The home page of the Sample Manager application offers a summary dashboard for getting a quick overview of your project. Return to this dashboard at any time by clicking the LabKey Sample Manager logo in the upper left corner of the page.

Note that on narrower screens, the panels of the dashboard will be stacked vertically in the following order instead of being arranged as shown above.


At a glance, see the jobs and tasks assigned to you in Your Queue. A second tab will show you other Active Jobs. Learn more about jobs and workflow in this section:
