how do I print cage cards?
STEP 1: From the core's homepage, click on Animal Services. (Figure 1)
STEP 2: Click on Manage Cage Card Requests. (Figure 2)
You will automatically be taken to your core’s pending cage card requests.
NOTE: To filter your pending requests and narrow the choices, use the filters along the top. (Figure 3)
STEP 3: Select the cards you would like to print.
Click the box beside the cage cards you would like to print, then click the blue Print button. (Figure 4)
STEP 4: Define the printing parameters. (Figure 5)
File format - for now, we are supporting PDF as the only cage card file format option. This will generate a PDF file of cage cards that can be sent to a printer that can handle our current cage card format.
Sort By - options included here are:
Date Needed (when the cage cards need to be printed by)
Cage Card (Cage Card ID #)
Type (Cage Type - Order, for Approved and Non-Approved Sources; Breeding; Weaning)
Order ID (iLab Request ID)
Request ID (iLab Request ID)
- Activate upon generation? - This will allow the animal facility to decide whether they want corresponding cage records to be automatically activated once the cage cards are printed.
STEP 5: Download the cage cards.
Once you have defined your printing parameters, click Download. (Figure 6)
Your cage cards will display on the screen. Use your operating system’s print commands to print. (Figure 7)
Once a Cage Card Request has been printed, this will automatically generate a new Cage Record.
