Document Management Overview
Any documents, including SOPs, MSDSs, Methods, Orders, Maintenance receipts, etc. can be uploaded to the LIMS and accessed in the Document Management screen. This can also help you keep track of ISO, CFR, GLP/GCLP, CLIA, HIPAA, CAP, CLSI and other standards, regulations and guidelines, helping you stay compliant.
To View or Edit Documents
Navigate to the Document Management or Document Recording Management menu item.
The LabLynx LIMS displays the list of documents currently tracked in the system. You can use the Filter button to quickly locate specific items.
To view document details or the document itself, click the File Name link. You can view or edit the file itself by clicking its link. Changed files are automatically versioned by the system, with audit trail, and revision date and number automatically stored. Initial files are assigned Version 0.
You can edit the Document details, change the name, select the new document type, upload a new revision or change Active status. If you upload a new document without changing the name, the revision is updated and previous version is inactivated (upon confirmation popup). The Save button becomes enabled. Click to save.

Click Save when you are finished. If you upload a new document with the same name as an existing one, the revision is updated and previous version is inactivated (upon confirmation popup). Changed files are automatically versioned by the system, with audit trail, and revision date and number automatically stored. Initial files are assigned Version 0.
