In addition to manually exporting charts as HTML documents, ProFicient can be scheduled for automatic HTML chart publishing to user-defined locations (typically on a company's Intranet server or on a desired Internet site). This feature allows access to InfinityQS charts, graphs and reports without requiring ProFicient to be installed on users’ computers.
Web Publishing also automatically displays time-specific data based on projects that have been configured. For example, you could have a quarterly quality meeting report that summarizes all data for the previous quarter that publishes on the first day of each quarter. Likewise, a daily report project might be scheduled to automatically publish all charts and graphs each morning at 6:00 A.M.
