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. Trees Discuss the Trees inside of Specify! Ask any questions that you have about how to use, edit, view, synonymize and merge tree nodes. 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. WorkBench Workflows The WorkBench is a powerful tool in Specify 6 and 7 for importing and modifying data. Ask questions and discuss with members and Specify staff. Data Entry This category includes all documentation involving importing data, images, files, attachments, and more!
