In ACTS, a Test is defined as a form that captures results from sampling activities with defined methods.  The results are then compared against emission thresholds.  The Test page stores general information and measurement data.  To access the Test page from the main menu, users may select the Operations module then Test.

The Test page is comprised of the following tabs:

Information This tab contains the general Test Information such as: Facility, Test Type, Test Status, Vendor, etc.
Data The Data tab contains Attributes that are specific to the Test page as defined by a company. The fields may be changed by an ACTS administrator.
Files This tab stores Files associated with Tests.

Entering Data

  1. The Test page will open on the Information tab.
  2. Update information by entering text, selecting from dialog boxes and dropdowns, checking and unchecking boxes, and entering dates into the appropriate fields.  Contact an ACTS administrator to update fields and dropdown items.  Note: All fields that require data are indicated by an asterisk (*).  Select the Save icon in the main menu at the top of the page before proceeding to step 2.  For data to appear as dropdown items, it must first be saved in ACTS.
  3. On the Files tab, users can add information by scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting the "Add a new row" icon (i.e., the icon shaped like a plus sign).  If data for multiple rows has been added, users may select multiple items by pressing and holding CTRL and selecting the items.  Users can delete a row by selecting the icon that looks like a trashcan, and they can insert a row by selecting the arrow icon.  For a visual list of the most common icons in ACTS, click here
