The following steps describe how to enter a journey as move event. For more information on move events in general see this tutorial. On move events concerning artifacts, have a look at the letter tutorial.
These steps describe how to enter a journey as special case of a move event. To create a new move event following elements are involved in the procedure:
Actor: the person/persons that went on a journey
Event: the Move of the letter from one place to another
Place: start or end point of the journey
Type: used for classification, can be extended by users
If not all actors involved in the journey were entered into the database already, add them via a click on the respective tab in the menu. Here, click the + Person button to get to the form. As for all other forms, a name is required to save the data. Please note, that that only individuals entered as person can be linked to a move event later on. This is not possible for groups, as a move of one or more groups can not be mapped with the current version of CIDOC CRM.
If not all locations involved in the journey were entered into the database already, add them via a click on the respective tab in the menu. Here, click the + Place button to get to the form. As for all other forms, a name is required to save the data.
Creating the move event¶
The following steps will create a move event:
Click on the Event tab in the menu then use the + Move button
Fill out the form, for more information see the move event tutorial.
Please note: do not link a person in this form if the journey was taken willingly. Link here only people who have not traveled of their own free will - think, for example, of a prisoner transport or the translation of relics. To see how to link (voluntary) travelers correctly, see below.
Please also note: Use preceding event to document multiple parts of a trip. Unlike sub events, these can be put in chronological order. Sub events are there to capture events that happen at the same time (for more information see move event tutorial).
Click the Insert button to save the data or Insert and continue button to save and start to enter another move event
