This section describes the import-from-file functionality. It is important to ensure this is done in an efficient order:
- Ensure all headwear IDs are imported first, such that they are available for auto-assignment when importing operators
- Ensure all crews are created (CONFIG > CREWS > “+ NEW CREW”), such that they are available for auto-assignment when importing operators
- Ensure all operators are imported, such that they exist in the system when importing their fatigue data.
Data Import from Offline Systems Section here describing process for data import.
NOTE: Before importing fatigue logs make sure all headwear and all operators are imported.
The imported fatigue data and alarms can be viewed by navigating to the reports.
NOTE: The imported data will be available in reports once the Snapshot has run. This happens on an hourly schedule, or when a user navigates to REPORTS > “On-Demand” > “SmartCap Snapshot” > “SHOW REPORT”.
All file import features have the option to be run in ‘Safe Mode’. In ‘Safe Mode’ all data is processed as per normal, except the changes will not be submitted to the Fatigue Manager database.
Once data is imported it cannot be undone. This makes ‘Safe Mode’ particularly useful when checking if the steps listed above have been skipped, meaning that a substantial amount of manual assignment and configuration would be needed. As such, ‘Safe Mode’ allows you to identify any major issues prior to the permanent data import.
NOTE: using ‘Safe Mode’ will make the data import process slower, however provides the above benefits.
