The First Collection#

Collection View

A collection is a collection of elements (Sample, Reaction, Wellplate, Screen, Research Plan and others) that is assigned to a project or subproject. Two collections are given per default: chemotion-repository.net and All. The chemotion-repository.net collection is a connector to the chemotion repository and should not be used in the first Chemotion ELN trials. The collection All is installed as backup, it contains all entries of the Chemotion ELN independent of other assignments. The creation of the first own collection is usually the first step in the Chemotion ELN and allows to store own elements. For the creation of collections please use the collection management via the red button in the collection bar. Please create a new entry New Collection under My Collections by pressing . Please rename the collection and save it by pressing .

Caution

To use the Chemotion ELN functions, a first user-defined collection has to be created! Please think about a smart structure for your Chemotion ELN and create your first collection!
