Labii notification center.


A notification is a message that provides the user with reminders, communication from other people, or other timely information from Labii. With Labii's notification center, you can stay informed about your Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) activities.

Use cases:

  1. Administrators can send company-wide messages using the notification center.

  2. Users can communicate on a particular experiment or record.

  3. Email can be scheduled for CRM users.

List of notifications

In the notification center, the inbox displays a list of notifications you have received. By default, the inbox will be opened when you click "Notifications" in the side menu.


You can access the sent box by clicking Sent tab.

A future date appears under "Date sent" to indicate this is a scheduled message. This message will be sent on that date.
