Pool Data in Label-free Metabolites workflow

Hello Everyone,
I am currently working on the Label-free Metabolites workflow and i have a question with regard to the Pool data , in the Handout of OpenMS is not mentioned where exactly should i insert the Pool Data so i have add it with the sampels together in the Input Files node but i am not quite sure if it is the rightway!
I would be very grateful for your answers !
Best regards .

Hi!

Depends on how you want to use the pool data. Using it as an additional “sample” is fine. You can use its quantities later for normalization, and/or use it as a reference during MapAlignment.
