Important Information

RoundsLogging has been designed to work both Online and Offline. However, there are restrictions to Offline Uses.

While Online:
  • Routes can be downloaded to the Wireless Device. After a Route has been downloaded, that Route restricts any other users from accessing that route.
  • Route Points will be saved to the server once "Save" has been clicked.
  • "End Route" will save and upload the Route back to the server, allowing other users to select that Route.

While Offline:
  • Routes can not be downloaded.
  • Only one route can be opened during Offline Status.
  • User must have the Route opened before going Offline or the user will not be able to access the Route.
  • Measurements can be added, but not saved to the server.
  • Route Points will be saved to the Device's "Cache" until the Device is back Online. Once a connection is found by the Device, the "Stored Data" will be automatically uploaded.
  • User can not navigate away from the browser or all information will be lost.
    Note Users will be given two pop up warning messages that all data saved to the device will be lost before leaving the Route Measurement Entry pages.

Building a Route:

In the Tango Webservices, you can now add a route from any level of the tree.

Click the Menu Options next to the desired level.
Note By choosing a unit level, the route editor will only allow users to select points under that unit. Choosing a function level will only allow users to select points under that function. This will reduce load times and make it easier to filter out unwanted points.
