If you add an animal record manually, and did not use the Import Animal function, you must assign that animal to a protocol using the feature below in the Workbench.
To access this feature, select the Protocol tab in the Workbench screen to display the screen below.
By default, the organisation structure is not expanded and the Protocol value is blank.
Open the organisation structure to locate the cage of animals you wish to assign to a protocol.
Select the Protocol from the list.
Highlight the cage you wish to assign to the protocol and click on the arrow. This will add those animals to the selected protocol and update the animals total for that protocol.
Then press the Save button to commit this information to the system.
If the number of animals you are allocating to the protocol will take you over the maximum permitted animals on that protocol record, the system will tell you that you are over-committed and prevent the addition of those animals to that protocol.
