LogTag Recalibration: Manual Temperature Entry

If you sent your LogTag thermometer for recalibration, VFC will give you temporary access to enter your temperatures manually into Florida SHOTS. When adding temperatures, make sure to click on the “Add Temp Reading” link for the unit instead of “Add Missing Temp Reading.” This will prevent adding a “missing temperature” excursion by mistake.

Also, feel free to contact the VFC Program to request your manual access to be extended if you haven’t received your Log Tag before the access expires. Check out our LogTag Recalibration FAQs HERE!

Recently Recalibrated Your Log Tag?

If you’ve recently recalibrated one or more of your Log Tag thermometers, make sure to also update the new expiration date within Florida SHOTS.  To do this, navigate to your refrigerator/freezer unit’s “Calibration Log,” found on the menu within the “Temperature Logs” page in Florida SHOTS. Once you see the “Calibration Log,” double click on the Log Tag line item to open the “Update Calibration Record” screen.  Enter the new calibration expiration date in the “Expiration Date” field and click on the “Change” button to save. That’s it!
