3. Once submitted, a new experiment record appears with the detail of the experiment. The details of the experiments show the contents of an experiment, for example, overview, protocol, results. etc.

More sections can be added. Click the (+) signs to insert a new section, Choose a widget to use. Labii’s widgets work like the apps on your smartphone, each widget presents one set of functions.

Select ‘Rich text’ to edit text just like a word document. Select ‘Table’ to add a new section similar to a spreadsheet table.
