Options to Record Analysis Data

There are several ways to record and track Analysis data in InnoVint. Analyses can be recorded on Fruit or Juice/Wine lots at any point in time; from recording vineyard maturity analysis on Fruit lots before harvest, to quality control analysis for bottled wines, and everything in between.

This article provides a brief overview of the different ways you can record and track analysis data in InnoVint's web interface. 

For a more in-depth look at each feature, follow the links in each section.  To find out about how to track and report on recorded analyses, look at our article here

This article covers:

Choosing an Analysis Source

Anytime that analyses are entered into InnoVint - either by an Analysis direct action, as a task in a work order, or by Analysis Import - you have the option to select a source. The source logo will be displayed in the Lot details Dashboard...

...and also in the Analysis tab > All analyses in a list.

The analysis source will default to In-House at data entry. If your analysis source is not a current option in the list, select Not Specified as your source, and a logo will not be displayed.

Recording Analysis

Analysis can be recorded on one or more fruit or juice/wine lots at a time via direct actions and work orders.

Find more details on how to use Direct Actions or Work Orders here.

Using the Analysis direct action

Scheduling Analysis in a Work Order

For detailed instructions on how to create a single work order, click here .

Analysis Panels

Analysis Panels are saved sets of analyses that can be used to record analyses in a direct action or scheduled in a work order.

Creating Panels

You can create a new Analysis Panel from within an Analysis direct action, or when initially creating an Analysis Task within a work order (but not after work order creation).

Editing or Deleting Panels

You can add or remove analyses from a panel from within a direct action or work order task, but you will not be able to save the changes. Analysis panels cannot be edited; you will need to delete the panel and re-create a new one to make any changes.


Using the Analysis Import

The Analysis Import feature allows you to import analysis data in bulk via a csv file for one or more lots or vessels. The csv must match either format outlined in this article. 

Find more details on how to use the import here

Find the analysis import templates here.


Analysis Import is completed via a direct action, and can be accessed via the Record action menu on either the top navigation bar or the Lot Details page.

ETS Integration

InnoVint and ETS have established a partnership that allows for analysis results to be posted directly into InnoVint's platform. The feature links sample codes between InnoVint and ETS, allowing for a seamless integration without any manual data entry.

See our ETS Integration Overview article here, and the Step by Step guide here.  

Create ETS samples via the Sample Explorer on the Lefthand NAV menu... 

...or create a sample in a work order. Just choose "Pull sample for ETS" from the Work Order task menu.


Using InnoApp

Go here to find detailed information on entering analyses via InnoApp.

You can enter analyses on InnoApp via Quick Actions or the Lot or Vessel details pages:


Analysis Types (Lot composite versus Individual Vessel)

Each analysis action provides the option to record the analysis against a "Lot composite" or "Individual Vessel(s)."

This decision impacts your analysis history and reporting.  Here are some things to consider:

Lot composite analysis

  • Lot composite is always tied to the unique lot code.
  • It is copied over to the new lot created via a B2B to another InnoVint Winery or B2B within winery action.
  • Lot composite analyses can be backdated to the appropriate date at ANY time during a lot's history, regardless of the lot's vessel or time of lot creation.
  • Lot Composite analysis is reported via InnoVint's standard Winemaking Analysis Reports, Custom Analysis Report (Lot Composite) and the Recent Analysis report. 

Individual Vessel analysis

  • Individual Vessel analysis is also tied to the lot, but is also strongly related to the vessel code (which is displayed on relevant analysis results).
  • Individual Vessel analysis is not copied over to a new lot created via a B2B to another InnoVint Winery or B2B within winery action. 
  • This type of analysis can only be backdated during the time while the lot is contained in that vessel, i.e. the lot must be in the desired vessel at the point in time you are entering analysis. 
  • Individual Vessel analysis is reported via InnoVint's standard Winemaking Analysis Reports, Custom Analysis Report (Individual Vessel) and the Recent Analysis report. 
  • Individual Vessel analysis is the DEFAULT analysis type on work orders generated by Fermentation Management Worksheets (FermGen).
    • The FermGen displays analysis data on the current vessel and any Lot Composite analysis. If your lot changes vessel, any Individual Vessel analysis on the prior vessel is not displayed on the FermGen graph, but previously recorded Lot Composite data will display.
