In RSLog, test hole data is organized into separate Projects. The Project details include the location, client name, coordinate system, units and other settings of your project. Watch the tutorial video and explore further details in the article below.

To access this page:

  1. Go to the left-hand navigation menu and select Projects List.

    The page should appear as follows:

    List of projects in RSLog
    List of projects in RSLog

    On this page you can search and find your previous projects, create a new project, and edit/delete a project. For a general guide on how to use tables in RSLog, see the Working with Tables help page. By hovering on a project in this table, in addition to editing and deleting a project, a user can:

    • View a summary of the project by clicking on the eye icon at the right end of the row.
    • Open that project and see the list of test holes by clicking on the checkmark icon on the row.
    • View the location of the project on the map by clicking on the View Location menu (click the Three dots icon button to open the menu).
    • Duplicate the project by clicking on Duplicate menu (click the Three dots icon button to open the menu).

    Assigning Users

    In order to determine which users can access which project:

    1. From the list of projects hover on the row for the subject project.
    2. Click on the Dropdown Button
      Dropdown Button
      button and select Assign Users menu (see the above screenshot).
    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.

    Creating a Project

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

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

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

    Project Status

    The status of a project changes as the project progresses. The list of project statuses can be edited on Settings page > Data Entry tab > Status Options tab.

    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 Site Location textbox 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.

    Coordinates Reference System (CRS)

    Please read detailed discussion of coordinates in this article. We recommend that you specify your project and boreholes location either using Geographic, Projected, or UTM coordinates system; This allows RSLog to place the test holes on the map. 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 Report 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.

    Additional Settings

    Go to Additional Settings tab to access more data entry fields for your project. In this section you can also enter values for project Extra Tags.

    Extra Tags are additional properties that you can assign to a project. User can edit the list of Extra Tags from Settings page > Data Entry tab > Extra Tags tab.

    Opening a Project

    Multiple projects are saved in your RSLog account. If you wish to edit the test hole data for a project, you will need to first open the project; this will set that project as your Active Project. 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, editing or generating reports:

    1. Select Projects List in the navigation panel to open the Projects page.
    2. Hover on your desired project from the list and click on the button at the end of that row. This will select this project as your 'Active Project' and you will have access to its test holes 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 a Project

    To edit the details of a project:

    1. Hover on the row for the desired project and click the Edit button at the right end of that row.
    2. A dialog will appear. Edit the necessary fields.
    3. Click Save.

    Duplicating a Project

    In order to duplicate a project (including its boreholes), hover on the project on the projects list and click the More Options, then select Duplicate from the menu. The Title of the duplicated project will use the title of the source project and add " - copy" to the end.

    Transferring a Project

    This feature is used for transferring project(s) data between two RSLog accounts (e.g. from a consultant to their client). A list of all project transfers are shown in Transferred tab. Please see this article for details.

    Archiving a Project

    You can archive the projects that are no longer active; This allows you to focus on ongoing current projects that you are actively working on their data entry and report generation. There are two options for archiving a project:

    • Option 1) hover on the project from the list and click on the button, then select Archive from the menu.
    • Option 2) select the checkbox beside the project from the list and click on the Archive button from the top toolbar.
    Archiving a project will change its Project Status to Archived. This moves the project to the Archived tab.

    To un-archive a project:

    1. On Projects page click on Archived tab to view the list of archived projects.
    2. Hover on the row for the desired project and click the button at the right end of that row, and select Un-archive from the menu.
    3. This will set the Project Status back to Active.
