-Import Persons names from a spreadsheet (Excel spreadsheet saved in .CSV)
-Import Plant Lines info from a spreadsheet (Excel spreadsheet saved in .CSV)
-Import Seed Batches info from a spreadsheet (Excel spreadsheet saved in .CSV)
-Editing of alarm parameters, in a species dependent manner:
Activation/deactivation of an alarm triggered at a specific time after harvest
Activation/deactivation of an alarm triggered when no Seed Batches are placed in storage
Activation/deactivation of an alarm triggered at a specific time after Germination test
-Creation of an alarm (non-editable) highlighting Plant lines with no recorded Seed Batches

Minor modifications:

-Functions for creating a new entry placed on top of the columns (instead of underneath)

User mode: Search engine 

Major modifications:
-Refresh search result after line renaming
-Search plant lines based on:
Seed batch harvest date
Organism class (Pathogenic risk)
Selectable marker in plants (resistance)
Person involved in a specific experiment
Parent line name

Minor modification:
-Search parameters: “Seedbatch” field placed above “Genetic features”

User Mode: Plant lines

Major modifications:
-Possibility to export seedbatches when exporting several plant lines at once in SeedUSoon format
-Possibility to edit a line name during line import when an identical line name already exists
-User must select an option in the “Person” and “Species” scroll-down menus when creating a line
-Line, plant or seedbatches creation wizards: skipping steps is enabled (by pressing “Finish”).
-Crossing and mutagenesis wizards: more intuitive filtering function when searching for the parental lines + possibility to search for the parental lines using a seed batch ID
-Export one or several Plant Lines in CSV format (including attached files)
-Plant and seedbatches: allow n “phenotyping” files instead of only one
-MTA generation: easier preparation of the MTA template (insensitive to formatting)

Minor modifications:
-Improved ergonomy and field depiction during Plant Line export
-Genealogy tree:
Export of the full image even if zoomed in before export
Indication on the line history (mutagenesis/crossing) in the pop-up when scrolling over the links

Minor modifications:
-Addition of a pop-up clarifying the use of the symbol “%“ to replace characters in the query

User Mode: Plant lines

Major modifications:
-During line import from another SeedUSoon database (.json format): when options are not available in the database, possibility to select other options during import
-Line duplication wizard (links to parental lines are severed during the duplication process)
-In all wizards: “Next>” or “Finish” are preselected
-Simplified procedure for plant line generation using the “crossing” wizard
-From the seed batches table: export of a .csv file for label printing (including a barcode field)
