In RSLog, test hole data is organized into separate Projects. The Project details define the location and settings of your project.

To access this page:

Go to the left-hand navigation menu and select Data Entry > Projects.

The page should appear as follows:

Data Entry Projects Page
Data Entry: Projects Page

From this page you can create and edit projects, as well as load the project you wish to work on.

Assigning Users to a Project

In order to determine which users can access which project:

  1. From the list of projects select the checkbox for the subject project.
  2. Click on the Assign User button from the table toolbar.
  3. A dialog appears, with a list of all users in your RSLog account. Select which users should have access to this project.
  4. Click Save to close the dialog.

The users who are excluded in the User Assignment dialog, will not be able to see the subject project in their list of projects.

Create a New Project

Before you can begin entering test hole data, you must first create a New Project.

  1. Select Projects in the navigation panel to open the Project page with a list of all projects.
  2. Click + button on the top toolbar. A dialog will appear.
  3. Enter project details (title, client name, site location, etc.)
    Note: Client names can be entered manually or selected from the drop-down list of your Contacts.
  4. Click Save to create the project.

After saving you will be taken to the list of test holes. See the Test Holes help page for more information.

Site Location

When entering your Project Details, you will be asked to enter a Site Location. The Site Location can be a civic address or geographic coordinates. If an address is not available, you can click on the ‘map icon’ next to the address and set your project location on the map by following the below steps:

  1. Click on the Map icon.
  2. Use your mouse to drag the pin to a new location on the map (the specific location does not matter for this example).
  3. Click on the Polygon/Polyline tools to draw a polygon/polyline to represent the site layout or alignment. This will be used later for preparation of site location figure, which is typically part of the engineering reports.
  4. Double click on the last point on the map to complete the polygon/polyline.
  5. Click Save to close the dialog.
  6. Once the site location is specified on the map, the project coordinates will be automatically added to the form.

Coordinate System

Please read details discussion about coordinates in this article. We recommend that you set the project’s coordinate system to Geographic; This allows you to insert the test hole locations on the map, as described in the Site Location section above. By selecting a location on the map, the geographic (Latitude/Longitude) location is automatically added to the form.

If Local coordinate system is selected, map features will be unavailable for the project.

Unit System

The Unit System determines the unit system that will be used for all Test Hole and Lab Test data. Users can select:

  • Imperial: depth unit is "ft"
  • Metric (East Asia): depth unit is "m"
  • Metric (US): depth unit is "m"

The main implication of selecting a Unit System is the depth unit used in RSLog user interface and borehole log. For Imperial and Metric unit systems, "ft" and "m" will be used as the depth unit, respectively.

QR Web Link

A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode system that opens a web page when scanned by the camera of your cell phone or tablet. This could be your company website, a link to your geotechnical report, a link to a ftp website to allow downloading files, etc.

In RSLog, you can insert a QR code on the header or footer of your report, via the Template Editor feature.

For the QR Web Link field, you will need to specify a suitable URL prefix when entering the QR web link:

  • http:// most of the web addresses start with this prefix. (Note: If you don't enter any prefix for your web link, this is added by default.)
  • https:// for secure websites.
  • ftp:// when you would like to redirect user to a page to download files.
  • mailto: links to an email address

Opening an Existing Project (i.e. Active Project)

If you have multiple projects saved in your RSLog account and wish to edit Test Hole data for a project, you will need to first open the project. Each user can only open one project at a time. If you wish to switch to another project, you will need to go to the Projects page and open another project.

To open a Project for data entry or reporting:

  1. Select Projects in the navigation panel to open the Projects page.
  2. Click on the Open Project button next to the project you wish to open. This will select this project as the 'Active Project' and you will have access to its data.
  3. A message will be shown asking if you would like to open the list of test holes for this project. Click Yes to be redirected to the Test Holes page.

Editing an Existing Project

To edit the Project Details of an existing project:

  1. Double-click on the Project title in the table.
  2. A dialog will appear. Edit the necessary fields.
  3. Click Save.
