HYENA+ Consolidated User Data Update - ACADS-BSG

June 27, 2024by ACADS-BSG

The User Data screen in HYENA+ lets designers input custom pipe materials and fittings.


Currently, the User Data list is unique for each user in HYENA+. While this allows each user the freedom to customise their list as they see fit, the drawback is that if you are using custom materials or fittings and someone else opens your calculation, they need to have the same custom materials or fittings entered on their User Data screen for the calculation to run successfully.


Based on customer feedback, we are transitioning to a system where all User Data entries are shared across your company account. This means each company will have a consolidated User Data list accessible to all users.


When implemented over the coming months, an initial consolidated list will be created for each company, merging identical entries and including a new “Created By” column to show which user created each entry. This feature will apply both retrospectively and to future entries.


Additionally, this week we’ve added an “Export User Data” button to the User Data screen, allowing you to export your data to an AUX text file for safekeeping. While action on your part isn’t required, you have the option to export your User Data list ahead of the consolidation.

If you have any concerns or feedback on this upcoming change, feel free to contact us at admin@acadsbsg.com.au

The user interface for HYENA+ is much cleaner and more user friendly than the UI used for the original HYENA program. This makes the experience more enjoyable, easy, and less taxing when using the program for long periods of time. HYENA is an excellent tool to have and its now web-based nature with HYENA+ has allowed it to become even more beneficial.

It has always been a pleasure dealing with ACADS-BSG team due to their helpful nature and quick response time to any inquiries and technical issues. Camel\Hyena works out of the box and install time is in seconds, I cannot recommend any other company that provides better customer service other than Catherine and her team.

The ACADS BSG suite of software has been used by VOS Group for 30 years. We as a company have grown as the software capabilities have changed with usability and technology. The support from head office has always been quick and accurate, with a resolve to overcome any obstacles. We have always found the outputs to be accurate and reliable and a good basis for good engineering design.

Moving to a cloud based platform has improved the overall performance of the software. [being able to log in from any device] has improved my overall productivity as I only need to carry my smart phone or a tablet, and I can do my job remotely. Tools and functions are clearly organised within the new interface reducing any confusion for a new user. Copy+ Paste option saves a lot of time for Engineers like me. It just works like an Excel Sheet, where you can copy items and paste them somewhere else. It saves a lot of time especially if you are working on a single project and you want to do multiple calculations.

[HYENA+] allows me to quickly switch from one calculation to another without losing any data. This has reduced the overall lead time in doing calculations. I am sure [HYENA+] will have a positive impact on the Fire Industry.
