Moving multiple tags from the Unallocated Tag List into Stockbook
I have animals in my unallocated tag list that I want to bring into Stockbook. How can I do this?
View Unallocated Tag List
Click on Electronic ID > Unallocated Tag List menu option.
This screen shows a list of all unallocated tags that have been entered into Stockbook.
These have been saved from the EID link from Reader/Tag Bucket (i.e. by (1) transferring a list of EID's that you have saved in your Reader, directly into Stockbook and then assigning a visual Id to each uploaded EID's or (2) importing a tag bucket file given to you by your tag suppier or from the NLIS database) screen.
An unallocated tag is normally a tag linked to an electronic Id., that represents an animal not yet entered into Stockbook.
Add Unallocated Tags (ID's) into Stockbook:
Click on the Animals toolbar icon.
Down the bottom of the main Animal screen Click on the Mulit-Add button.
Click the Unallocated Tags option in Assign Ids. by box.
You will be presented with a list of all pending new animals. The Primary Ids. shown represent tags that have been cross-referenced to an electronic Id. but have not yet been placed on file as animals.
Select the tags for which you want to create animals:
A green background means that you have selected an animal.
Click on the Select All button to select all tags in the list.
To select tags in a contiguous group, click on the first tag in the group, hold down the Shift key and then click on the last tag in the group.
To select (or deselect) individual tags, hold down the Ctrl key and click on the tag/s you require.
Click on the Back ..... button to return to the Multiple Animal Addition window and enter the remaining animal details.
Enter any information about these animals that you would like to bring in with the new IDs.
Click on the OK button.
Click Yes to Confirm message: ' Are you sure that you want to add 18 selected animals?'
Click OK to Information message: ' Multi-add complete. Click on Cancel to exit, or you can enter new data.'
These animals have now been added to your Animals list and removed from your Unallocated Tag List.
