Adding Sets & Specimens as a list is an efficient and accurate method to capture data in the field. The feature also conveniently defaults to previously used values. The list feature eliminates extra steps to add sets when creating a sample.
Why It's Important
Field technicians must create many samples during the day and need to work rapidly. Adding Sets & Specimens as a list is quick and accurate.
How it Works
The Add Sample screens display a Continue link in the top-right menu. After entering or editing your sample data, tap Continue to open the Add Sets & Specimens screen.
You can now edit or enter values for:
- Specimen type (Note: One specimen type may be chosen on this screen)
- Default specimen
- Expected strength
- List of specimens by set break age (where age is in days)
Values in "List of specimens by set break age" should be comma-separated. Use H or h to indicate a hold set.
If you have previously added sample sets and specimens, this screen will automatically provide suggested default values. The app remembers the values for the last sets and specimens you created. These default values will automatically populate in the screen.
Users can also skip adding sets and specimens and add them later from the Manage Sample screen.
The "Add Sample" screen displays a Continue link in the top-right, whether adding a new sample or copying an existing sample.
Tap on Continue to go to the Add Sets & Specimens screen. You have the option to Create Samples & Sets or Create Sample With No Set. You can add sets and specimens later from the Manage Sample screen. You can use default values that the app remembers from the previously entered sets or enter new values. This screen allows you to create sets of a single specimen type. If your set has multiple specimen types, you can manually add more sets of other types using the Manage Sample screen.
This specification created and named 4 sets with 8 beam specimens according to break age days. The H set is the hold set. The set break ages reflect the age provided in the list. Sets and Specimens created for the list (7,7,7,28,28,28,56,h) are as follows:
|Set Name||Number of Specimens||Age to Break||Specimen Type|
|H||1||n/a - Hold Set||Beam|
Tap on "Create Sample & Set(s)" will then open the sample and sets in the "Manage Sample" screen. You can now perform edits as needed or add more sets of different specimen types.
