Advanced Button

The Advanced options contain two tabs that provide tools for more specific search queries:

  • Search Constraint tab — The Search Constraint tab consists of the Constraints tab with two fields: Search Criteria for adding and removing constraints, and Search Fields for selecting the areas to define your search categories. ROCK MAKER uses these constraints to filter the database when you conduct a search, and you can apply multiple constraints to your search. Select the desired constraint(s) from the available list in the Search Fields and then click the Add Constraint button. You can use the Remove Constraint button, the Add AND button, and the Add OR button according to your needs, or select a specific date that corresponds to the data you are searching for. If you select the Use Latest Inspection Only option, only the latest image inspection will appear in your search result.
