To streamline archive configuration, use the Rapid Archive wizard to generate archives based on .xls Rapid Archive Schedule files. You import the Rapid Archive Schedule files into the Rapid Archive Field Controller wizard.

Important: Use version 3 of the Rapid Archive Schedule with SCT Release 13.0 and later. At Release 13.0 the Rapid Archive Schedule spreadsheet is installed on the SCT computer at C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\RAC.

If you are a Johnson Controls employee, you can view informational videos about Rapid Archive Creation on the uLearn site: https://jc.kzoplatform.com/containers/928995312607959016.

Figure 1. Sample Rapid Archive Schedule

Keep in mind the following recommendations when working with Rapid Archive Schedules:

Important: The Rapid Archive Field Controller wizard is case-sensitive.
  • You must not edit Column headings in the Rapid Archive Schedule file that are used by the Rapid Archive Field Controller Creation wizard feature. At SCT Release 13.0 you can reorder the columns and insert custom columns for your own reference, and not affect the import.
  • You can alter columns not specifically called out in the following table and not impact the Rapid Archive Field Controller Creation wizard process.
  • You can pre-select the supervisory devices that you want to edit in the all Items tree, prior to opening the rapid archive feature. If you do not pre-select any supervisory devices, the Select Scope window appears after launching the rapid archive feature.
  • As best practice, create multiple Rapid Archive Schedules based on device-level hierarchy, for example, individual room schedules for chillers, boilers, air handling units, and terminal units.
  • If you are required to enter a name, use the Name attribute of the Object.
