Creating a Lab Quote Manually

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A lab quote can be manually created.

There are two levels provided for manual entry of quotes - Groups and Suites (it is not considered feasible for users to enter each analyte for a Suite if entering the details manually as there would be too many and correct ChemCodes would need to be assigned for each).


If individual analytes are required for users to select for lab submission, they should be entered at the Suite level, consistent with how labs typically provide quotes in tabular format (a Group being a table, and a Suite being a row on a table).

Suites are listed under groups.
