Dear Team

Many thanks for the articles you provided on the forum, they really helped alot on understanding what the instrument does. However, I have realised that my data samples are captured as ID numbers on the spreadsheet. Is it possible to edit this from words of my choosing so I will easily identify my data sets. Also,the instrument takes over 15 seconds to record a single measurement. I am not sure whether its the app on my tablet or my internet speed. Please help. Regards, Clarence

Also, to address the 15+ seconds for the measurement, can you estimate how long you think it is actually taking? I bet 45 seconds to maybe a minute? This is usually caused when a user clamps a leaf first, then hits measure on their app. If you hit measure, the open the device, then clamp, this should remedy your issue. Hope this helps, get back to us if problems persist

Yes you are right it takes me a minute or more if I choose to discard the measurement. I will certainly follow your approach.

We have a downloadable in the tutorials I think you would find helpful, it's all about project questions, what to think about when you are making them, and how they will affect your analysis later on.

The ID number that comes with your data point is a way for us to handle and organize all the incoming data from around the world. Maybe, if you wanted an easier way to look through your data in the project viewer, you could add some more answers to your Multiple Choice questions. Right now, you only have one answer for each, which means all your data will all be lumped together. Maybe adding additional answers, or new questions for variety of sugar cane, or different treatments. This way when you go to look at your data next time, you can see how all the different varieties compare.
