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 left 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, you can filter by owner and time range and 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. Entities owned by you will appear higher on the results list .
Under each result you can find more information like the page creation date , the owner and more.

NOTE: Archived items will appear at the bottom and will be marked as “archived” for better filtering

2. Search by filters in index pages

The filtering function in our index pages allows you to display the needed information in a personalised view.

Click on the more menu (3 dots) to choose columns to customize the fields you want to see and sort the data displayed on it. In addition, by clicking on the funnel icon you are able to choose from list of filter and write or choose the search criteria to narrow down the results.
When the three dots are blue it indicates that there is an active filter in the column .

NOTE: The system will remember this filters until cleared, even after logging out.
