|Displaying additional sample fields in the assay data upload interfaces||dvlieghe||2020-01-15 08:30|
I'm in a Labkey Biologics trial, but I guess my question is general to the platform.
In the assay data upload 'interfaces' ('Upload File', 'Copy-and-Paste Data' and 'Enter Data Into Grid') of the assay runs, only Sample Id is used to characterize the samples. Is it possible to expose other Sample fields in these interfaces (even from Data Classes linked via a Lookup)? If you upload assay data via the Manage Samples menu, Sample Id's are nicely pre-populated, but only in the 'Enter Data Into Grid' interface. It would be nice if that could be extended: more fields, and also in the Excel template.
For a regular end user, computer generated Id's are very uninformative, which can lead to errors when entering/uploading data. So I was wondering whether it is possible to provide more context in the assay data upload process.
