Hi all, 

We utilised the Sample Plan funcations of pLog in a recent sampling event and it seems that there are a number of issues with syncing between ESdat & pLog:

- sample IDs assined in LSPECS DO NOT sync to pLog Sample Plan (i.e. the field remains blank on the tablet) 

- sample ID created on the tablet do not sync to ESdat (instead it is populated using the ESdat autmoated IDs (i.e. [Locationcode][Well]_[Date])

- photos captured against a location visit are not synced to ESdat

- Collected "Purge volume" in tablet links to "Groundwater Data: Comments" rather than the "Purge volume (L)" field

Is this a larger issue or can thes be resolved with who our server syncs with pLog cloud?

Hi Jacob,

Hopefuly this can help resolve your issues:

  • Planned sample IDs are not sent to pLog from LSPECS, only the planned Location is.  pLog will always use the formats that are configured in it's settings menu, which goes to your second point.
  • pLog sample IDs formats are configured in Preference - Default Values.  These relate to the Chemistry Samples in the SDG.  The Field ID sent back to ESdat for your water quality parameters is created by a concatenation of the different fields you mentioned.  This is also generated in pLog (not ESdat).
  • Photo's should sync to ESdat.  Make sure you have selected the Upload Photos option when you sync the tablet, and confirm that they have been uploaded using your pLog Cloud account.
  • ESdat standard schema does not have a "Purge volume (L)" field.  If you hav eone it must be a custom field.  You can view the standard mappings here:  If you want to create your own custom mappings please read the entry here:

With regards to feedback on how the Field ID is generated and potential issues with photos syncing, I recommend you follow up directly with Dataforensics support, as they create and manage everything on the tablet and syncing between the tablet and pLog Cloud.

Hi Nick, We have been persevering with the sample plan function of pLog, however continue to encounter syncing issues. Specifically, field data from water purging is not syncing properly: - details do not sync unless all details are filled out (even if these parameters are removed as "planned" in LSPECS) - field chem data doesn't not sync too the monitoring rounds whilst some details (like time and purge volume) Now that this is not an issue with Data forensics as the information can be found in the services logs within the plog tab. Would appreciate your help with this. Thanks, Jacob
