A user with the Project Manager permission for the Project can Approve or Reject Lab Reports.
Approving a Lab Report indicates the results have been reviewed and are accepted.
Rejecting a Lab Report indicates the results have been reviewed and are not acceptable. The Lab may need to be notified and Lab Report revisions requested.
A new version of a Lab Report can be imported only if the prior version has been rejected or has not yet been approved.
An approved Report can not be overwritten by a later version without specifically rejecting it to allow an overwrite.
On Approval the following informatino will be displayed (Revoke is only available to Project Managers):
Note that results from Rejected Lab Reports will still be available in Data Views, such as Chem Tables, unless they are specifically excluded using a filter. To permanently exclude this data from Data Views you can delete the Laboratory Report.
