How to Add a New Workflow State Between "Received" and "To be Verified" in Senaite?

Hi Community,

I hope you’re doing well.

I am currently working with the Senaite LIMS system and I would like to modify the sample workflow to better fit our laboratory processes. Specifically, we want to introduce a new state between “Received” and “To be verified” to indicate that a sample has been taken into work by a laboratory technician.

The existing workflow in Senaite is as follows:sample-workflow

We would like to add a new state called “In Work” after “Received” and before “To be verified”. This state change would be performed by a laboratory technician.

Could you please guide me on how to achieve this? Is it possible to add this new state and if so, what steps should I follow?

Thank you very much for your assistance!

Best regards, Ersan
