. Users who are subscribed to the item will appear in the Notify window. The X icon removes users from the notify list. Users who are already subscribed cannot be unsubscribed from this view.
6.If you'd like to subscribe the user or group for future updates to this item, select the envelope icon.

Note: Turning off the Notify option will skip the Comment and Notify window for future edits during this session.


7.Select Commit to complete the edit and create a new version.
