What the Heck is ACTIVE VIEW??????(Answer to a “Ask A Guru” question)
Active View is another visualization of the data that is on a Sample Centric Report. These are only availible today on samples that display chromatograms for compounds and contain grouped sample information.
Sucha as the High Density Reports, in the standard reports section of Report View.
When using Report View we generate a temporary view of the report that would be produced by the system. This view is only for the supplied Standard reports delivered with TF and is not available with Custom Reports, today. (Hint be looking to the future.) 😉
But when the report is generated in preview mode, and it has an ActiveView partner, the Active View tab will appear next to it.
In the Active View tab, you will see a grid of data that corresponds with data on the Report and the same Detailed Editing elements in Data Review, with the same functionality.
When data is changed in Active View it is just like editing in Data Review and results are updated. When this happens and indicator appears to let you know new results are availible for the report. Once clisked the Report is updated. The information is saved. In this manner you can use Report View as your data editor and see exactly what you are giving your clients in real time. You can at this point choose to generate the report, or make all your edits and then generate the reports in a batch process.
