What is the template for a shift summary?

Question

What is the template for a shift summary?​

Answer

At the end of your beam time, the experimental team on shift must put in a summary. This really helps communication with the users, accelerator physicists and accelerator operators. We also use the reports from you to write the reports to DOE about how we are using beam time.
 
To generate and summary go to http://ad-ops.slac.stanford.edu/facet-shift-report/shift_summary_form/ and fill out the form. You can edit your report as many times as you like and save it to the database. When you are completely finished click on "Save and Submit to Logbook" and the report will be saved in a data-base and also an entry will be made in the FACET e-log. Please check the e-log to ensure the shift summary was added. The link at the bottom of the database report should take you to the e-log entry. If it does not please look at the e-log corersponding to the "Time to Post to E-Log".
 
ONCE THE REPORT IS SUBMITTED YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE IT. IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE AFTER SUBMIIING THE REPORT CONTACT CHRISTINE CLARKE.
 
Time and date format are YYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS. You have to follow this format.
 
Sometime Internet Explorer does not behave. Google Chrome will work under these circumstaces.
 
The beam parameters needed for the form are the nominal/typical running values for the shift.

The facet elog uses a mark-up text so copy and paste the template below. The mark-up (exclamation marks) make the subsequent text into headings.
 
Parasitic programs also need to put in their own summary of beam time. Mark it as "parasitic" so it's clear it wasn't the main program. 
 
An example of the perfect summary. (Needs to be on SLAC network to view- VPN if off-site or on visitor wireless)
