How do I create alerts for chemical and equipment?

You are here:
← All Topics

Go to Admin >> Preferences >> Alerts and change the settings as required.

Reagents and Supplies alerts:

 

1. You can use the validity alert for reagents. You must define the number of days before the expiry date of the product to use as a threshold. There is also an option to keep expired products on the alert list.

2. For quantity alerts, you can choose to check the “Use the SUM of all lots”. In this case, when the stock total amount is less than the product threshold, an alert will be activated. Otherwise, any single lot with a quantity lower than the threshold will raise the alert.
NOTE: This threshold must be defined to create alerts

3. When finished click on “Update Alert Options”.

Equipment Maintenance alerts:

2. If you want to use this alert function, you have to define the maintenance frequency through Admin > Preferences > Equipment Categories.

3. An alert based on the waiting time for delivery after ordering can be activated. You must define the number of days required for an alert.
