For an Existing Publication Search, publications are returned properly based on entries in the Authors field.  

  1. Select Publications and Search Existing Publications.
  2. In Authors, type the last name of an author. For more authors, add one author's last name per line.
  3. Click Search.
  4. caNanoLab returns publications with the same Authors last name(s).

You can add up to 10 alphanumeric characters or less to accommodate postal codes worldwide. No dashes or spaces.

Added association of the publication with samples.

Removed the External ICON link from the left column.


You can Delete or Update a Composition File.

  1. Create a New Sample.
  2. Under Composition, click Add a Composition File.
  3. Click Edit. A panel for editing the composition file appears.
    1. Clicking Delete now removes the composition file.
    2. Making changes and clicking Update now saves the composition file changes.

Added an Internal link to the ISA-TAB Nano Wiki in the left column

Corrected "Physic-Chemical" on home page to "Physico-Chemical."CANANOLAB-562

Known IssueWorkaroundJIRA issue link
You cannot add multiple points of contact to one organization.  Add a division or department name to the organization's name and then add the contact to that organization.
The Results tab is populated when a curator/administrator submits a batch job to create a data availability matrix, but the tab disappears if the curator/administrator logs out and logs in again, even if the job is still running. NoneCANANOLAB-81
When submitting a new publication, clicking Reset does not reset the Submit Publication Form.NoneCANANOLAB-197
You cannot sort Protocol search results by the Protocol Type and Protocol Name columns. NoneCANANOLAB-367
You have to click the DOI external URL twice (or open the link in a new window by right-clicking) to view the external PubMed content.
A Publication Search returns more records than is valid based on the search criteria. NoneCANANOLAB-391
