Open an MSDS
Several options are available when opening an MSDS. This specific screen displays the functionality of the search tab which lists MSDSs based on keywords or phrases. Users can also open existing MSDSs from a complete list of all data sheets, or from an ordered list of recently opened sheets. The user can choose to base an MSDS on a predefined template.

A typical MSDS
This is a typical MSDS as seen in Talos. WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get") technology allows users to see the actual layout of the data sheet before printing, reducing the number of errors made while authoring the MSDS.

Select a phrase
Double-clicking on a phrase within the MSDS displays the Replace a Phrase dialog, which shows all possible phrases available for this field. The user can choose to select one of the available phrases, or can create a new phrase instead. When a phrase is selected, a preview of the RTF equivalent of the text is shown below. Users can also search for additional phrases by the phrase code or by keywords.

Edit a phrase
This dialog is displayed when editing a phrase in an MSDS. When creating or editing phrases, users have the option to use different fonts, sizes, and styles. In addition, any symbols, images, or text from another area can be pasted into the Phrase Text section. Users also have the ability to select "favorite" phrases and special symbols for multiple use. The translate button at the bottom of the window allows the user to translate English text phrases to text phrases in different languages which are available within the system.

Reorder fields
All fields within an MSDS section may be ordered in any desired manner. In addition, all fields have several display options. Each field can be displayed always, displayed only if it includes at least one phrase, or hidden always. Multiple MSDS views may have differently ordered and named fields and sections. Double-clicking on the "Field Text" in this dialog will open the Edit Field window.

Edit ingredients in an MSDS
Double-clicking on the Ingredients section in an MSDS will open the Edit Ingredients in this MSDS dialog. Users can reorder ingredients that have been entered on the MSDS, and can add to these ingredients by clicking on the "Add..." button. A list of ingredients (similar to a list of phrases) is available when adding ingredients.

Edit an ingredient
When a user adds or edits an ingredient, the Edit an Ingredient dialog is displayed. The user is able to add ingredient name, CAS number, and Acute Toxicity, Aquatic Toxicity, and OEL information. This information is automatically filled in on the required tables on the MSDS. Once an ingredient is added to the list of ingredients, it can be added to any MSDS.

Supervisor approval of an MSDS
A supervisor has the ability to approve a section, approve all sections, and approve an MSDS for distribution. Different users can author different sections of an MSDS; in this case, any supervisor can approve the sections for distribution. Once all sections of the current version of an MSDS are approved, a supervisor can approve the entire MSDS by hitting the Approve MSDS button.
