RSpace Inventory Hub 🧪

RSpace Inventory is a sample and inventory management module that integrates fully with RSpace, and is currently in development with an estimated Beta release time of mid-2021.

This page contains details on how to access the alpha version, information on our development progress, and how to get involved in providing feedback and signing up to receive updates.

Access the Inventory Alpha

The Alpha version is meant to give an idea of the functionality and interface of Inventory; only a limited number of features are implemented. The Alpha instance is not suitable for real-life use, and content on the instance might be deleted. As such, please do not use the instance for real-life sample tracking.

The most recent alpha release of Inventory is available at the link below. Use the sign-up code: inventory2020 when creating a new user, and you're good to start exploring, whether on a mobile or on a desktop device! The features currently implemented are documented in the roadmap and release summary down below.

Release #3 - March 2021

In this release, we focused on improving navigation and the interface visuals!

  • A tree view, for easier navigation when you have a lot of nested items (Toggle Inventory and Container Views)
  • A card view, which shows the thumbnail image and more item details (Toggle Inventory and Container Views)
  • We added a splash of colour to the right-hand panel, to make different item types easily distinguishable (see video above!)
  • Info popups have been reworked include more useful information such as item global ID, owner, quantity for samples and subsamples, and a contents summary for containers (Navigate Inventory)
  • You can now specify and toggle the row and column labels for grid containers to be your preferred combination (Customise Axis Labels for Grid Containers)
  • Clearer status indicators when creating, editing, or viewing a deleted item
