Enter Data > Data Entry

It will bring you to a page where you can choose what collection to enter data into.

Select the collection you need in the drop down menu under “Begin at…” and click the blue “Enter Data” button next to it.

You should be brought to the page that lets you enter data.

Note that the background should be green. If it is not, for some reason Arctos will not let you save your data. To get a green screen try using different browsers. For instance, I can only enter data when using Google Chrome while the lab computer works using Internet Explorer.
