When should an item or task be canceled?

Cancel items and tasks that cannot be completed successfully

Items and tasks have a "canceled" status. This status should be used to handle a number of situations that prevent the tasks to be successfully completed. This includes:

  • Requests by mistakes
  • Duplicate requests
  • Requests that are denied by the lab manager
  • Orders that were canceled because of shipping delays
  • Experiments that failed because of operational mistakes that prevent the collection of useful data.
