MetaField Training Center

Users can now access in-app help resources and new feature walkthroughs


We are excited to announce the official launch of MetaField Training Center. This version introduces two new feathers to all users: Help Desk and What's New.

Help Desk allows users to search for in-app help resources from any page of MetaField. To try it out, click the Help Desk on the right side of your screen.

What's New informs users on the latest product news, including interactive walkthroughs for new features. Click What's New on your home page (for desktop users) or within the Help Desk.

This is just the beginning for Training Center. In the coming months, we'll bring additional content  and interactive training guides to transform how users learn and engage with MetaField. If you have any questions or feedback, please reach out to your Customer Success Representative.


Sample form columns can be configured for view in Other Materials Work Queues


Users can now configure the data grids in the Other Materials Work Queues section of the LIMS module to display custom columns designated for each Sample forms. To configure this new functionality, open any form found in Administration > LIMS / Samples > Sample Forms in the Form Designer and add the new LIMS Search Results setting from the Form Settings dialog. Once this setting is added, the Other Materials Work Queues data grids will show the custom columns when filtered to the appropriate Sample Type.

PM Dashboard

Updated Navigation


In order to reduce clicks when navigating to MetaField modules, the left nav bar on the PM Dashboard now includes sub navigation options when appropriate. For example, users can now navigate directly to Quality Control Activity rather than first navigating to the Quality Control and then selecting from a variety of menu options to get to their final destination.
