Tutorial - first steps

This tutorial will guide you through the first basic steps to enter a single data set in DiversityCollection. After the installation, make sure you have access to the database. To start the program double click on the DiversityCollection.exe in the directory where you copied the files of DiversityCollection. The main window will open.


If you open this window for the first time, you need to connect to the database. Click on the button or choose Connection -> Database... from the menu. A window will open where you may enter your account information and choose the database (see image below, for further information see database access). See a short tutorial .


After connecting to the server and choosing a database click on the OK button to return to the main form. As indicated by the symbol in the right upper corner, you are now connected to the database. The tooltip of the button will show your current login information (see below).
