When I register (or deregister) a person I get too few (too many) dosimeters delivered, what is the reason?

The number of dosimeters ordered does not automatically adjust when an employee registers or deregisters. If your dosimeter requirements change, please adjust them accordingly under Kategorie „Bestellung“ –> Ansicht „Dosimeter“ .

I have registered a person, there are enough dosimeters, but no dosimeter is automatically assigned, why?

After new registration of an employee, the pre-assignment is not automatically activated. Pre-assignment has the effect that if a sufficient number of dosimeters has been ordered, a dosimeter will be assigned to the employee during the next regular shipment. You can activate the pre-assignment under Kategorie „Mitarbeit“ –> Ansicht „Überwacht“.

When creating a new person, the message „unbehandelter technischer Fehler – Bitte kontaktieren Sie den Support“ appears - what is the reason for this?

This error message appears if the employee already exists. Please check the lists under Kategorie „Mitarbeit“ –> Ansicht „Überwacht“ as well as Ansicht „Nicht überwacht“.

When assigning a dosimeter to a person, the message „unbehandelter technischer Fehler – Bitte kontaktieren Sie den Support“ appears - what is the reason for this?

Since the deadlines of the supervisory authorities for the complete transmission of data (for official dosimetry) in accordance with § 168 StrlSchG have expired on 28.02.2021, an assignment of employees with incomplete data to official dosimeters is no longer possible as of 01.03.2021.

Please check the completeness of the personal data.

What can be the reason if I cannot connect to the DosiNet server?

Under certain circumstances, it may be necessary for your IT department to release our server name and/or IP address in the system settings of your proxy server. You can find all information about this in our installation help.
