Registering from the Submission page

    Submissions from the Staging area or from the Upload summary can be opened on the Submission correction page, from where, after getting registrar's attention, can be again sent for registration by clicking the [Register] button. From the Submission page Advanced type registrations are started.

    {info} Since version 19.20.0 submissions are auto-saved if users hit the "Register" button. For example, if you do a structure modification on the submission page, but there is still a validation error with e.g the LnbRef and you click Register your change will be saved (like with the More actions - Save functionality).

    For each submission a status bar indicates an error (according to the configured workflow steps).


    | Status message on the Submission page

    By clicking in the structure area all structural errors will be listed below the structure.


    | All structural errors are listed below the structure

    {primary} Errors that have a configured automated fix are also listed here.

    {info} Since version 23.2.0-2303302138 the status on the Submission page besides one error will contain a link to all the structural errors in case if only structural errors are present for the given compound. In the status only the structural errors are referred that have no automatic fix configured.


    | Extended status message with link to the all the structural errors (since version 23.2.0-2303302138)

    {info} Since version 23.12.0 the errors with and without configured fixers are differentiated in the section below the structure editor. The errors with configured fixers are greyed out and tooltips are visible now for all configured checkers.

    {note} Configured fixers might not work for certain structures, for more info please check in the checkers list. Therefore, it might happen, that a manual fix is needed even when a fix is configured.

    Actions available from the Submission page:


    Structural and/or data modifications can be performed, and the changes can be saved without having the submission registered. For this just use the Save functionality.

    Saving from the Submission page

    Show history

    Since version 19.20.0 when a submission is created, a History page (Figure Submission History) contains all the structural changes that were applied to the drawn structure.

    Showing the history on the Submission page

    If no changes are to be applied to the drawn structure, the saved and drawn structure images are the same and the report contains the following (Figure Submission History with no changes):

    • Structure was not modified by Standardization

    • Structure was not modified by Structure Checker Fixers

    • Structure Checker warnings were not found (since version 21.20.0)

    Submission History for a record that was not changed

    The changes, if any, are found in the "Saved structure" image, which is different from the "Drawn structure" and are found in a report in three different sections (Figure Submission History with changes):

    • Applied Standardizer Actions

    • Applied Structure Checker fixers actions

    • Remaining Structure Checker warnings (since version 21.20.0)

    The desired standardization/normalization rules and structure checkers should be pre-configured on the Administration/Chemistry/Standardizer and Structure checker pages.

    {primary} The Structure Checker Report is being calculated in the StructureCheckerValidator workflow step. If you want to have them in your history, you have to include them in your workflows. Based on the location of the validator in the workflow the validators will run in the order they appear on the Administration page > Workflow > Workflow steps. If your Compound Registration version is older than 20.8.0, you need to restart the server in order to have the changed workflow steps applied.

    E.g: If you want to see Structure Checker Report when a Registration fails with DuplicateLnbRef you have to include the StructureCheckerValidator before the LnbRefValidator in your workflows.

    {primary} Structure Warnings (since 21.20.0) will be visible in the history if the workflow contains the WarningCheckerValidator workflow step.

    Submission History for a record that was changed

    {primary} Standardizer actions and Structure Checker fixers are NOT listed currently when the submission is accepted to be a new lot (or version) of an existing compound in the database (e.g. when assigning a submission from the Registration page from the Find or Suggestions window).

    You can find here a timeline with information about every registration attempt, manual save, assignment and change to a previous state. You can see the original structure and every structure modification in chronological order (newest at the top - oldest at the bottom).

    Submission History page containing more states of the submission

    If you do modification in structure and/or in additional data, you will have a 'user-initiated a registration attempt' or 'user manually saved the submission state' message in the history (depending on whether you used the Save or Assign button). You can see the modification in structure if any, but changes in additional data are not listed here.

    {info} Custom structure checkers and source-based checkers are also displayed here.


    When a submission is modified, a Restore page (Figure Restore) contains the changes that were applied. With the help of this function, it is possible to restore the submission to a previous state.

    Restoring a state from the Submission page

    Since version 19.20.0, if no changes were made, the history for this submission will be empty (Figure Restore with no history) and if there are changes later the new states can be seen in chronological order, newest at the top, oldest at the bottom (Figure Restore with history).

    (In older versions the order in the history from top to the bottom was: current state, oldest state - newest state.)

    Restore states for a record that was changed

    Restore process: Click to the previous state you would like to restore e.g. restore the first state (benzene) and click to the Restore button. You can see in the Before restore and After restore pictures that the structure has been changed to the previous state (benzene) and the lately added comment has been removed.

    Submissions can be assigned to other users, who can decide about the structure registration, e.g. registrations involving matching structures, adding proper additional data, etc .

    The assignment can be done in various ways:

    • by clicking Find and then on the suggestion list the Assign to button, or
    • clicking the Register and then on the suggestion list the Assign to buttoon, or

    The username, e-mail address and full name properties of a user are displayed in the user selector dropdown and are all searchable through a typeahead filter. Advanced typeahead quick filter* of user drop-down is also available during the assignment.

    {info} The last user choice will always determine the new default assignee for the given user in the given web browser.

    A user (e.g. a registrar) can also quickly assign a submission back to the original creator. For this, the "Select original creator of submission" button will be available.

    images/download/attachments/1802393/4.png images/download/attachments/1802393/5.png
    The "Select original creator of submission" button is available. After clicking the "Select original creator of submission" button, the submission creator user appears in the user list.

    {info} If the E-mail notification is ON, the users will get notifications via E-mail upon the assignment of submissions.

    There are three types of notations for the Assigned to field on the Submission page:

    Assigned to the current user

    | Assigned to another user

    Clear assignee

    This functionality can be used in order to set the Unassigned status for the given submission.
