Future feature: booking instruments

Next year's planned work includes a calendar with time slots for the lab instruments, e.g. Aktas.

Relevant activities seem to be:

  • Reserve instrument time
  • Plan experiments
  • Record experiments
  • Cancel instrument booking, or update start or end time

Useful software features seem to be:

  • View of calendar, optionally filtered by instrument type (e.g. purification columns)
  • Reserve a time slot, and later plan experiments
  • Plan experiment, and later assign it to a time slot
  • Delete or edit a time slot

Can anyone improve this plan?

Future work includes adding the ability to navigate from the calendar entry, to files saved on that instrument at that time.

Dear Chris,

 

I have been using (since 2008) the OCF Scheduler from the ARL Division of Biotechnology, University of Arizona. It has a lot of nice features but lacks some other that I have beem missing over the years. If you welcome my input I can prepare a document on this to help you by having a administrator and user feedback.

Let me know.

All the best,

 

Frederico

I just saw your comment. Yes, it would be great to have your input! I expect to implement this feature later this year.
