How to fill in the form to define a new storage:

  1. Code. It is advisable to provide a meaningful code for the storage, rather than using the default, because this information is needed when registering storage positions in Batch mode. For example MINUS80_ROOM_A1
  2. Name. The name is what is shown in most parts of the ELN. E.g. Minus 80°C in Room A1
  3. Number of rows. This is the number of shelves.
  4. Number of columns. This is the number of racks per shelf.
  5. Allowed number of boxes in a rack. This is the maximum number per rack. Enter a very high number if this is not important.
  6. Rack space warning. Enter space as percentage. E.g. 80, means that the system will give a warning when 80% of a rack is occupied.
  7. Box space warning. Enter space as percentage. E.g. 80, means that the system will give a warning when 80% of a box is occupied.
  8. Validation level. This is the minimum level of information required about the storage:
    1. Rack validation. The position in the shelf and rack needs to be specified.
    2. Box validation. In addition to a, a box name needs to be specified.
    3. Box position validation. In addition to a and b, the position in the box needs to be specified.
