In my last post, I was talking about how I’d considering rejoining some of the groups I’d left, such as the LinkedIn LabWare LIMS group and the LinkedIn SampleManager group. I do sometimes wish there was a place for experts to get a quick answer but I realize that rejoining these groups won’t satisfy this desire.
Instead, I have decided to devote a tiny amount of energy toward helping others. While I tend to avoid giving product-specific tips, I decided to break that rule in order to share some tips with others. Today’s product – LabWare LIMS / ELN.
To those of you experts out there, you know there are things that people SHOULD know but don’t. There are certain issues and questions that tend to come up too regularly. With that in-mind, I thought if each person who sees this could share one good tip that it would help those out there who are on their own build better systems through better basic understanding.
Rather than getting into specific modules, such as the ELN, Stability Manager, or the like, the plan here is to try to give tips that are so basic that they can apply anywhere in the system.
To those who would read this, keep in-mind that this is not a support site. These tips are merely meant as potentially a useful collection of extra tips. All support should remain with the LabWare discussion groups or your consulting company’s internal discussion help groups.
I will begin with the first tip as a comment to this post but I welcome tips from all others who wish to share and encourage it. We complain so much about the silly things we see in the LIMS Basic and configurations, lets help others instead of complaining about them.
