Checking Data

The Data Check page of the Administration Console lets you check your database for potential problems that could impact usability of the system.

The Data Check only runs when an administrator invokes it.

When running the Data Check, start by running one option at a time to make the resulting report easier to work with.

The Data Check flags items found during its search with either a High, Medium, or Low severity flag. High Severity items are ambiguous choices that cannot be resolved by a badge user during a call, while Medium or Low severity items can be resolved.

To check your data manually:

  1. Click Maintenance in the navigation bar.
  2. Click the Data Check tab to display the Data Check page.
  3. Select one or more checkboxes for the data types to check:
    • Names
    • Phone Numbers
    • Groups
    • Departments
    Note: You should only check one checkbox at a time to make the report manageable. If you run the Data Check for names and the report seems unusually large, go to the Systems screen and temporarily uncheck the "First Name and Department" checkbox in the Preferences tab. Be sure to click Save Changes before returning to the Data Check to run the report again.
  4. Click the Check button.
    Vocera checks your data and displays the results in the Data Check Warnings dialog box. See Data Check Warnings for additional information.
