This tool is designed to offer a structured review of the most important web pages for daily QC work. In default mode (or option -l), it displays a configurable set of web pages relevant for the instrument account to be reviewed. In mode -q ("qc_shift"), it offers the sequence of web pages for the QC shiftleader review.

The configured URLs are displayed in a separate window, on top of the existing browser window.

Configuration file

The tool has the configuration file config.dfoManager. It splits in two parts:

- the part for the local configuration
- the part for the QC Shiftleader configuration.

You need to edit the template configuration for the local review since it is instrument dependent. Feel free to add more local pages to your review.
