Are Freelance tags automatically populated in an 800 xA system?

The Freelance Connect generates Faceplates for all standard function blocks in the project. These Faceplates in 800xA look very much like the new Version 8 Faceplates in DigiVis. You can even run DigiVis in parallel to 800xA Operation. So may be in the local control room you go with DigiVis and in the central control room you have several Freelance projects (islands) on 800xA Operations, as a common Operator Inteface.
If you are using mostly standard function block, and want to have full controll in 800xA, than Freelance connect license is the best option,
however if you would like to have some overview screens and just a few essential operator actions from 800xA than PLC connect might be a better option due to licensing costs.
