> Top group 2012 = 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, WINTER
Your usage of "Top group" is strange. Top groups should only be used for independent groups of logbooks, more like you were running one dedicated sever fore
a group of logbooks. Further, you defined logbooks (2008, 2009, ...) which do not exist in your config. Why don't you just remove the "Top group" line from your
config? If you want to group different logbooks, just use the "group" command as written in the docs.
Does anyone have a success story with kerberos on windows?
Can ELog support different languages based on the logged on user?
I've been asked to export one of our logbooks to xls or csv. Doable?
Export to: CSV ("," separated) CSV (";" separated) XML Raw
I often use the XML Format, but CSV is fine if you just want to import the entries to some spreadsheet program.
I was shocked to find out that this feature has not yet made it into the documentation?!? But it is that simple to use that there is not much to document.
There is even an "Import" command, to reimport entries from a file. But this is tricky to use: if you have fields of type date or datetime, then you have to convert those fields in the proper format.
As for the computer time switching, I am aware of the issues, it's a stand-alone linux box, I've found elog to be surprisingly tolerant, everything's backed up. The introduction of a 'When' attribute had better be on new logbooks or introduced at end of year (esp during quiet time) so that existing books don't fail to find what I'm looking for in searches.
Yes, adding a new attribute in a logbook is not straight forward.
But it is doable: that is one of the things that I write SED scripts for. You just need to add the attribute in all old entries, and in this specific case you can use the entry time to initialise the "when" attribute.
Of course I would only do that on a copy of my data and run a separate elogd server on that data to see if anything is screwed up :-)
Here's the global section and the logbook section for one of the logbooks affected. Of note, the 'demo' logbook works
fine and does not have this issue.
