Detail View
Edit/View the content of a record
Labii ELN & LIMS records contain both structured and unstructured data. A record's detail can be viewed in the detail view. A variety of views are available:
  • Overview, displays all other views and lets you open more views as needed.
  • Columns, display the structure data in labels and values.
  • Sections, show a list of sections with unstructured data.
  • Notes, display an editor for quick documentation.
  • Versions, display a list of versions.
  • Activities, display a list of activities.
  • Visitors, display a list of visitors.
For each table, you can select the view that should be opened by default. By doing so, all records from that table will be opened with the selected view. You may always want "Notes" to be opened by default for experiment records, and "Columns" to be opened by default for sample records.
