Update and manage Labii access of your team members


People (previously known as Personnel) are the members of your organization that have permission to document research data. Use it to control who can access your research data.

There are 4 roles for the people based on the configuration:

  • Administrators - In Labii, the administrator is the user with control over the account. They are responsible for configuring accounts to meet the company's research needs. Administrators are also your company's point of contact with Labii. Feedbacks/questions from end users should be collected by administrators and provided to Labii. Mark a user as the administrator by setting is_administrator=true.

  • Read-write users - The read-write users are the members of the organization. Members are able to create and edit records as well as read and sign records already in place.

  • Read-only users - Read-only users can only view and sign records. They can't edit any records. Users with read-only permissions are best suited for people who don't need to perform benchling work but simply need to review the data. Mark a user as a read-only user by setting is_readonly=true.

  • Archived users - When an employee leaves the company, the user should be archived to block access.

Labii does not charge the archived members. The seat of a archived user can be used for other users.
