Note: You may need to perform free updates to your FieldLab and FieldLab Desktop in order to use this feature.
Available for FieldLab Desktop versions 1.10.0 and newer, and FieldLab v1.117 and newer.
Enter and save important information along with each Data Set by creating custom fields that you can edit directly on the FieldLab. For example: After you complete a test on the FieldLab, you can add the serial number of the device you tested, name of the technician who performed the work, work order number, etc.
Once saved, the information will be conveniently bundled alongside all the test data for future reference.
Create Custom Fields
Go to the "FieldLab Desktop" in the menu bar and select "Preferences".
Under the "Test Modes" heading, select "Edit" in Custom Data Fields.
Select "New" and add the Name of the Custom Data Field. Save after you finish entering all fields.
Assign Custom Fields to a Test Mode
In the Test Modes section, under the Test Modes main heading, create a new Test Mode, or edit an existing one.
On the Test Mode edit screen, the available fields will be listed.
Check off the fields you wish to include with this Test Mode.
Add the Test Mode to the FieldLab. If it has already been added, Sync it so that it has the latest version of the updated Test Mode.
Activate the Test Mode on the gauge and perform the test.
After the test is complete, view the Data Set containing the data from the test you just performed. You can view the custom fields you assigned to the Test Mode here. In this example the custom field label, Serial Number, is visible with a blank placeholder for the data to be entered. To add info to the custom data field, select Edit.
