There are 3 types of notifications related to the submission of lab results which are typically being configured by TA users:
1). Lab Result Notification:
If the Lab submits the results, receivers are the users of the Lab, WADA, Testing Authority as configured in the result, any other organisation as indicated in the 'Send notification of results to:". Users of the receiving organisation must have selected the notification type 'Lab Result Notification' under their account profile.
2). DCF Notification:
If a Lab result with status AAF/ATF is submitted and becomes matched after the submission, an automatic notification will be sent to WADA, TA (in the Lab result and DCF), the IF handling the sport (only for AAF), other organisations as selected by the Lab.
3). Negative Lab Result:
If a Lab result with status Negative is submitted and becomes matched with a DCF after the submission, an automatic notification will be sent to WADA (if WADA is the Test authority in the DCF) and the TA (in the Lab result and DCF). If the Lab result with status Negative is submitted and there is no associated DCF in ADAMS, then only the TA in the Lab result becomes notified. Users of the receiving organisation must have selected the notification type 'Negative lab result Notification' under their account profile.
4). When an ATF Result becomes Negative: (new since ADAMS 3.0)
The notification type is: "ATF becomes Negative Lab Result Notification". A notification will be sent to the users who have this notification type enabled, when a lab changes the Lab Result from ATF to Negative. The body of the notification is:
ATF of sample [sample type - sample code] has been changed and submitted to be Negative by [Laboratory]
Why do I receive a 'Warning' notification such as "The message fails to be sent to the next organizations because they don't have users assigned for this type of notification: Anti-Doping organization X"?
For the Lab result and DCF notification types (1 & 2) the Lab submitting the result receives a warning if the TA has not defined any user with this notification type configured in his/her user account profile. These warning notifications solely aim at informing you and making you aware that the recipient organization might not have seen your result in ADAMS. In the outbox of the Message Centre all users are listed who are possible receivers of the notification. But if within the TA there is no user who has these notification types assigned, the warning message will appear. For the Negative Lab result notification type (3) no warnings are sent if no user of the TA (related to the DCF) has set up this notification type under their account. This is done to avoid unnecessary information-overload.
When a sample has been collected and the Doping Control Form (DCF) has been entered in ADAMS, will ADAMS send the Laboratory in question a notification automatically?
ADAMS will not send any notification to the Lab when the status of the DCF is set to Complete-Sample collected.
