9.1.1 Major Feature

Added VCS Export 1st iteration, incorporating Vector Cloud Online Viewer and html configurable reports.

For an interactive example of the VectorPRo Online Viewer click here:   https://ahpublic.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/VectorPro/vcs/export/live/view.html

9.1.2 Benefit of VCS

VCS is the platform to allow the sharing of new operations that are not available within the UI of VectorPro.  VCS export expands on our Vector Cloud development.  In this iteration, VCS export allows the sharing of data from a single sample in VectorPro via VCS.  This feature introduces the online viewer and html report templates, and a single page report can be printed directly from the online viewer.  Because this is a VCS feature, customers wishing to benefit from it will have to have a VCS account. 

VCS Export is accessed from the VectorPro live screen by selecting a sample from the sample carousel at the top of the screen.

9.2 VectorPro Cloud Solutions Export Activate

VectorPro Cloud Solutions Export Activate

 
If the operator is not logged into their VCS account then they will be prompted to log in as described in the release notes for VectorPro 6.4.0.0.  If they are already logged into their VCS account then they will be prompted for a target email address to receive the shared data link.
 

9.3 Send export email

Send Export Email

 

VectorPro will send an email to the target address containing a link that will enable the recipient to view the sample data and ancillary information.

 

When the recipient clicks on the link, provided they have an available web browser installed, they will be shown the data using the Vector Cloud Online Viewer.  The UI is deliberately similar to VectorPro but can be accessed regardless of the platform used to view, so smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs can all be used to view VectorPro data.

9.4 VectorPro Cloud Solutions Online Viewer

Like VectorPro, the graph can be zoomed and panned using finger gestures on touch displays and the icons at the top of the display lead to additional information and functionality.

 

9.4.1 Graph Options

The user can choose to view the data using different x/y domains

 

9.4.2 Information

Displays additional information regarding the sample data

 

9.4.3 Operation timeline

Shows the user the timeline used to collect the data.

 

 

9.4.4 Test results

Shows the user the sample test results

 

9.4.5 Sample Report

 Allows the user to print a report and provides a number of options

 

One option to note is the QR code.

If the QR code is included then whoever has the printed report or pdf on screen can point their mobile device's camera at the QR code and be shown the sample data using the Vector Online Viewer.

 

9.4.6 Benefits

VCS export is the first iteration of a truly exciting feature development to bring simple and effective data sharing to VectorPro users.  By signing up for a free VCS account users are given the opportunity to share test data among their colleagues or customers / clients around the world with a few clicks..  The feature set for VCS is set to expand in forthcoming releases.
