Like most tables in BSI, the Requisitions Editor displays information in a spreadsheet-like format. Each specimen is represented by a row in the editor. The columns in the editor display sample and specimen fields.
As with other tables in BSI, columns can be rearranged, hidden or shown and sorted. The data view of columns can be changed individually by column or all columns in the editor can be changed by selecting the Set all columns to data view or Set all columns to format view option from the View menu.
The current view of the requisition is saved. The same column order and sort will be displayed the next time the requisition is opened by any user. Users can save a default requisition view that is saved between sessions.
Special Columns in the Requisitions Editor - Some columns that display specimen and sample data are unique to the Requisitions Editor, such as Volume Remaining per Group and Number of Specimen Remaining per Group. These are available to assist with choosing the proper specimens for the inclusion and processing of the requisition. The Parent ID field is also unique in the requisition and does not correspond to the Parent Id field in the specimen table. See Special Columns in the Requisition Editor for a detailed description of these fields.
Task Columns - Task columns can display various information about the task depending upon the view option selected. Tasks are edited and processed by selecting options from the task's column header menu. A separate column exists in the Requisitions Editor for each task added.
