🛡️ Improved Security & Compliance

We understand the criticality of data security, and thus, we have prioritized significant security enhancements in this update, alongside vulnerability fixes. To guarantee the utmost safety of your data, we have introduced several new features:

1. Enhanced Custom Field Management: You now have the ability to provide a reason for modifying or deleting a custom field, promoting transparency and accountability in data management.

2. Logging of Export Actions: All exporting actions are now logged, allowing for effortless tracking and easy reference, ensuring a clear audit trail of data export activities.

3. Flexible IP Range Control: Our update incorporates the option to accept broad IP subnets with wildcard entries, providing more flexibility in configuring IP range controls for added security measures.

4. Improved Interface for Certified Timestamps: We have simplified the interface for managing certified timestamps, making the process more intuitive and user-friendly, ensuring efficient management of timestamps for your data.

These enhancements are aimed at strengthening the security infrastructure of LabCollector and guaranteeing the safety and integrity of your valuable data.

⚙️ Seamless Autocompletion

This latest update introduces an intelligent feature that suggests and auto-fills fields with matching names across different fields. Say goodbye to manual data entry and embrace effortless data population from one module to another.

This enhancement allows you to transfer relevant data into corresponding fields, eliminating the need for repetitive typing and reducing the chances of errors. Experience a significant boost in productivity as you accelerate your data input and retrieval processes.

✅ Swagger

Swagger was released in the previous LabCollector’s version 6.12. Today, we are excited to introduce its enhanced version in 6.15! Easily explore and test all the available API endpoints without coding, enabling you to unlock the full potential of LabCollector.

We invite you to explore our Knowledge Base. There, you’ll find detailed information and guidance on leveraging the API endpoints effectively.

🚨 Enhanced Alerts Filtering

  • With the convenience of filters, you can now effortlessly identify low inventory batches and take timely action. Apply specific filters to your alerts, enabling you to quickly spot batches with low inventory levels and ensure replenishment without hassle.
  • Furthermore, the filtering capability extends to maintenance alerts, enabling you to prioritize tasks efficiently. By filtering alerts based on the number of days overdue, you can easily focus on the most critical maintenance tasks that require immediate attention.

🔎 Improved Lots Management

  • To ensure accurate and transparent record-keeping, LabCollector now mandates providing a reason when merging lots. This feature empowers you to maintain a clear audit trail and easily trace the rationale behind lot mergers, enhancing compliance and accountability.
  • With the ability to merge lots, you can consolidate associated comments, which helps eliminate redundancy. This simplifies data interpretation and allows for a more comprehensive understanding of your batch history.
  • When exporting lot data, LabCollector now includes custom fields, providing a complete dataset that encompasses all relevant information.
  • Efficient disposal filtering is now at your fingertips, allowing you to filter the disposal list by product name and lot reference. This allows you to easily identify specific lots for disposal and help maintain an organized inventory.
  • LabCollector also introduces project creation for destocking lots and tracking chemical consumption for better organization.
