Creating New Samples
Create new samples one-by-one from within the system
To add a one-off sample (rather than importing a list of samples), go into the Sample Manager and click the “Create Sample” button in the top right corner.
All sample details with a red asterisk * are required fields.
You can select from existing sample details (e.g. Designer) by choosing from the drop-down, or you can select the plus sign (+) icon to add a new entry to that sample detail (i.e. a new Designer not previously in your system).
Checking the box marked “Print Sample Barcode” will cause the new sample’s barcode to print as soon as you finish creating it. If you choose to add an image to the sample, you have three options available in the upper right corner of the screen: “Multiple” will use Java to search for all images in your computer and allow you to select multiple items to upload at a time. “Single” will allow you to browse all documents in your computer and select the correct image file to upload. “Capture” will allow you to take an image with your computer’s camera and add that as the sample image.
When uploading an image, make sure that it is a JPG file and not too large (under 2MB) in order to speed up the process.
NOTE: To add samples in bulk, please see the “Adding Multiple Samples" article.
NOTE: If you are using special characters such as !, @,#,$,%,^,&,*, <, > please read the following support center article on Using Special Characters.
