Linking a Document to a Sample

Q: “Is there any way to associate a scanned SDS (or other digital document) with a logged-in sample? I’m hoping we could query based on sample ID and then access the scanned document via a clickable link somehow.”

A: You can use the Document field on either results entry screen (use Show Sample button on results by analyte) to link any external file to the sample. Use the Edit Hyperlink button adjacent to the Document field or right-click the field for options. If you need to link more than one document to a sample, just link a container document such as a Word file where you add links to multiple files. A linked document is intended for lab use only so it is not sent or automatically attached to any final report.

You will also find linked Document fields on the Methods, Instruments, and Customers (contact history) setup screens.
