Web edition updated with new requirements

The web edition has been updated several times over the last week with improvements to handle the new requirements.

Unfortunately with the increased number of photos and now also videos, I’m going to have to increase the price for the first time in 5 years. Due to covid-19 I will delay this until September 1st. From then, the prices will be increased by $5 per month for both the basic and standard plans.

Now supports video files

You can now also upload and attach videos to your inspections. I recommend lowering the quality of your videos to 720p so that you aren’t recording and uploading Full HD or 4K videos. These high resolutions aren’t required and will take much longer for you to upload.

Improved photo watermark / overlay

The photo watermark has been improved to now include the photo date, roadworthy certificate number and the roadworthy testers number

Added new ‘Add to home screen’ option to run as an app

This new option brings an ‘app’ like experience to both the desktop PC and your phones or tablets, allowing you to open Roadworthy Logbook directly from your home screen.

On android or your PC you should see an ‘Add to home screen’ option once you have logged in. Click this and it will install as an application.

For iPhones and iPads, you can bring up the menu and click Add to home screen:

New expired status for 7 day expiry

This latest update to the web edition brings some improvements with the handling of expired inspections. Failed first inspections will still be automatically withdrawn however to simplify things we now have a new status called ‘Expired’ which clearly identifies that an inspection has been marked as expired after 7 days.  This also makes it much easier to manually set an inspection as expired. You can now simply select ‘Expired’ as the second inspection outcome.

Friendly reminder to backup your Roadworthy data

After having several customers face issues with their data recently I thought it would be good to remind everyone about the importance of backing your Roadworthy Logbook data.  March 31st also happens to be world backup day so what better day to ensure that your backups are in order.

Why backup your data?

  • In most cases it is nearly impossible to recover or replace the data once it has been lost.
  • Losing your data can be expensive in both time and money.
  • Data loss is more common than you think and usually caused by hardware failures, viruses or theft.

What is a backup?

A second copy of your data.  To be truly safe though, you should have 3 copies with one of these stored in a different physical location.

Backing up Roadworthy Logbook

Web Edition:

You don’t need to do anything.  Once your inspection has been saved then your data is automatically backed up.

  • Your roadworthy information is backed up every 5 minutes
  • Your inspection images are stored on multiple hard drives and in multiple locations.

For more information on the web edition please click here.

Desktop Edition (Local backup):

A good strategy for Roadworthy Logbook is to have at least 2 USB drives, with one of these always stored at a different physical location (BackupSet1 and BackupSet2).  Backup daily to BackupSet1 and then at the end of the week take this home and swap the drives over so the next week you will backup daily to BackupSet2.  This gives you your main copy on your PC and a locally stored backup no more than a day old.  Should the worst case scenario happen where you lose everything in the building, you can then fall back to your weekly backup from home.  If you only do a handful of inspections, then you could switch to weekly backups.

Desktop Edition (Online backup):

Backup all your inspections and photos directly to our web edition and let us handle it for you.  Simply click the online backup option from the file menu.

Note.  To use the online backup you will need to create an account first.  If you’re currently under maintenance, then you will be given full access until your maintenance expires.
