Data Entry form
This document applies to the built-in single-record data entry form.
The form has been customized for various collections and collection types. This documentation may not apply to your workflow.
Required fields - usually at the request of a collection or group of collections - are yellow.
Click Customize Form to add or remove fields, or to set field behavior. Field options are:
- Hide: The field will not be accessible on the form.
- Show: The field will be available on the form, and new records will load with blank values.
- Carry: The field will be available on the form, and new records will load with values from the previous record.
Turn the calendar pick off and on. Calendars may interfere with date formats other than to day (YYYY-MM-DD). Most fields are ISO8601 format and will accept more (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSTZ) or less (YYYY) precision.
Enable to allow dragging field groups on the page. Disable to lock. Reset Default Sort to reset fieldset ordering.
Documentation links are provided for all nodes. All users should be familiar with documentation.
Locality and Event picks
Providing a locality ID overrides all other locality information at load. Providing an event ID overrides all locality and event information at load. Search/pick tools are provided, or enter an ID and TAB to autoselect.
Enter geography and specific locality information then click GeoLocate to automatically georeference.
Errors will be displayed at the bottom of the page. Most errors are accompanied by a summary popup notification and field coloring.
The “copy2all” links copy the data from the associated field to all fields using similar data - all agents or dates, for example.
Enter a valid scientific name (not necessarily taxon name - see /documentation/bulkloader.html#taxonomy), or click “build” for a helpful tool.
