Add new slides and snapshots

You can add new slides and snapshots to the WebMicroscope either by directly copying them to the server, or by uploading them via the administration interface.

If you copy slides to the server, for example to a shared folder in your LAN (Local Area Network), the new slides will be detected when you load the Administration start page, and you will be notified of the new slides with an option to index them. In a department with an own scanner, the scanner software should be configured to automatically copy digitized slides to the server.

You can also manually check for new slides in the Check for new tab in the Slide manager, and select the slides and snapshots you wish to add to your archive.

You can also use the Upload slides function in the Slide manager to add new slides or snapshots. Note that if you use this integrated upload function the slides will automatically be added to your archive.

Define slide folders on the server

A server slide folder is a folder configured on the server to store virtual slides and snapshots in. A server slide folder can be personal to an administrator, or shared among all, or a group of administrators, on the portal.

Before you can define a folder for your user account, the it-personnel responsible for the server administration should have provided you with information on where your slides are stored, i.e. 1) the name of the server, and 2) the name of the folder(s).

Technical information for server administrators

When you know the name of the server and the name of the folder(s), navigate to the Server folders section in the Settings of the administration, and follow the instructions.

Organize and view my slides

When a slide or a snapshot has been added to your archive, you can find it in the Root folder of the Organizer in the Slide manager. By clicking the small thumbnail image you can open the slide or snapshot for viewing. If you click the caption text you can view more info on the slide, and you can continue to edit slide info such as the Caption, topography, morphology, freetext diagnosis. You can also adjust the Pixel size if it was incorrecly indexed. You can also edit the Scanner and Objective Tags of the slide.

Slides and snapshots can be in the Organizer by first selecting them to the left in the slide listing, and then clicking the "Move to another folder" link above the slide listing. When this link is clicked you will see a thumbnail listing of the slides that will be moved, and a "Confirm move slides" button. When you have selected the destination folder in the folder tree to the left, you can click the "Confirm move slides" button and the slides will be moved. Folders are moved in a similar manner, except that the "This folder: Move" linkbutton should be clicked to move the currently selected folder.

Add a new slide page

You can add a new page either from the Administration start page, or from the Page manager.

To add a new page from the Administration start page, select a page template in the dropdown list. By selecting a template in the dropdown list you will automatically be redirected to the Create new page function in the Page manager.

In the Page manager you can add a new page either in the Organizer tab or in the Listing tab. Clicking the blue "Add new page" button in either of the tabs will display the controls in Figure 1.

To continue you should first select a page template from the dropdown list. When you have selected a template for the new page, you can either create the page by following a 9-step wizard (Create page and start wizard button), or by clicking the "Create page without wizard" button. If you choose not to follow the step-wise wizard you can edit all settings as usually in the Page manager.

For details on how to use the Create page wizard, please see the help section in the Page manager.

When the page itself has been added you can go on and edit the page. First you should check that the folder where it is stored is correct, and set the Access permissions in the Settings tab in the Page manager. Note that if the page is stored somewhere in the Events portal folder it will be listed as an event in searches and browse by listings, and you can define an event date.

In the Contents tab you can then edit the Page name, title and description, and you can edit the page header and footer in the HTML editors (by clicking the blue Edit buttons).

Cases are added in the Cases tab by selecting a template for the new case, and clicking the blue "Add case" button. When you have added a case, you can edit it by clicking the case icon up on the page. The new case will have a heading and a case history copied from the template you selected, but you can now edit all settings of the case, add slides, questions and attachments.
