Selecting Topic Codes

Once a Topic Code is created and linked to a service, it will appear on that service's Topic Codes tab. Aptify offers the functionality to associate topic codes with any service; organizations most often associate them with the Persons, Employees, Organizations, Companies, Products, and e-Business services.

A Topic Codes tab has two sub-tabs for browsing through available topic codes and identifying selected topics: the Browse by Category and All Selected Topics tabs.

Follow these steps to assign one or more topic codes to a record:

See Notes for Administrators for important information concerning topic code selections.


  1. Open a record from a service that has associated topic codes and a Topic Codes tab.
    • A Topic Codes tab appears on the Persons, Employees, Organizations, Companies, and Products forms, by default. You can add a Topic Codes tab to other services using the Form Template Tab wizard. See Using the Form Template Tab Wizard for more information.

  2. Select the Topic Codes tab.

    • Select the check box next to each desired Topic Code.
    • Click the Check All button to select all of the Topic Codes that are currently displayed.
    • Click the Un-Check All button to clear the current selections.
    • If a Topic Code has a multiple choice list, select one of the values from the drop-down list.

  4. If the topic code is a top-level category that has sub-topics, click the hyperlink to see the related items. Select one or more of the sub-topics, as necessary.
    • If a topic code has no sub-topics or children it will not be displayed as a hyperlink.
