👁‍🗨How to pre-fill your reports with Horus CR Pro?

With Horus CR Pro version, you can import information as the artwork’s title, accession numbers, material and techniques, dimensions…in .csv format.


1. Prepare the file

If you use collection management software, you probably can export data in .csv. If you are using Excel, create a sheet with the artwork you want to examine.
👉🏽Copy and paste your columns in the template attached.
You can import:
  • Information about the report: reporter name and function, contact details, the objective of the report, report number.
  • Artworks information: title/dénomination, artist, date, accession n°, typologies, collection, material and techniques, Other (description, technical info), localization, dimensions.
  • A synthesis of the previous condition report in General comments (to be updated) and recommendations.

For dimensions, depending on your export, you will perhaps have to concatenate cells and clean up the punctuation marks.
Fill in the first 2 columns by hand and stretch them to repeat the content (You can include line breaks in cells).
On Excel: Save as “CSV UTF-08 (delimited by semicolons)“. On Numbers: Export under “CSV”
If you don’t have access to wifi, on Android, plug in your tablet and drag and drop your file into documents (Android) or into the Horus CR Pro, Numbers, or Files folder (for IOS via iTunes).
You can also use airdrop (IOS), Bluetooth, mail…
