How to get a User Account
- To have a user account created, send an email to email@example.com requesting a new user account. Once an account has been created for you, you will receive an email with your username and password. You can use this username and password to access the QNOPY mobile app, as well as the QNOPY web portal.
Overview – the Flow of QNOPY
- To start using the QNOPY app for you data collection, first you will need a project. Once a project is created, you then have the ability to assign the forms that are necessary, for example, a groundwater monitoring form. After this, you can assign users to the project. Once the project is created, forms are assigned, and users are assigned, you are able to use the forms by starting a field event.
Navigating the Mobile App
- My Events: Shows all active and closed events.
- My Projects: Shows all projects you are assigned to.
- Calendar View: Shows any active or closed field events by date.
- Tasks: Shows any active or completed tasks for all projects.
- Project Folder: Located in each event, the project folder holds any documents that would be beneficial to the project, added by the project manager.
- Hospital Map: Can be used to quickly navigate to the closest hospital. Click on the H in the top right corner to instantly know where to go.
- Draw: Can be accessed in every site location. Draw gives you the ability to quickly make a note on a picture that was captured or even on aerial site images.
- Field event in QNOPY represents an actual on-site field event such as a second-quarter groundwater monitoring event at a site. Under this event, if you record sampling data for 25 monitoring wells then all that data is given a unique Event ID in the QNOPY database.
- Events allow you to keep data for an actual event together and print all of it at once. You can record sampling data for a field point at multiple times during a year and separate it under field events.
