Introduction


The Additional Settings setting in the Configuration Menu allows configuring the site data export to your exact requirements. Each option is explained in detail below


Copy Instrument Photos? (Server -> Site)

Ticking this box will copy all instrument photos from the server to the local computer, placing photos in the default directory of C:/ProCal/Instrument Photos. ProSite intelligently looks through each photo that is found and compares the file modified dates of both files and will only copy a file if the file on the server is newer. If this option is ticked the Server Instrument Photos Path field must be filled and accessible at the time of exporting data to the site computer


Copy Procedures? (Server -> Site)

Ticking this box will copy all procedures from the server (%ServerProCalLocation%/Procedures) as well as all datasheets, prompts etc that are linked to the procedures to the local computers default location of C:/ProCal/Procedures. Prosite intelligently looks for each file and compares the file modified dates to ensure only files that have been updated on the server are copied to reduce the amount of time required to copy data


Copy Crystal Reports? (Server -> Site)

Ticking this box will copy all crystal report files from the server (%ServerProCalLocaltion%/Reports_SQL) to the local computers default location of C:/ProCal/Reports_SQL. This function uses the windows copy to display a progress bar


Copy Traceable Instruments? (Server -> Site)

Ticking this box will copy all instruments from the Server traceable instrument list from location 10 upwards and replace any existing items in the local computer with information from the server. The Instrument location is switched from 'Server' to 'Local' during the copy so that the local laptop has full access to information.


Copy Contacts Database? (Server -> Site)

Ticking this box will copy the entire contacts database to the local computer in case you visit a new customer that does not have any instruments in the server database or if you wish to view information for customers while on site


Copy Text Lists (Descriptions, Manufacturers etc)? (Server ->) Site

Ticking this box copies all pre-populated lists from the server to the site computer. This includes information such as the Job Comments, Site Descriptions, Instrument Descriptions etc


Update previous results? (Site -> Server)

Ticking this box will make ProSite update OLD results data on the server when returning data from Site. This covers situations where certificates may be re-called on site and adjustments made that need to be synchronised back to the main database. Ticking this box slows down the re-import process significantly and is not recommended when operating over a VPN.


Server File Paths :


Server Instrument Photos Path : This should be the location that the main computers look to for instrument photos that appear on job sheets and in ProCal. This path should be set to either a mapped drive or the IP Address and folder of the Directory on the server


Serer ProCal Folder : This is the location that the main computers look to for Crystal Reports, Procedures etc. This field must be correct for Procedures, Crystal Reports etc to copy to the site laptop successfully
