Making the test company visibly different from live

Hi all,

Sorry for the simple question, but in Vantage 8.0, how do you modify
the colors?

Thanks,

Erik

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone could help. We recently have had the situation where
people have created things in the live company on Vantage thinking that
they were in the test company. I wondered if there was a way that anyone
could suggest of making it very obvious if they were logging into the test
company (for instance background colour changes etc).

At the moment each time we restore a copy of live into the test company we
change the company name to include the words "Test". However this is not
very obvious. I personally change my colours so that it is obvious, but
I am not sure if there is a way of doing this for all users...

Can anyone suggest anything? Any ideas will be grately appreciated.

Thank you
Sarah
We rename the test company

>>>>>>TEST CCYYMMDD<<<<<<<<

Or something similar. The date lets users know the date of the restored database.

One thing we also do is to not use the standard default database setup for the test database. I create a new database instance with separate port and then create a new .mfg file to run this database. This does two things for us. First, since this database can not be run unless I.T. manually edits the services file and adds a shortcut it definitely cuts down on the number of accidental launches of this particular database. Usually only the more advanced users get access so they can experiment with procedural changes, software functionality, etc. Second, we do not set the database to autolaunch on restart. This allows some additional control by forcing the users to contact I.T. when they want to use this database. In all honesty however, we often keep the database running since step one usually keeps the number of users so narrow that we don't need the additional control.

We haven't had a single instance of accidental data entry into the training or testing database since we implemented this process.

I've made a copy of the Vantage.ini file, renaming it, changed some of the colors as shown below, and replaced the "vantage.ini" file in the in the test db 'vtg' file that starts the vantage session with the new one. My changes don't change all the colors, just some of the text and background colors of fields that require data to be entered. It's not foolproof, as some users have used the wrong db, but surprisingly they have used the test db thinking they were in the live db

Sarah,

We do the same as Frank does: rename the Test Company to TRAINING. However,
other than that main Vantage Menu, the company name does not appear in any
title bar, so make sure your users only sign on to ONE database. If they
intentionally log on to Training, they should NOT go into Live, and vise
versa. Log off of one, and then log on to another.

We also name our Training DB "TEST*TEST*TEST. And we do not put a
desktop icon to it.
The user must access it through the start/run/programs option.
I agree, only log into either the test or live. Even I have made mistakes

One option is to create one account for accessing the test database and give it funky colors. All users would ONLY use this account and you would need to deactivate all other accounts. DO NOT put that account in the live database. Recreate it every time you copy the database over into the test database.

It's a few extra steps but it will help them identify which database they are in.

First thing I do is add "TRAINING" to the company name, then tell folks to pick real ugly colors for their favorites section.

The UserFile table doesn't really have any associated triggers attached to it and you can write to and change most of the fields in this table without any problems. Simply decide on an ugly color scheme, then with a simple for each loop program, set each users colors and set the allow change settings to no. Then every time you update your training database, run this program against it. Now all the training users will have ugly colors and not be allowed to change them.
