Jaltest Main Screen Explained

Jaltest Main Screen Explained

In this Jaltest Software tutorial we are going to walk through the design and layout of the Jaltest main screen. Here we will be going over the icons on the main screen that are not associated with connecting to an engine. 

Help Icon

The Help Icon is located on the far left of the menu at the top of the screen. This icon houses information such as Remote Assistance and an Installation Guide for installing the software.

There is also a glossary of terms that defines acronyms that are used in the software (shown below.)

Other items found under the Help icon include Contact Details, Unit Conversions,  Icon Description which has photos and descriptions of all icons used in the system (shown below.) Finally, there is an Innovations section which details any new improvements/additions that have been recently added to the Jaltest Software.

The Camera

The Camera icon takes a snapshot of anything on the screen. This is very helpful to provide reminders of the steps you have taken during a diagnosis. There are options available to print the snapshot (with or without a diagnosis report) or to send the screenshot to Jaltest as a means of providing feedback.

The Keyboard Icon

Clicking the keyboard icon will bring up an on screen keyboard. This is helpful for anyone using a tablet or touchscreen computer. In most cases this is not needed, but it is a welcome addition for those few folks using a tablet.
