The Specify Prep Add Tool is .NET graphical desktop application written in C#. The application consumes an .xls file containing either the CollectionObject.GUID or CollectionObject.catalogNumber and adds a preparation to the Collection Object corresponding to each row of the spreadsheet.  The user further has the ability to select which Agent the change is attributed to.  Finally, the application reports how many preparations were successfully inserted, appends the newly created preparation GUIDs to the uploaded spreadsheet and allows the user to download the amended spreadsheet.

The Auto Populate External functionality is specific to the Florida Museum integration with our CDN software which provides permalinks for media attached to collection object and preparation. When external is checked, the permalink redirects to the provided external address. This allows us to leverage external domain specific repositories, such as MorphoSource, while publishing the resource under our own namespace. For more information, check out the CDN PDF.
