No saved measurements

Hello, I have my Multispec connected via USB to a windows 10 laptop (I can't get the Bluetooth to work, but that is another issue). The instrument is on and connected. I am trying to contribute/ add more data to a new project that already has a few measurements (it is just a trial). I can click on the project and take measurements, but when I try to submit the measurements by hitting "save" once the measurement is successfully taken (there is a note that the proton motive force is too low, but seeing as these are tests, I am not worried about it), the application takes me back to the "take measurement" screen. When I click "latest", the application tells me "no measurement saved". I can't seem to find the data anywhere; not in the project, not in my notebook, and not when I sync/ask for the latest measurements. A

Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? It feels like I am missing something pretty simple. I was able to collect data for this test project the day I created the project ("preliminary testing via USB connection"). Let me know if you guys think of anything.

Regards, Naomi

Naomi,

I can see your data on the project (https://www.photosynq.org/projects/preliminary-testing-via-usb-connection/explore). When I filter by Time and Date I can see that you took 9 measurements today.

When contributing data with the chrome desktop app, assuming you are connected to the internet, the data will be uploaded to the PhotosynQ website as soon as you click save. Further, once you have saved the measurement, the app will take you back to the contribute data page so that you can continue to collect data. We do not save measurements locally on the chrome app, unless you are using the Notebook, but rather they get submitted to the website, where they can be viewed.

I am not sure why the measurements were not showing up in the latest measurement tab, I will look into that.

Hi Dan, Thank you for the speedy reply, letting me know where I can see my data and how the application flows when data collecting! Do you have a recommendation for when it is more appropriate to use the "notebook" as opposed to the "project" function?

Naomi,

If you are going to be collecting multiple measurements on specific plant populations, using PhotosynQ projects is a better option than using the notebook. In part because the PhotosynQ data viewer allows you to filter and create separate series to easily compare your data.
