Here are the latest updates to the Order-Requests module:
- Rearrangement of the form: We've rearranged the order-request form so that mandatory fields are all along the left. This ensures that you can quickly fill the mandatory fields and submit the order request.
- "Required by" is now optional: This tweak was requested by many people. Some labs want the lab-admin to set the default option here and that is something we may develop in the future.
- "Requested by:" Admins can now place requests on behalf of other members. The use-case is that a PI (or other members) may prefer to communicate order-requests as they've done in the past. The lab-manager can then enter the order-requests on their behalf thus allowing them to track the status of the order on Quartzy.
Updates to Groups:
- Time-zone set at Group-level: Previously, each piece of equipment in a Group could have its own time-zone and due to an occasional entry-error by members while adding new equipment labs would have a situation where some instruments were in an incorrect/different time-zone. This led to incorrect sign-up reminder emails etc. We've resolved this by allowing Admins to set the time-zone once for the entire group. This time-zone will be the time-zone for all the shared equipment in that Group. To change/edit the time-zone for your Group please click the Groups tab and click 'Edit' against the name of the Group.
