Every request distributed through the PopMedNet system includes metadata about the request. This metadata serves to identify the request, the requester, the priority of the request, and the request's purpose or justification.
This metadata may be system-generated or entered by the requester. For example, the time at which the request was submitted is generated by the system, while the description of the request is entered by the requester. As a requester, you may define the metadata for the following fields
Request Name: the name of the request, usually an informal name by which submitters can recognize the request
