To add a field in which you can link data file or images, choose the file attachment field

After saving the field, a field with an upload button is created that allows you to link file attachments to a sample. Note that you can attach more than one file in the same field.

For file attachment fields the following field options are supported:

  • Required field – check this option to make data entry required prior storing a sample
  • Display image setting – check this option to display images that are linked to a sample
  • Note field – information for end-user displayed in the tooltip balloon

Input Validation

Use Validate input to set validation for the type of files that can be uploaded for instance only PDF, image files, office files. Validate for other file types with the custom file validation option by entering the file extension as *.txt. (use a comma to separate multiple values)


Use the checkbox "Display if contains images (jpg, gif and png) or plasmid files (gb)" to show uploaded images in when viewing a sample sheet.
