dataSAVI Cardinal is Live!

posted 22 Jul 2015, 01:28 by Adam Lester-George   [ updated 23 Jul 2015, 03:16 by Tyeth Gundry ]

dataSAVI Cardinal (v5.00) was republished on 23-July-2015 at 11:00.

You can access the file via the dataSAVI website

This version of the tool sees a few design changes – the tool now scales to the size and resolution of your computer display and the apps menu has been moved off to the side to maximise the use of the available space. This edition we have also added a search tool to help you find what you’re looking for – why not try asking it “where can I compare alcohol and tobacco data?” or “how do I view my quit rates?”

For more information, please see the version log.

dataSAVI Casal released!

posted 23 Apr 2015, 02:26 by Adam Lester-George

After a brief hiatus, we are back with dataSAVI Casal, published on April 23rd 2015 at 10.00 UK time.

The tool now includes the Précis feature, a dynamic narrative report available for our partners in participating local authorities (with a limited report available for LAs not currently signed-up to the project). 

dataSAVI Cardinal will be published in July 2015 and will be the final edition of the Excel pilot; we hope to include datasets relating to Public Health issues beyond tobacco use (such as alcohol use) in preparation for the launch of our online tool dataSAVI Connect, in the Autumn.
