Are There Faster Ways to Complete Dosing Tasks?

If you are dosing many animals at a time in Data Collection, it can be cumbersome to click the check box for each animal you want dosed. A quick and easy way to do this is by clicking on the box you want to mark as done and then pressing the spacebar. Additionally, there are a couple of shortcuts to expedite the process. Here’s how they work:

Mark Dosing Tasks As Done:

1. Mark Dosing Tasks as Done allows you to mark specific dosing tasks as complete. To access this window, press [Mark Dosing Tasks As Done]



2. Check the boxes for the animals you want to mark as dosed. You can filter by groups, individual animals, cages, or cohorts.






Apply To:

Group Dosing Tasks:

To group these articles, press Options > Group Dosing Tasks.



2. Now the tasks will be displayed in a consolidated form.
