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 email@example.com.
You may elect to have location information (i.e. all data fields in the Location tab of EDGE) exported to the eCOC. To do so:
1.Click the application menu (round icon in upper left corner of EDGE).
3.Set COC > Include Location Information in COC & eCOC to "True". Note that a brief comment appears at the bottom of the Options panel.
