CDD Vault Update (September 2019): Filter ELN Entries and Reference Reaction Stoichiometry Table Data In Text

CDD Vault Update Logo

British-American author, Patrick Ness, wrote that “A man without a filter, is chaos walking”.
This CDD Vault ELN release helps avoid such chaos with the introduction of new ELN filtering capabilities.

CDD Vault ELN users may now filter their ELN entries from the main ELN tab using the values populated within the default ELN elements: ID, Author, Title, Status, and Witness (if enabled). To filter your entries based on these ELN elements, click the new “filter” icon ( Image of ELN filter button ) in the main ELN tab .

Click the “Add Filter” button to see the list of ELN elements available to you for filtering – select the element(s) and operator(s) you wish to use, populate your filter terms, and click the green search icon.

Click “Add Filter” to open list of filterable ELN elements. Select desired filters then click the green search icon.

 Additional filters may be added by clicking the “Add Filter” button again and repeating the process outlined above.  Whenever filters are currently applied to your list of ELN entries, you will see indications of which filters are active just below the search box. Note that each blue-shaded box is clickable, in case you need to modify your current filter.

Click the add filter button again to select further filters. Currently applied filters are conveniently displayed below the search bar.

 Of course, these ELN filters may be used in conjunction with the existing keyword and chemical structure searching features already available in the ELN.

CDD Vault ELN users may now filter their ELN entries from the main ELN tab using the values populated within the default ELN elements: ID, Author, Title, Status, and Witness (if enabled). To filter your entries based on these ELN elements, click the new “filter” icon ( ) in the main ELN tab. 

The first step in using this time-saving insert feature is to create a reaction and stoichiometry table in your ELN entry.

Use “insert link” to easily insert ELN reaction and stoichiometry table components into your text.

 Once you have a reaction, the individual components of the stoichiometry table are available for inserting into your ELN text. For example, you could pull values from the above stoichiometric table directly into text, as demonstrated below where the values in blue were inserted directly from the stoichiometry table.

The references shown above in blue text are inserted directly from the stoichiometry table and will automatically update as you edit your stoichiometric table.
