Until now, the trial structure could only be defined in smatrix itself, with some limitations.
As of version 2.3, the trial structure can be imported from an Excel or CSV file, and thus the numbering can now be freely selected. Thus, from now on, the field trial technician can easily import his field book - with randomized structures and asymmetric trial structures - into smatrix.
It is still possible to name the trial units in up to 3 hierarchy levels.
In addition to the free numbering of the test units, further columns can also be read in, which can be displayed in smatrix as a tooltip. Details on this can be found in the manual.
Data exchange with our interface DCI not only saves the user valuable time, but also creates new connections in the workflow of a field trial technician.
Feel free to contact us about how the new interfaces can support you in your work process. We are interested in finding out which software you use for planning, managing and evaluating trials.
