Other Help Materials that were also posted on the "BCH on BCH Forum”:


File  Description
 How_to_SEARCH_in_new_BCH.pdf  Graphical representation of the new SEARCH interface.
 How to use Date filter.pdf  Simple test that describes how to filter by Date Range (i.e. "Custom Range"). The test is for all BCH users.


Purpose  of the test:

1) To test creation, submission of and searching for “Organisms” and “Genetic Elements” records. 

2) To familiarize with and test the general workflow of publishing records, specifically, the REJECTION and APPROVAL process. How do you know when your record is approved and how do you know when it was rejected and why. REJECTION means “request for changes”. 

The file contains 3 tests. Test #1 and Test #2 are for all BCH users. Test #3 is for NAUs, CPB and BCH Focal Points.
