To add a field that links to a project in eLabJournal, choose Project ID Reference from the Field type dropdown.

After saving the field, a dropdown menu containing a list of the group's project IDs is created for associating the sample with a specific project. 

The following field options are supported for project ID reference fields:

  • Required field – makes data entry required prior to storing a sample
  • Note field – field information for end user displayed in a tooltip balloon
  • Default value – field is filled with the default value if none is provided on sample creation
