The Navigation bar appears on the left side, giving access to different navigation groups and within each group you can access a collection of screens.
For example, for the Collection group you have the screens:
• Accessions • Item management • Localities • Projects • Inbox
The menu and the toolbar at the top of the application window are used to perform actions relevant to the active screen.
After selecting a screen (Accessions in the example above), data fields (white boxes) appear ready to receive data. By clicking on the different tabs in the screen, Details, Items, Parentage, Images and References, you are able to access and update further information about the accession.
Searchable fields are labelled with a small circle [°] (exact match) or tilde [~] (starts with). Searches can be performed by the values entered in the fields to retrieve lists of information held in the database.
The yellow fields at the top of the screen are Express Search fields. In Taxon name field, try typing “Tri sim” instead of “Trillium simile”, or in the Accession field, try typing 11-4 instead of 1911-0004.
