ForneyField | Sample Copy feature

ForneyField mobile app allows users to Copy an existing Sample. Use the Copy feature to efficiently and quickly create new samples and reduce data entry time.

Why It's Important

Field technicians must create many samples during the day, and these samples are often very similar.  With Sample Copy, field techs can easily re-use existing similar samples.  Sample Copy improves data capture efficiency and accuracy.

From the Samples->Samples List screen, search for the sample you want to copy . The Copy button is displayed in the bottom left of the sample record, as shown by the red arrow in the following picture. Tap on the Copy button to copy that sample.  


The Add Sample screen will display with pre-filled values from the copied sample. Sample Copy includes 31 data fields.  You must provide a new Sample Number and Sample Date and Time.  Be sure to review edit and add any other necessary data. You can then tap on the top-right Continue link to Add Sets & Specimens.

Add Sample "Continue" opens the Add Sets & Specimens screen, which automatically populates with set and specimen data from the previously entered set. You can use these default values or make edits. List your specimens by break age (in days) and delimit with commas. Use "H" or "h" to indicate a hold set. 

Tap on the Create Samples &  Set(s) button to complete sample and set creation.  The sets will be named according to the break age value.

Select the Create Sample With No Set  link if you don't want to create sets and specimens at that time. You can add sets later from the Manage Sample screen.

The example set list (7,28,28,56,H) will create 4 sets and 5 Cube specimens where H is a hold set:

Set Name # of Specimens Age to Break Specimen Type
7 1 7 days Cube
28 2 28 days Cube
56 1 56 days Cube
H 1 N/A - Hold set Cube


Please note that the Add Sets & Specimens screen supports a single specimen type. If your sample includes multiple specimen types, you can add more sets of different types from the Manage Sample screen. Please refer to the article on Add Sets & Specimens by list for more information.
