Status Change Dialog

Change Status of Multiple Equipment Quickly

Change the status of multiple pieces of equipment quickly and accurately in Calibration Control (our Calibration Management Software).  For instance, when receiving several pieces of equipment for calibration (or any other status), change the status of each tool with a single barcode scan after setting the "Change to What Status?" field.

Fields Changed by Status Dialog

The Status dialog (a) updates the status in the Equipment record and (b) saves a note in the Equipment record describing the status change.  Additionally, if the status changed to is "Received for Calibration Status" (defined in the Calibrations tab of the Options dialog), the Received (for Calibration) date in the Equipment record is also set to the current date.  If the status changed from is "Received for Calibration Status", the Received date is cleared.

Status Change in Ribbon

Open the Status dialog from the Status Change option.

Using the Status Change Dialog

Select the status the Equipment will be changed to using the “Change to What Status?” field.  If entering the Equipment ID manually, uncheck the "Use Barcode Scanner for Data Entry" box and enter the Equipment ID and click [Submit].  When done, click [Finished].

If using a barcode scanner, ensure the "Use Barcode Scanner for Data Entry" box is checked and scan the barcode on the product label previously printed from Calibration Control.  There is no need to click the [Submit] button when using a barcode scanner.  Repeat the equipment scan (or data entry) with as many pieces of equipment that require the new status.
