Question:

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?

Answer:

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 Transition Listener.

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 to E-Notebook 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.
