Completing Trips in Capture are just as easy as creating one. To get started, ensure that you’ve read How to create a new Trip first.
Like with Assignments, when a Trip is created, it is in the Assigned status. The Assigned status means that a new Trip has been created but work has not begun yet. Once data is collected in the Assignment, it will move to the In Progress stage. Once you finish, you will need to Complete your Assignment.
You might also notice that your Trip has a status and its Assignments also have statuses. This is because you might like to complete your Assignments one at a time, which would mean the Trip is in progress, before finally completing the Trip once you are completely done.
Why is Completing a Trip important?
Completed is an important status for the following reasons:
- The electronic Chain of Custody will be sent to the laboratory.
- It will allow Obzervr Manager Users to perform other tasks, like running reports or performing data analytics.
