With Labhandy protocols, you can utilize all the benefits of mobile devices, such as accessing and entering data faster, in a user-friendly and responsive manner. Your Labguru account contains all the actions, submissions, and information you gather using Labhandy.
So let's get started, how do we build an efficient protocol that would be available for use?
How does it work:
1. In order to render a protocol available in the Labhandy application, protocols should be tagged with the 'Labhandy' Tag in your Labguru account (one word, not case sensitive)
2. Only protocols that have been built using Form element are uploaded to Labhandy, and only the first form element in the page will be available. Additional form elements on the page will not be used in Labhandy.
3. The input Field Name will be presented as a placeholder, suggesting to the user what data should be entered into the form field.
Figure 2- shows how the form field was created in Labguru.(Form element type "Member select" dialog in Labguru)
In the image below (Figure 3- protocol view in Labhandy) you can see an example of a “Daily calibration” protocol. The first field (on the top left) is of the ‘Equipment select’ type, which allows you to add equipment from your account to the form.
4. All form fields in the form element will be “required” by default (only within Labhandy) even if they were not marked as such during the field creation.
Example use cases:
A frequent, repetitive task, activity, experiment, or a standard operating procedure that has a set order of steps to follow (not recommended for processes that have a long wait time between steps)
Activities taking place in remote/ inaccessible places such as greenhouses, small spaces, clean rooms, outdoors, aseptic manufacturing floors
