Save and Share Reports

Posted on

The standard method of saving reports is to save to the MadgeTech 4 internal File Database:

  1. Open a dataset as a Graph, Data Table, or Statistics report
  2. Go to File – Save
  3. Select a Report folder or subfolder within the File Database as the save location

To save reports as individual files outside of the software, which can be shared, use the following method:

  1. Originating PC opens a dataset as a Graph, Data Table, or Statistics report
  2. Go to File – Save To – File to save in the MadgeTech File Format (.mtff/.mtffs)
  3. Save the file or send the file as an email attachment
  4. Viewing PC receives the file and saves to PC
  5. In the MadgeTech 4 software, go to File – Open
  6. To save a report, go to File – Save
  7. To save a report and a dataset (raw data) to File Database, go to File – Save To – File Database.  (Saving in this manner saves the original data previously downloaded on a different PC)

To share files in MadgeTech 4 Secure Software, all PC’s require a Secure Software license.  Please contact [email protected] to purchase additional software licenses.
