|AUDIT SPACE OPTIONS:
following is a brief description of each of the audit
Continually refresh audit space list box
Selecting this option will cause the 'Entered Spaces'
list box on the audit form to always show the most
current audit space information. If this option is turned
off, then the list box will only be refreshed on certain
events (such as searching). It is recommended that this
option be turned off in order to speed up the time it
takes to browse audit space records.
Set / Change Audit Password
Pressing this button brings up the 'Set / Change Audit
Password' screen that allows the user to apply, remove,
or change a password for the current audit. This password
will completely secure the entire audit from unauthorized
Project Specific Costs
This is where specific budget costs can be applied to
an audit for reflection on the 'Budget Costs' report
found in the 'Reports' section of the database.
Define Annual Hour Reductions
Annual hour reductions are defined in order to
compensate for lighting schedules that do not apply for
an entire year. A good example of such a project would be
Replicate Model Audit To Construction
Replicating an audit is where an entire model or
construction audit is duplicated. If the initial audit
was designated as a 'model' audit, then the replicated
audit will be the 'construction' audit.
An audit can only be replicated if the other audit
type does not yet exist. The normal usage for this
feature would be to create a complete model audit with
the original audit data taken from the field audit, then
replicate the audit over to construction. Once
construction has a copy of the audit, they can make
changes to their copy as the project progresses without
changing the initial model audit.
Passwords can be separately applied to the model and
construction audits with a single project. This ensures
audit integrity throughout the length of the project.
This dual audit approach also will allow for queries
and reports to be created that can analyze the
differences between the initial audit and the final
(after construction) audit. This information could be
extremely valuable in fine tuning the auditing process
