How To Move Mice Into EXISTING Cages with filter

Every cage in the system can be identified by a user created Cage Tag or an automatically generated Sequential Cage I.D. (SID) that can be used to facilitate cage identifaction or be used as a stand alone cage identifier. The system allows for multiple cages to have the same Cage Tag but not the same Cage SID, for users who have different rooms for example.    
The steps below are aimed to help aid the moving of mice into an existing cage and you know some identifiers (i.e Mouseline, Disposition, DOB, etc.), but not the exact Cage Tag or S.I.D.  
If you already know the exact Cage Tag or the Sequential Cage I.D. of the cage where the mice wice will be moved, please click here.
To move mice into an EXISTING Cage with the filter, follow these steps: 


1.  On the Move page, open the Filter

2.  In the Filter parameters, enter any information that you may know of the existing cage into which you want to move the mice to find your desired cage --- To search for an inactive cage, use the State Filter option and select Inactive

3.  Click the green Filter button

4.  Select the check box of the desired cage in the Cage List that will appear on the filter menu screen --- The first number is the Cage Tag. The second is in parentheses is the SID - Sequential I.D.

5.  Select the check box of the mouse or group of mice from the table below --- If multiple mice should go in the same existing cage, first group them by clicking the orange "Group" button

6.  Click the Apply button --- Here you will notice that the Cage Tag field in the Cage Information section of the table will be automatically filled with the existing Cage Tag

7.  Repeat for the next group of mice

8.  Finally, click on the green "Create / Update Cages button" to save your changes.

The Mice will now be moved into the existing cage(s).
