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 against 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.

Creating a tank map
To create your map click the Tank Map icon from the Quick Launch Menu on the left side of the Dashboard.
Click on add button (large plus sign) in View tank map screen; select New Tank map.
Enter the name you want to give your tank map, view restrictions (for multi-winery mode), the number tanks you want to see horizontally and vertically, and select the starting zoom level of your tank map.
Decide what additional information you want to show for each tank and the metrics you would like to see (maximum of five of each).
Select the details/metrics you want to see for each tank in the tank map by use the right arrow to move a detail or metric from Available column into the Selected column. This information will be displayed in your tank card (a visual representation of your tank in the tank map).
To remove a detail or metric, click on it in the Selected section, then click the left arrow to move it back to the available choices.
In the example above, we have added Product state, Batch owner, Grading, Batch description and Program details to the Selected column.
Tip: You can change the order of the details in the Selected column by dragging it up or down.
You can also show metrics in the tank cards by selecting which metrics you want to see. In the example below, we have selected Alcohol and Free SO2, Glucose/Fructose, pH and Titratable Acidity.
Note: only Measured metrics will be displayed. Calculated and Indeterminate metrics will not be available.
You can configure multiple tank map views for the same tanks to show different status information at different times during the year/season by creating another tank map (repeat previous steps), select the same tanks, and then selecting different details and metrics for that Tank map. For example if you want a tank map view for fermentation, you select the same tanks, and then select Brix, Temp, pH in the metrics. Selecting of tanks will be done in the the next step.
When you are satisfied, click Next.
This will take you to the Map tab. Here you can add the tanks you want to layout in the Tank map. You can add tanks by entering the name in the Add equipment field.
Alternatively, you can click on the From search button to bring up the vessel search.
In the example below, we have clicked on All button to select all tanks in the vessel search results. Then click on Use button to add them to the tank card deck
The tanks have been added to the tank card deck.
Next, click on the tank card and then drag and drop it to the tile where you want to place it.
