Revision 2.5.0 - Late April 2021

Inspection in Progress (OIE / Tech)

UT, IRIS, DPI, MPI – Header and Equipment

A change has been made to this section for the following inspection types:

  • UT
  • IRIS
  • DPI
  • MPI

In line with the Tablet app, Header and Equipment details are now required to be input prior to recording inspection results when using the web-based application. The user will be asked to confirm the Equipment details each time they access the inspection tab. The Header and Equipment details will not be displayed in subsequent screens in the workflow but will be added to the Inspection Reports once generated.

For any of these inspection types that are carried out on the tablet, once synced, the Header details will be displayed on the web but the Equipment tab will remain hidden from view.


Revision 2.4.0 - Mid April 2021

  • New Grids - Fixing columns. As per the previous release, we are continuing to roll out the new grid (tables) format, which is now available in Workpack Creation.
  • In all new grids we have added a function for the user to fix the position of columns so that they always appear on the screen even when you scroll to the right. Users can fix one or more columns to either the left or right side. Please note that this function is temporary so if you refresh the screen or close it and return to it, then these settings are not retained.
  • To Fix a column right-click the column heading, select ‘Fix’ then ‘To the left’ or ‘To the right’, as shown below:
  • Search Parameters - Another feature (that was already implemented but we forgot to highlight) was that users can specify certain search parameters in the free text section by clicking on the looking glass, as show below:
  • Workpack Creation (WPC) - We have also updated the Workpack Creation screens for the WPC role. As well as adding in the new grids for Item Selection and Technique Allocation sections, we have improved the interaction between the various sections.
  • Also, in the Information section, if the user attempts to leave the section without saving any unsaved data a warning will be displayed at the top of the screen.
