Traceability of data is crucial in research. In Labguru, all your data is traceable, including all uploaded attachments, calendar and task events.
Labguru's search functions:
1. Global Search engine
The Global Search, located on the top right of every Labguru page, is the most complete and powerful search tool of the app. All the data in the account can be found with it, including text within your experiment, text within attachments (PDF or any attachment with text), images or any entry title.
It is possible to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to get more accurate results.
For example, search for "method" AND "RNA" will output results to Labguru entries containing the two keywords.
Furthermore, within your search results you can filter the hits by specifying the category. For example, clicking on 'Experiments' category will filter the results list to show results from experiment pages only.
Under each result you can find more more information like the page creation date and the exact location where you can term was found.
NOTE: if you have more than one page of results the category filters will only affect the current page.
This is a useful tool to find items in index pages (inventory lists/stocks/equipment). The basic search bar can be used to find items by name or SysID. Below the Search bar, there is a direct link to the advanced search tool. The advanced search tool enables you to filter by any of the fields in the collection or, by a combination of several fields by clicking on 'Add New Search Term' below the drop down menus.
Search by filters
The new filtering function in our Experiment and Inventory index pages allows you to display the needed information in a personalised view.
To do so, click on the more menu (3 dots) > Choose Columns to customize the fields you want to see, then choose filter to further narrow the results to the values you'd like to see.
When the more menu background is white, it indicates the fields where the filters values are applied.
NOTE: The system will remember this filter until cleared, even after logging out.
