Finding PAT Tested Appliances Globally

Over the years users have requested a feature to find a particular appliance that might exist in any one of their data files. Currently you have to open up each SimplyPats data file and do a search using the find function, this is obviously very time consuming.

Where testing is done in house by larger organisations, their is often a requirement to produce lists of appliances for management. We had a large organisation that wanted a list of all their kettles across multiple sites, we dont know why but thats what they wanted.

Also there have been occurences where users have tried to find a particular appliance by its appliance id. For example where the appliance has been moved between sites or companies or it has been stolen.

We have added a new screen under the Tools menu in SimplyPats 6 to find appliances globally. This screen will search through all of your SimplyPats data files and find any appliances that match or contain an appliance id or description. You can further refine the search by selecting a date range to search between.

The list displayed can then be printed or as everything in SimplyPats exported in various different formats (spread sheet etc).

This new feature will be in the next Simplypats free ugrade 6.0.7.
