Current Product Limitations

The Validated Cloud tenants have the following limitations:

  • Boolean configured fields for results tables in Notebook entries are not functioning as intended. It is recommended that dropdowns are utilized instead for configuring equivalent functionality. Alternately, users will need to conduct a verification check if a Boolean configured field is being utilized in the results table in an Entry. This can be done via the results tab of the corresponding entities.
  • Reason for change modal is not prompted when archiving and unarchiving rows of a results table. Unarchiving of rows of a results table is not captured in the audit trail.
  • Cells with no values in the CSV export of the audit trail are blank instead of N/A.
  • PDF exports of audit logs do not include large batch events. A large batch event is considered an upload/import of more than 100 items at one time. It is recommended that you do not use PDF exports until after Benchling has addressed this issue. At that time, complete audit logs will be available for export.

Validated Cloud Notifications

In order to keep you updated on the schedule for the coming release, you will receive a series of important email and in-app notifications.
