Specify Documentation


Forms A form is a window in which data can be viewed, entered, or edited. Specify categorizes forms as Data forms, which are used to enter collection data, and Interactions, which are used to record transactions of either data or collection objects. Each discipline has access to a set of forms for both data and interactions, specific to their discipline. Interactions Interactions in Specify allow users to create and manage documentation associated with the movement of specimens or data into or outside of the collection. This includes information about loans, gifts, borrowed items, permits, shipments, accessions, disposals, deaccessions and information requests. Query Building This category is all about queries, building queries, and exporting them. This encompasses Schema mapping and DwCA definition exports. Trees Discuss the Trees inside of Specify! Ask any questions that you have about how to use, edit, view, synonymize and merge tree nodes. Data Entry This category includes all documentation involving importing data, images, files, attachments, and more!
