To streamline logistic processes in the laboratory, eLABInventory sends notifications about important events. Notifications are sent for the following events
- Sign and Counter-Signing – the witness receives a request to counter-sign an experiment while the author receives a notification when the experiment has been approved or declined.
- Items running out of stock – when the number of aliquots or batches in a sample series runs below the threshold, a notification is sent to the owner.
- System messages – system messages are sent to all users to notify them of important events such as major updates.
When a notification is sent, it appears as a small message in the right lower corner when logged in the eLABInventory application. Note that if you install the eLABInventory Mobile App, you will also be able to receive notifications on your smart phone or tablet to be informed instantly when a notification is sent.
To see a history of all incoming notification, you can open your inbox from the logged in bar.
In the notification inbox you can select all messages to mark them as read or to delete them from your inbox. Note that only the 25 most recent notifications are displayed.
