Data Selection - Full Tutorial

Date:

Pronto Version:
6.0

Recognising that as the number of data streams recorded grows (can be almost 500 in some of our loggers), it can get hard to find the exact data you want, so we’ve enhanced the data selection list, with options to group data streams into folders (e.g. by type, units, etc.) and create favourites of your most used data stream combinations.

NOTE: This tutorial has also been divided up into 4 shorter separate tutorials. These tutorials contain a little more detail on each of the separate subjects.
