Tip #245: Method Versioning: Method Revision History

Welcome back to Get Empowered! In the last Empower tip-of-the-week blog for Empower Chromatography Data System, we learned about Method Versioning as it applies to Method Validation Protocols and Processing Methods (Tip #244).

In this week’s tip, we will conclude our series on Method Versioning, focusing on Method Revision History.

Let’s get started.

Step 1

When you create a new method, it starts at version 1. If you recall from the previous tips in this series:

  • If you modify the method and save it with the same name, the version increments.
  • If you take an older version and Save As Current in Method Properties, it creates a new version (figure 1).

Step 2

You can trace the origin of a version which varies depending on how it was created (figure 2).

Step 3

If you print the method, the Revision History section documents the path taken to create all versions (figure 3).

It’s that easy!


Final Note: This can be done with either the Pro or QuickStart interface.
