Configuring your tank map

This feature was added in vintrace Version 6.2.1

The vintrace Tank Map is a visual tool that gives you the ability to map vessels in your winery from a bird’s-eye view. You can then see a detailed status and record operations directly to those tanks.

The tank map allows you to configure a grid layout of any size and gives you the flexibility to show status information relevant to you.

You can also configure multiple tank map views for the same tanks to show different status information at different times during the year/season.
