One of the biggest challenges we’ve had with the rush of interest in StormReporter is addressing people’s reasonable wants to test StormReporter. Yes, the webinars and articles make it look good, but there’s no substitute for digging in and testing it out for yourself. We understand.
For obvious reasons we couldn’t just let everybody play with existing state StormReporter installations, which are already gathering good data (can you imagine sorting out the good data from the bogus data?). We also couldn’t just create a site where people could play with a demo site without signing in at all. StormReporter is constructed around a framework of users with different permissions and functions.
So tonight I’m happy to announce that we’ve found what we think is a good middle-ground: the StormReporter DEMO site. The StormReporter DEMO site is just a testing ground. Data won’t be backed-up or processed or even really looked at. You can test it at will to see what the site does. Create reports. Delete them. Do whatever you wish (well, within reason, please).
How do you do this? There are two steps.
- First, you’ll need a StormSmart account. If you don’t have one, click here and create one. It’s free and will take all of a minute.
- Have your account? You need to join the StormReporter DEMO group on StormSmart Connect. You’ll see the join button if you’re signed in.
That’s it! Head over to the StormReporter DEMO site, log in with your username and password and you’ll be able to take StormReporter for a spin.
