Knowing the environment with the sample database

When installing the program (FULL Installation), a database of examples including the Firebird database engine was installed on your local computer or PC, which will allow you to quickly start navigating the program and familiarize yourself with it.

Access to this database of examples is immediate after the installation and activation of your license and since it is located on your local computer, you do not need to know the program or programs to start by creating a new database, making connections to a database on the network, etc.

On this database you can make changes, add equipment, add spare parts, etc. etc. thus facilitating learning.

Once you decide to start the implementation you should create a new database where you will start to load your information, or, if you are already a user of a previous version, you can migrate your information to version 10.

In the case of having contracted the service MPhosting, the sample database is preloaded on the server that the MPsoftware team prepared for you.

When running any of the MP version 10, Spare Parts Inventory or Tool Control programs; select the option "Start using a database of samples".

Watch video: Main menu and submenu

Once the database is selected, the Main Menu is presented where the user will select the module that they want to enter.

Each module presents in the upper left part a Submenu of actions that can be applied to the selected elements in the information grid. Similarly, in the upper left corner is the Menu button to return to the Main Menu.

Toolbar and grid info

Each module presents a toolbar with its own functions that allow the edition, printing, import and export of the content of said module; as well as the display options of the grid info.

Information panel

See video: Information panel

The information panel allows us to consult more information related to the selected record of the mesh, whether it is an equipment, a spare part, a work order, a location, a maintenance activity, etc.

Click on the Information Panel button to show or hide the panel.

Sort mesh information

See video: Information panel

The Sort function allows the user to sort the content of the mesh columns alphanumerically.

A simple click on the column heading sorts it in ascending order.

A second click on the column heading sorts in descending order.

Using the "Shift" key, it is possible to sort the information by multiple columns simultaneously.

Group the mesh information

Watch video: Group information meshes

The Group function allows grouping the content of the information grid, giving great flexibility to organize the information that the user sees on the screen.

Filter mesh information

Watch video: Filter information meshes

The Filter function allows you to quickly locate one or more records that meet a filter condition set by the user.

Show, hide, move or adjust columns

Watch video: Show, hide and move columns

The MP allows the user to set the columns or fields that they want to show in the grid info, as well as move and adjust the columns in a personalized way. The option to show / hide columns is available only in some catalogs, such as the equipment catalog.

Multiple selection of records

The MP allows the user to select multiple records to work with them by applying one of the actions available in the submenu of the module they are in. Or, using the tools enabled on the toolbar.

The tools on the bar and the actions in the submenus vary depending on the module in which you are working (Equipment, Locations, Work orders, etc.).

Tools and configuration options

In the options of the button "tools and configuration options" we will find utilities that allow you to manage your reports, manage connections with your inventory databases and control tools, manage external data sources, consult important information about the program and the license of the same, etc ..

From here you can also customize your program, for that you must select Configuration options in the drop-down menu.

Shortcuts

The MP has shortcuts that provide us with a quick way to perform certain Tasks, for example, adding equipment or locations, recording measurements or readings, updating work orders, etc. These shortcuts are available all the time from any module and can be executed by clicking the mouse or using the F2 to F9 keys (shortcut keys).

Help

The PM is fully documented in this Learning Center or Help.

When you are faced with a question during the operation of the PM, from the specific place of the program where you are, you can access the help and it will take you directly to the corresponding topic with literature and videos.

The help also has a quick guide to start the implementation, as well as a smart search to easily find any topic.

The new help of version 10 constitutes without a doubt the easiest and most practical way to learn how to use the program or to solve specific doubts in a self-taught way.

You can access the Learning Center from virtually anywhere in the program.

Application picker

To make it easier for you to access the MP programs installed on your computer, we have integrated an application selector that allows you to quickly find and run the applications of the MP suite version 10.

It is possible that when you run the Parts Inventory or Tool Control programs from the MP application launcher, they may connect to the inventory or tools database related to the database that is in use in the MP.
