If a core facility has enabled Protocols for their core, you will see a new setting on each service request edit page called Protocol Information. Here, you can indicate whether a user must reference an active protocol in order to initiate and complete a request for that service. (Figure 3)

When a user initiates a request for that service, they will now see a new section displayed in the service request form called Additional Information. Here, they will select which of their active protocols they would like to reference when submitting this service request. (Figure 4) 107
