Options - Calibration

Within the Option dialog's Advanced tab, modify the Calibration settings to fit your company's standards within Calibration Control (our Calibration Management Software).

Program Options - Calibrations
  • Status on Calibration Pass:  Select a status that will be applied to an Equipment record when a new Calibration event has Passed.
  • Status on Calibration Fail:  Select a status that will be applied to an Equipment record when a new Calibration event has Failed.
  • Reminder Lead Days:  The number of days that determine which equipment is "soon due" and will appear in the Due Cal report and when browsing equipment that is due for calibration.
  • Received for Calibration Status:  When using the Status Change dialog, if the selected status is set, three changes are made to the related Equipment dialog: (a) the Status is changed to the selected status, (b) the Received field is set to TODAY, and (c) a note record is created describing the event.
  • Certificate Reference Method:  When printing a Calibration Certificate, if a Standard is linked to the calibration's measurement groups, the selected value determines which Certificate number value will appear.
    • Use Equipment Only: Pulls the certificate value from the Equipment record's Certificate field (under the Calibration tab). If the field remains blank in an Standard Equipment record and the Standard gets linked in a Calibration Measurement Group, the Standard's cert number on a certificate will remain blank.
    • Use Calibration Only: Uses the last Calibration Event's Certificate Number and ignores anything populating the Equipment record's Certificate field. That way, users could choose to re-utilize the Equipment Certificate field if they want.
    • Use Equipment When Not Null: Uses the last Calibration's Certificate Number UNLESS there is a number populating in the Equipment's Certificate field. In that case, the Equipment record's Certificate Field overrides.
  • Options Calibration Certificate Number Reference Method
  • Max Measure Groups to Submit at Once:  The maximum number of measurement groups you can submit at once. By default, the value is 0 which indicates there is no max.
  • Second Pause between MG Submit:  The number of seconds to pause between each measurement group being submitted. By default, the value is 0 which indicates there is no pause between submitting measurement groups.
  • Manually Set Due Dates in Equipment Dialog:  Normally, the Calibration Due (Next Cal) is automatically calculated based on the Last Calibration and the Calibration Frequency.  Therefore, checking this option for manual set will disable the automatic calculation.
  • Ask to Print OOT Worksheet When Received OOT:  With this option checked, the User who saves a Calibration Event with the Received Out-Of-Tolerance (OOT) condition will be asked if the OOT Worksheet should be printed.  (Works with the next option below.)
  • Null Cal Received Date on Successful Cal:  (Usually used in conjunction with the above Received for Calibration Status feature) With this option checked, when a new Calibration is saved with a 'Passed' Status then the Received [for Calibration] field in the Equipment record is automatically nulled.
  • Use Last Calibration as Template if No Template Linked:  With this option checked, creating a new Calibration Event uses the most recent Calibration Event as the Measurement Template if no Template is otherwise linked for that Equipment.
  • Prevent Entry of Future Date for Calibration Dates:  Prevent the manual entry of a calibration due date in the future.
  • Work Days:  Select which days of the week are considered work days for calibrations.
