Hi all,

Is there a way making it mandatory for users to assign location codes when approving lab reports? We have the issue of users constantly approving data without assigning location_codes resulting in many projects with lab data but no locations

There isn't a way to set that as a requirement before lab reports are approved. 

However this may be part of a larger issue, ideally there would be a list of items (which may vary by project) that staff should do before approving a lab report, and assigning locations will be one of those.  However there isn't a way to require that is followed within the software.

Another approach is that if the Locations are already in the system at a Site assocated with the Lab Reports' Project and your lab samples have a Field ID that matches one at http://ESdat.net/ESdat_Server_Help/sample_field_ids_labreports.htm then the Location will be automatically assigned.  This is the best approach as it is the easiest and doesn't require staff spend time doing it manually.
