What’s New in Freezerworks




Introduced in 2019

A New Way to Begin

Homepages are the jumping-off point for the tiled actions you use the most. This configurable addition lowers the cost of onboarding by allowing novice and advanced users to access the data and functionality in Freezerworks with ease. We realize that one size doesn’t always fit all so users have the ability to create personal Homepages and fine-tune their Freezerworks experience.

Freezerworks Workflow Templates Keep Getting Better

Our latest iteration of Freezerworks has twelve workflow actions that allow you to order tests, create sub-aliquots, email reports, print labels, enforce SOPs, and save time. Your organization will benefit from templates that can now target both Parent and Sub-Aliquots. Lastly, we’ve added four new Aliquot Status options, Depleted, Destroyed, Disposed, and Lost. These additions help describe the end state of items in your inventories more accurately.

Save Time with Simplified Sample Security

Starting in Freezerworks 2019 Samples are owned by Groups. This will make transferring ownership when someone leaves or joins the organization quicker than ever and reduces the chances of manual error.

 

 

A More Visual Freezer

With the release of Freezerworks 2019, we’ve introduced Visual Freezers, which is comprised of dynamic interfaces for Aliquots Entry, Configure Freezers, Explore Freezers, and Move Aliquots. Configure your freezers to better reflect the reality you see in your facilities and interact with your inventory without the drag of abstraction. Make the right choices for your organization in less time with the new Freezer Capacity functionality. Get real-time usage data for your boxes, racks, shelves, and freezers. Box consolidation with drag and drop moves is a delight, and managing inventory in structured and unstructured freezers has never been easier.

On the Move

Cue up changes by dragging and dropping aliquots, boxes, and racks to the new Freezerworks Workbench. This new tool makes freezer migrations and recovering from freezer failure less stressful by handling exceptions on the fly.

Roles

Assign Users to roles for quick permission privilegesWe are always on the lookout for ways to lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for our customers. With the addition of Roles to Freezerworks, user provisioning will be quicker and more accurate. You will be able to bundle permission settings together and assign them to multiple Users, i.e. no more checking on and off boxes for each user. You are able to assign a single User multiple Roles, which they will select from when logging in (much like Group Profiles). This enhances security, as your system administrator may not want all of their privileges when working day-to-day in Freezerworks. In order to get new installations up and running quickly both the "System Administrator" and "Accessioning and Inventory" Roles are created for you but should your system require a more granular permission scheme the power is in your hands to create new Roles.

Email Integration

Increase laboratory management by connecting your email to Freezerworks Email is probably still an integral part of your workday so we've added the ability to automatically send emails from Freezerworks when Requisition processes, Workflows, and Scheduled Searches are run. Individual emails can have Freezerworks Reports and/or Exports attached automatically. Since this is Freezerworks you can include your organization's logo and/or slogan in the footer of all emails sent from your system.

New Field Types and Field Properties

We have added more field types and properties to increase the overall functional power of Freezerworks:

Multi-Select Choice List

Multi-Select List field for samples, aliquots, and patients added to Freezerworks 2017 We're putting more choices and more power in your hands with the Multi-Select Choice List field. Upon click, the field opens a small list box of possible choices, which you check on or off for multiple different selections.



Auto & Read Only

Automatic and Read Only checkbox allows values to be automatically set and not editable by the user These fields are set up like Default Values, but when triggered they become 'read only.' This allows you to set up automatic values that cannot be edited. In this version this feature works for records created manually and automatically.



Required Based on Value of another Field

checkbox added that requires value entry if the value of another field is something that was specified If you check on this field property, you can define scenarios where this field automatically requires entry before the record you're working in can be saved. Like Default Values once again, you select another field and determine the value, values, or range of values that will make your field required.



URL Link

Add a URL Link to entry forms We have added the option for Calculated Fields to be treated as hyperlinks, so that calculations that create valid webpage names can be used as such. If you check on URL Link while configuring your calculated field, a clickable icon will appear to the right of said field whenever it appears on entry forms; clicking the icon will automatically open your default browser to the designated webpage.



Sum Field

Improve workflow efficiency with the new Sum field type A powerful compliment to Count Fields that tells you how much of a a given set of aliquots you have on hand.
