DataSight Version 3.4 Released
We continue to enhance DataSight with the release of Version 3.4. New features include the ability to embed attachments as HTML as well as attach multiple documents in emails automatically generated by DataSight Tasks, to search for Levels in the Level list panel, and to export your information in Grid Views such as Variables, Flags, and Level Construction for example.
HTML EMBEDDED EMAILS
Deliver your saved datasheets, reports and charts direct to email as embedded HTML. When HTML is selected in your Task configuration and content is embedded, you will no longer need to open an emailed attachment to read its contents. For datasheets and reports, the output format must be HTML. All available chart formats are able to be embedded.
When you email your documents using an automated task, you can now select more than one attachment to send with that email. For pre-existing Email Document tasks created in version 3.3 and below, the file list will be displayed with the previous selection ticked in the list. You can include additional documents if you wish.
A search functionality is now embedded at the top of the Level List Panel to help you quickly find specific Levels in your growing list. You can collapse or expand this search field as required.
You can also view the Processing History for ALL data relatable to a Level by right clicking Levels (Level 0) in your Level list then selecting History, Processing. The view may take some time to open depending upon the size of your database. Processing data in grid view is filterable.
ACTIVE PERSONS AND EQUIPMENT
You can now select whether Persons or Equipment are active. When inactive, these records will no longer display in drop-down menus for Import and MDE.
EXPORT GRID VIEWS
You can now open the following Grid Views in DataSight and export their contents to your preferred format. This includes:
- Conversion Tables
- Level Properties
You can choose to display the Equipment Serial Number and Person’s Organization Name in a datasheet. Simply right click on the column header of datasheet, select the column chooser and drag the field on to the main form.
When you save your datasheet your sorting order and column selection is now also kept with the Saved View.
A Processing History is now displayed for changes made to Security. In the Security window, click History to review changes to your DataSight users or groups.
You can now elect to change timestamps of raw data records with timestamps of 24:00 to 23:59:59. Upon import, ticking the checkbox for Midnight is End of Day ensures that data reading as 24 hours in the raw data file is recorded in the MSSQL database as 23:59:59 and is grouped within that day’s and hour’s filters. When the box is not checked, a 24:00 hour reading will, as per MSSQL convention, write to the database as 00:00:00 or 12:00:00 AM, and subsequently be grouped within the next day of data.
Check Enable Time Offset to automatically increment the datetime stamp by five seconds when replicate records are written to the MSSQL database. This feature will be useful when importing replicate laboratory analyses, which have the same level, timestamp and variable. The subtle change in datetime ensures both replicates for the same variable are preserved. This feature is only available during import and for data found within the confines of one singular data file.
Import process logging has now been implemented for Person, Equipment, Standard and Flag
Please check your import templates to ensure that the Date and Time Delimiters in Step 1 of the Import are precisely identified. Data validation is now strictly enforced and any change in date or time formatting from record to record within a raw data file will result in the partial transfer of your data to the database.
DataSight maps have been updated and now display on OpenStreetMap. At this point in time, the use of DataSight Maps still require access to the internet, but additional enhancements to security now mean that windows authenticated users can more readily download the map when their network settings permit. The implementation of OpenStreetMap is in preparation for future enhancements of the DataSight map display.
