how do i manage non-approved sources?

Within the order workflow, the requester will select the name of the external “source” from which they wish to order animals. In this workflow, a source typically represents a collaborator’s academic institution or a commercial vendor who is not considered an “approved” supplier of animals at the user’s particular core/institution.

Source is a drop-down field in the non-approved sources order form. Values for Source names can be pre-populated by defining them at Core Administration tab → Manage non-approved sources.  (Figure 1)
