An electronic Chain of Custody (eCOC) can be exported directly from EDGE and sent to a laboratory for adoption into its LIMS.


In the COC Manager, select a COC and the appropriate Lab. Then click the eCOC button to export the eCOC.




The types of eCOC that may be exported are:


1.eCOC (Excel) - exports to Excel for easier review of the eCOC for accuracy.

2.eCOC (XML) - the official eCOC that may be sent to labs.


The EDGE eCOC has specific mapping specifications. A mapping document is available for download from the EarthSoft Community Center (ECC) Downloads Dashboard. If you have registered for the ECC, go to All Items > Products > EDGE, click on the latest version, and select the "eCOC_Mapping_x.x.x.xlsx document." If the file is not visible, please contact EarthSoft Support.

2.Select Options.

3.Set COC > Include Location Information in COC & eCOC to "True".  Note that a brief comment appears at the bottom of the Options panel.
