If a new Object type for a protocol is created by an Instance admin in the admin interface, it is advisable to set the Object type to Protocol in the Settings, under Utilities.
For this, follow the steps below:
- Go to Settings
- Click Edit
- Scroll to the last section of the Settings: Object Type definitions Extension
- Open the Object type corresponding to your protocol, e.g. General Protocol
- Select Use as Protocol
This is done to be able to create local copies of protocols from the Inventory inside an Experiment when writing Experimental steps, as described in How to use protocols in Experimental Steps
