If you don’t know about our LabCollector ListMaker App yet, then here’s a short description:

ListMaker provides a quick generic list making service to be used by our LabCollector. It can easily create a template with multiple column types including text, number, barcode, location and date. Data entry is really fast and simple in this application and you can send the file via Email.

LabCollector ListMaker is available for Android devices on the Google Play Store.


Getting started with LabCollector ListMaker:

When you first install LabCollector ListMaker you need to do some configuration. On the top left corner of the home page, you can find the menu bar and follow one simple step under Settings.

A. Configure email: Enter the email address where you want to receive your list.

After this configuration is done you need to create the template that you will use for your list.

B. Manage Templates:

In this section you have different features:

Add

1. Click to add a new template.
2. Enter the name of your template.
3. Click on “Confirm” to save and create the template.

Edit
1. Select the template that you have created and click on “Edit”.
2. Once the template editor is open you have to select the type of separator for the columns: semicolon (;) or colon (,) or TAB.
3. Click on “New Column” to add a column.
4. Enter the name of your column and select the type (string, numeric, datetime, date, time, barcode, latitude, longitude).
Note: date-time, date, time, latitude, longitude are read-only fields. The app automatically takes/saves them and they can’t be edited by the user.
5. Click on save.

Repeat steps 3 – 5 to create as many columns as needed for your template.

Inside the Template Editor, you can easily Edit or Delete one column just by selecting the column and clicking on the corresponding option. Always remember to click on Save after any change.

Now, you’re ready to start adding data to your list!
