    +++ Update Project Assistant 1.2: Step 4 - Option B +++ Intro: The Project Assistant offers two ways of importing existing project data: Option 1) Importing a .bpassist file, which was exported from the app at some point and which contains all information and data ever created/entered inside the app for that specific project. Simply select the "Project Assistant" mode >> click "continue" >> and press "import". Option 2) Importing from a tab-separated text file. This option may be useful, if you have existing project data, e.g. in an Excel spreadsheet, which you want to transfer into the Project Assistant for further use. This article deals with option 2 and explains the steps potentially needed before you can refer to the steps explained in the following Youtube video ("Import from file"). Let's assume you already have existing project data prepared in an Excel spreadsheet and you want to transfer that data into a format that can be imported to the Project Assistant Go to the Bosch Security Systems DownloadStore and download the provided template file "example_project_import_report_template.txt" Import the template file into Excel by opening the template file with Excel and following these steps:  Select "delimited" as well as "My data has headers." Select "Tab" in the Delimiters section and finish up the Excel import by pressing "Finish". [Option A] According to the provided data columns, copy and paste your existing data from your initial spreadsheet file into the template file (you do not need to populate every column of the template) [Option B] This option works the other way around. Use the Project Assistant header tags, e.g. [ip], [mac], etc., which you can find in the template file and add these tags to the column headers in your initial Excel spreadsheet (cf. screenshot below). The Project Assistant is capable of searching the .txt import file for these tags and of filtering out the corresponding columns (no matter the order of the columns). Go to "Save As" in Excel and save the newly populated template file as a "Unicode Text (*.txt")" file   Transfer the file to where you can find it with the Project Assistant and start the app Create a new project Set a password for the project itself as well as default passwords for the cameras that you would like to assign That's it - Now it is time to refer to the Youtube video mentioned above Enjoy using the Project Assistant and feel free to share your feedback with us!

    For larger projects, where many cameras need to be commissioned, the question might come up on how to tackle it in the most efficient way using the Project Assistant. In the end, a Project Assistant file can comprise up to 500 cameras. Especially if multiple contributors perform the commissioning step in parallel, you need an appropriate approach. For visualization reasons, let's use a simple example. Let's imagine we have a project that comprises 500 new cameras in total. 250 cameras for building A and another 250 cameras for building B. Here are two options: Creating multiple (sub-) projects and merge them in Configuation Manager If you cannot use Dropbox for synchronisation via the cloud, you can simply create 2 projects - one for building A and one for building B. Both projects can be prepared ahead of time, e.g. in the office, and exported in order to share them. Sharing the exported as well as encrypted project files can be done via E-mail, thumb drive, any of the major cloud storage services, etc.*. Now let's assume that there is one contributor working on building A and one working on building B. After each contributor has commissioned his or her 250 cameras each, they can themselves export the project files. To re-combine or merge both sub-projects, we have introduced a Project Assistant project file import feature in our Bosch Configuration Manager 6.10. This feature allows you to conveniently import multiple project files at once and to easily integrate them into your existing system structure. Please, check out the corresponding "How to import project files into Configuration Manager 6.10" article in this community. * Restrictions due to project file size might apply depending on the sharing medium. The synchronization functionality is only available for Dropbox. Using the Dropbox Synchronization feature This feature let's you plan and preprare a project ahead of time, e.g. in the office, which can then be shared via Dropbox with multiple other contributors as needed. That means everyone that was "invited" to work on this project has access to the same project file, where there is only one "master" version residing in the cloud that is accessed and synchronized via Dropbox. Consequently, you can avoid managing multiple versions of the same project file. Therefore, depending on the internet connectivity of all contributor's devices, you can see the real-time progress of the project, no matter if you are in building A, building B or even in the office. All updates to the project are immediately synced via Dropbox among all contributors. If you want to know how to setup it up, please check out the following videos:   Of course, the Project Assistant project file import feature in our Bosch Configuration Manager 6.10 is also available for futher configuration and system integration for this option, as well.

    Symptoms When scanning a QR or Data Matrix code on a label using the Project Assistant app, it can happen that you get an error message that the MAC address cannot be found (1) or that only part of the address is correctly extracted (2). Diagnosis  First of all, there are different types of labels: product labels (on the device) box labels (on the outside of the box/packaging) installer / UX labels (inside the box /packaging) Symptom (1) can only happen when scanning a product label because some QR or Data Matrix codes do not contain a MAC address, depending on the product, even though the MAC address is available in plain text right next to the code.   The box and installer label codes, however, always contain the MAC address information. Symptom (2) can happen when scanning certain installer labels due to legacy formatting. Solution We have further standardized the labels so that the symptoms mentioned above will be resolved. There will be a transition period, however. As an alternative for symptom 1, you will have smooth experience when preferably scanning the box label. If you encounter symptom 2, we ask you to enter the MAC address manually or use the December 2018 release of the Project Assistant (version 1.2) PS: For full transparancy on QR code / Data Matrix content and/or troubleshooting purposes, you can use conventional code scanning apps available in the resepective app stores.

    The name that you assign to a camera in the Project Assistant is currently not displayed in the Configuration Manager device list.  This will be fixed with the next version of the Project Assistant, which is planned to be released in November 2018.   Current experience: Setting camera name in Project Assistant   Current Configuration Manager view (based on Project Assistant version 1.1) Camera name is only displayed in the "Camera name" section on the right-hand side, not in the device list on the left. You only see the camera's IP address.
