We would like to have a disclaimer checkbox checked before a chemist can start work on a new notebook page. The disclaimer box should include something that "All SDS pages were checked for possible dangers before starting this reaction". How can we accomplish this in E-Notebook 17.x?
E-Notebook can show a configurable confirmation dialog while performing
a transition of a collection from one state to another. For example,
you can create two states, i.e. "Open" and "SDS Verified", for your
collection type. Every time user performs transition from "Open" to
"SDS Verified", he will see a dialog with the custom message specified
by administrator. Please refer to E-Notebook
17.1 Administrator's Guide -> E-Notebook Configuration >
E-Signatures > Simple E-Signature > Authenticate
Another way is to add a new property of Type = 'Boolean', and rename
that property according to your disclaimer text, i.e. "All SDS pages
were checked for possible dangers before starting this reaction". This
will look like a checkbox next to the corresponding text. Please refer
Configuration -> Fields Types -> Data Fields ->
Creating a Property List.
However, there is no way to enforce
that checkbox to be checked, as the "Not Blank" attribute cannot be
specified for Boolean type properties.
