 What is Vessel Update
New in Dynochem 6, Vessel Update allows you to access and import your equipment data easily into Dynochem utilities.  Your end-user community no longer needs to know the location of the database as that information is securely accessible through each user's Scale-up Account profile, using the new Scale-up Suite Equipment Data Service.  Your vessel information is visible only to the list of users defined by your administrator of your data service.
 How can I use it?

When working in a Dynochem vessel utility, click Vessel Update in the ribbon.  The contents of your VesselDB and Impeller properties worksheets (including baffles and other internals) will be updated to reflect your own organization's equipment data.

To make this magic work, the custodian of your vessel database needs to set up a Scale-up Suite Equipment Data Service and import the information in our standard format.  This also makes the vessel database visible securely to defined end users on any device, using their web browsers, and in Microsoft Office applications using the Catalist and Properties features in the Dynochem ribbon (Excel), Numero ribbon (Word, Outlook, PowerPoint) and Plaintext in the Numero ribbon.

That means that equipment information is at your users' fingertips whenever they are working in Excel or writing emails, reports or presentations, with no need for them to change applications.  To find out more about the Equipment Data Service and how to set it up, please see this KB Article.

Note that during 2022, this has become the standard way to use equipment data in Scale-up Suite and the only supported way in the latest versions of the equipment utilities.
