The main menu is the jumping off point for limsExpress. From here you can log in, log out and see the current user. It also provides a single place to scan in our custom Express-Code. The four tabs on the form provide links to all of your data. In the lower portion of the form the version number and registered user name appear.
When the program first opens you will see a login box, just select your name from the list, enter your password and press the ‘Login to limsExpress’ button. The program is designed so it work well in a shared PC environment. You are able to change users within the program without having to exit. You will notice that the current user name is shown.
Any time a different user needs to enter data they would just press the ‘Change User’ button and go through the login process again. If you are currently logged in and you are leaving the area just press the ‘Log Out’ button, this will log you out but leave it open for the next user.
In the upper left you will find the Express-Code field, this a unique feature we have incorporated in to limsExpress. You can scan the Express-Code from sample, MSDS, inventory, maintenance, etc. into this one location and because of our special coding it will open the correct type of form to the specific record. This saves time and typing errors.
