Open a previous file revision as Read Only in File Manager

In File Manager, you can now open a previous Agrimaster or Wagemaster revision file as Read Only. This will allow you to view data, compare data to a newer version or to import data into newer versions of the file.

To open a read only version of a revision, navigate to the revision in the File history panel.

Click on the drop down menu and select Open file – Read Onlymceclip16.png

Prior to the file opening, the Open file - Read Only prompt will ask you to confirm by clicking in the checkbox “I understand and wish to Proceed”. Now click on the blue button, Open- Read Only. mceclip17.png

NOTE: If you chose to download the file, it will consume your internet data limit/quota. mceclip18.png

Agrimaster will show the file is in open in Read Only mode by:

  • Agrimaster indicates the file is open in bold red lettering ”READ ONLY FILE” in all main menu screens.

  • The Agrimaster file header path at the top of the screen indicates READ ONLY FILE. mceclip19.png

  • In READ ONLY FILE mode, you can view data and run reports in Agrimaster as per normal. But, if you changes to the file, these will NOT be saved or backed up to File Manager.

This file is opened in a temporary location and will be cleared when File Manager is closed.

Other Users who have access to the file, will not see any indications that the file is opened by you in Read Only mode. Therefore, they can continue as usual and work on the file.

Even if another User has uploaded a newer version of the file, the Read Only version you have open will not be updated.

Upon closing the Read Only file, no record is added on to the File Manager history.

NOTE: You can use the Copy File Anywhere function from Agrimaster to save this version for importing data into newer versions.
