Fast, easy, more functionalities...

As you see our web portal has changed substantially. It's not just the appearance, lots of things behind that you can't see have changed as well. This is CRIMS V 3.0.
The major improvement is the fully integration of the Image Viewing interface. With this new integrated interface you have lots of new functionalities that we expect you to love !

Here is a quick list of all the improvements we did in this image viewing interface:

  • Speed : watching your images is really fast comparing to the previous version.
  • You can use keyboard arrows to navigate through your plate.
  • Viewing options panel :
    • You can select within the browsing sequence which position you want to see when navigate in your plate (ie all positions, or just 1 and 3, or just 3).
    • Using sample side-to-side you can display several positions at the same time on your page.
    • If the current displayed inspection is both Visible and UV you can choose which type of images you want to see, or just both at the same time.
  • Score History panel display the score history for the current drop (users and inspections where there is a score).
  • Inspections panel give you the list of inspections with a direct link and also show the future schedule.
  • Summary Settings panel allow you to select which scores you want to see in your custom summary.

More functionalities will be added in the future.
