Highlight Colors of the Equipment Grid
Understanding the Highlighted Colors of Equipment Records
The Equipment Grid currently uses five default colors to visually identify 'past due' (pink), 'calibration due soon' (yellow), 'calibration standard' (green), 'calibration failed on receipt' (red), and 'received for calibration' (gray). Colors can be customized.
Show or hide highlights by right-clicking for the context menu in the Equipment grid and toggling any of the five options in the 'Highlight' section.
Manage the default highlight colors by clicking the [Default Colors] button in the General tab of the Program Options dialog. Change the colors to ones that makes sense for your company, or click the [Reset] button to restore the default colors.
Highlight Past Due
Equipment records with a Next Cal date less than the current date are highlighted Pink. Records marked as Calibration / Test Standards (usually Green) are also marked as Pink when they are Past Due.
Equipment records not past due but “due soon” are highlighted Yellow. Due soon is defined by the Reminder Lead Days field in the Calibrations tab of the Options dialog.
Equipment marked as Calibration / Test Standard are highlighted Green unless they are also Past Due or soon to be Due Cal. Mark Equipment as a Standard by checking the 'Is Calibration / Test Standard' check box in the Calibrations tab of the Equipment dialog.
Highlight Received Out of Tolerance
If any of the past Calibrations of a given Equipment have an As Found status of Out of Tolerance (OOT), the record is highlighted red in the main Equipment grid.
Remove the Red highlight of an Equipment record by marking all of the Calibration Events with an 'As Found OOT' status as 'OOT Investigated'.
Received for Calibration
Equipment that has been received for calibration will have a gray highlight in the grid.
