File and document hierarchy in Labfolder

Modified on Thu, 14 Jul 2022 at 01:01 PM

Labfolder Data is organised according to the following hierarchical model.

Each level can contain any number of subordinated blocks (i.e. unlimited Projects in Folders, Entries in Projects, Entry Elements in Entries, etc.).

Entry Elements represent the core components of Labfolder. An element refers to a piece of data generated during your research, including texts, tables, images or files. Individual elements can be arranged accordingly within each Entry.
Entries are composed of (an unlimited number of) Entry Elements. Think of an Entry as a single experiment that contains background information, a protocol, the produced data and their analysis. Each entry can be customised by adding a title, tags and dates. To maintain a logical structure for the ELN, Entries are indelible by design.
Projects resemble project-based or person-based paper lab notebooks. Projects contain a collection of Entries, or files, and allow to archive, share and discuss the obtained data. Share settings can be defined for efficient collaboration.
Folders are collections of any number of Projects and/or Subfolders which allows you to organise your data according to lab and research structures.
