What is a Trigger Code and how do I get one?

A trigger code is a unique code number required to register your GAGEtrak license. If you don't obtain a trigger code within 30 days of installing GAGEtrak, you will receive a message from GAGEtrak saying that your trial period has expired. Obtaining a trigger code will remove this expiration date. You may also require a new trigger code after reinstalling GAGEtrak because of a workstation upgrade or if GAGEtrak is moved to a new workstation.

GAGEtrak 7 Tech Tip
Certificates of Calibration in GAGEtrak 7

Evidence of calibration is significant when you need to prove the gage you are using has been verified. Typically that evidence is documented in the form of a Certificate of Calibration; the certificate number is used to track the validation of the gage.

GAGEtrak allows you to generate/record a certificate number for each calibration; this is done within the Calibrations -> Calibration tab. If you perform your calibrations in-house or if you provide calibration services for satellite facilities, GAGEtrak can generate automatically incremental certificate numbers for you. If you outsource your calibrations, you would manually enter the number and then attach the certificate in the User Def and Attachments tab.

certificate number field

To generate a certificate number, click the button to the right of the Certificate No field. By default, the incremental numbering format starts at 000000000; however, this can be customized within the Setup -> Settings -> Automatic Numbering tab:

calibration certificate numbering scheme

The Format shown above uses the date (in the form of the month and two-digit year) followed by an incremental number. The Last Number Issued is either your starting point when defining a new format or it's truly the last number issued when the format has already been used. Using such a format, the incremental number will reset itself when the date unit changes. For instance, if you issue 75 certificates in October of 2015, the last number would be 1015-075. On November 1st, the number would start at 1115-000.

Within the Automatic Numbering tab, you'll find instructions on how to further customize your numbering.

We encourage you to explore the additional capabilities of your GAGEtrak software and as always, keep an eye out for future Tech Tips.
