Installation Considerations

Consider the following items before upgrading the Field Time database and web application.

  • If you are installing Field Time on a test system, perform the installation steps on the test server. The test server should be separate from the production server.
  • If you have customized your system (for example, reports, projects, or database triggers), install the new version on a test environment before loading on a live environment.
  • The upgrade overwrites standard reports. If you have customized any reports, rename them so that your changes are left intact.
  • The upgrade takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. This excludes time to perform backups or install clients (if applicable).
