Trilogy has been working on TAPS Release 3.0 for many months and it is now ready for general release.
TAPS Release 3.0 contains a significant number of improvements and enhancements and a couple of optional new features. TAPS 3.0 will also be available in a desktop single user format using the Microsoft MSDE database as well as the full client/server Enterprise version.
The calendar facility has been improved to make visual ‘drop & drag’ modifications and refinements of your pre-schedules even easier.
TAPS 3.0 includes a new ‘workflow’ facility. This allows the user to navigate around the system using a graphical interface which can be configured by the user to reflect their own business processes.
TAPS Desktop is a single user version of the Planning & Scheduling Application. It run on the Microsoft MSDE database and is intended for consultants who require a lighter and more portable version of the software.
An improved Alignment Calendar has been provided allowing for displays by a wide range of different queries. These include by date ranges, by site, by customer and by analysis. Results can be grouped by site, location, purpose code or pre- schedule. Additional colour coding can graphically highlight missing or non-completed samples.
Having set up a pre-schedule for one location, you can select a group of other locations and replicate the pre-schedule. A choice is given on whether to align the collection dates of the clones.
The system will allow definition of multiple purpose codes for an analysis within the same pre-schedule.
Password encryption, password rollover based on a time limit and password history can be optionally provided.
