When designing new products or digging into the hazard data associated with materials from different suppliers, a comparison of inventory information can help show you where one product stands out, for better or worse.
Toxnot Team users can create comparisons of two products or materials on-the-fly, export the raw substance and material data, and save the result to check out again later. You can also share meaningful inventory comparisons with other members of your team.
Create a Comparison
The top section of your new comparison is a collection of charts summarizing Product % by LT Score and List Memberships for the substances and linked materials within your inventories.
The bottom section of the comparison is a differential of the substances and linked materials where you can dig further into which substances and materials are responsible for the scores you see.
Within your comparison, you can:
- Save a comparison, Share a comparison with a member of your team, or Export the results of your comparison.
- Toggle between a summary of Substances or Linked Materials in your inventories.
- Select a Regulatory, Restricted, or My List against which to flag substances and materials in your inventories.
- Toggle between percentage and weights in the differential table.
- Click any product, material, or substance name to open a new tab to the BOM Editor or Substance Details.
Save a Comparison
By clicking Save, you will save the comparison relationship to be viewed again at a later time. You can view your own and your team's saved comparisons at any time by clicking Design Tools in the navigation sidebar.
Share a Comparison
By clicking Share, you can send a link to your comparison to a member of your team by email, and include a custom message for your colleague. Sharing comparisons is a great way to spread the word on beneficial substitutions or inventories needing more attention.
Sharing a comparison will automatically save the comparison, and you will be able to revisit it at any time by clicking Design Tools in the navigation sidebar.
Export a Comparison
If you want to dig further into your comparison or create your own graphs, click Export to generate a .csv file containing the raw summary data of the comparison.
