Create a custom sample attribute
Custom sample attributes, which are a type of sample preset, allow you to add various kinds of pertinent metadata information to your samples.
Do not create a custom sample attribute that has the same name as a predefined sample attribute.
- In the Samples tab, click Presets.
- Click Create Preset, then select the data type of the preset that you want to create.
- Based on the data type of the preset, complete the preset dialog box:
- Click Save.
Ensure that the new preset is available in Ion Reporter™ Software.
In the Samples tab, click Presets to view the new sample attribute preset in the Sample Presets table. You can select a sample attribute that is listed in the Sample Presets table to view details that describe the sample attribute in the Details pane.
To add the custom attribute to a sample, edit the attributes for the sample when you define the sample. For more information, see Define a sample manually.
