Access Results with ACL Robotics Professional Edition
Every licensed ACL Robotics Professional Edition customer receives access to Results with a limited number of tables. Results provides a secure platform for review and workflow remediation. It is designed to easily share data with broader audiences.
The ability to import data from Results to ACL Analytics allows you to perform secondary or follow-up analysis on exceptions. After performing the analysis, you can export data back to Results in a round-trip process.
Each organization that uses Results as part of ACL Robotics Professional Edition is restricted to the default tables and five user-created tables.
|Table type||Maximum Number Allowed||Description|
|Default tables||17||These tables are automatically included with all Results subscriptions. Find them in the Your First Collection and Template Questionnaires collections. They do not count against your user-created table limit.|
|User-created tables||5||These are tables created by you or someone in your organization. These other tables can be made up of data analytics, event reports, or surveys. You can divide them between any number of collections.
If your organization used Results Lite before the table limit was implemented on January 24, 2019, all of your tables are still present and functional. However, you cannot create new tables until your table count is below five.

Frequently asked questions
How do I access Results?

Once this is done, you can find the link to Results in Launchpad.
If I use Results, is all my data in the cloud?
No. ACL Analytics processes data within your data center. You have full control over what data you choose to export to Results for review and collaboration purposes.
How is Results organized?
Collections are the highest level of organization. You can manage the level of access users have to Collections by assigning them the appropriate role.
