New Feature/Enhancements to the AllTrak software
Trimble® Quick Link Software Interface
This release of the Trimble AllTrak software includes an interface with Trimble Quick Link, a licensing and communication software application. Benefits of this software application:
Virtual Computer Users
If you have Trimble AllTrak installed on a virtual machine, you no longer have to contact technical support to renew your licenses every 90 days.
License Administration Control
Using the Trimble® Quick Link Management Studio, you can view license availability, update licensing, and obtain new licensing.
In the event you need to move Trimble AllTrak from one server to another, you can easily accomplish this without contacting technical support for licensing issues.
Licenses can be shared between multiple offices; however, the Trimble® Quick Link Hub must be installed at all locations.
Location Grid Settings
This release allows you to customize a grid and then apply those settings to all locations. This eliminates the need to customize the grid at every location. You can create the settings you want and then simply go to Tools > Apply Grid Customizations to ALL Locations. All locations will inherit the customization performed.
Customize Asset Grid Options
The Customize Asset Grid option from the shortcut (right-click) menu now includes all available fields. The Display Settings option in the Settings menu is now removed as a result.
Reset Grid Customization option
A Reset Grid Customization option now available under the Tools menu, so you can restore the grid layout to the factory defaults.
A new main display grid now significantly increases the speed performance of the software when working with large data sets.
To improve the performance of the display grid for large databases, there is now a setting to optimize the handling of large databases. To set this option, go to Personal Settings and select the Use Large Database Optimization checkbox. When you select this option, the entire database does not load at start-up. This results in faster processing times for day-to-day tasks. When using this setting, Trimble recommends that you use the search capabilities and custom views to achieve the best performance from the system.
Auto Refresh Alerts
To increase the speed performance of Trimble AllTrak, you can now turn off automatic refresh of alerts. This will increase the speed performance of the software if you are working with a large number of assets. To turn off alerts, open Personal Settings and clear the Auto Refresh Alerts checkbox. When this option is disabled, alerts will update only when the software starts up.
Pre-Transfer Validation options
You can now disable Pre-Transfer Validation, which increases the speed performance if you are transferring a large number of assets in a single transaction. To disable the pre-transfer validation, go to Personal Settings and clear the Perform Pre-Transfer Validation checkbox.
If you disable the automatic pre-transfer validation, transfers can validated manually in the transfer screens by clicking the Tools menu and selecting Validate Transfer.
This version of the software runs version 12 of the Sybase® SQL Anywhere® database.
Enhancements to the AllTrak Mobile software
General speed enhancements
General software updates now noticeably increases the speed performance of the AllTrak Mobile software.
Disable Validation Reports
A Disable Validation Reports option is now available in the Options screen. When selected, the validation is performed and documented in the database, however a report is not sent to the mobile device.
