The material contained within this user guide is designed to provide an introduction and reference for the OpenGround Data Entry package.
The Data Entry Module is built into every version of OpenGround Standard and OpenGround Professional. However, if you have staff that only need to enter or edit data, then you can simplify the process for them and reduce costs, by buying standalone Data Entry Modules.
All Data Entry profiles created in OpenGround can be used by the Data Entry Module and data entered and edited via the Data Entry Module is immediately accessible to all other users of OpenGround.
Primarily, this document is structured to deal with concepts and functionality in a logical and theme-based manner. As such, the guide can be read progressively. At the start of each chapter, you will find an introduction section that gives you an overview of the capabilities of the system related to the chapter. You may find it useful to start by reading these introductions only as this should give you an overview of what OpenGround Data Entry can do and which parts you need to learn more about. Further information can be found regarding a topic by the use of the related articles section of each page or elsewhere on Bentley Assist.
Numbered paragraphs are used to describe step by step instructions on a task or series of related tasks. The pipe (|) symbol denotes options on a cascading menu, as in Manage | Tests.
