Release February 21st, 2024
CORE 1.31.0 [SciNote Premium]
SciNote Edit – file check-in / check-out system
We are introducing SciNote Edit, our new file check-in/check-out system. This application allows you to open files attached to SciNote and edit it in your local desktop application. Edits will be saved directly back to SciNote.
To benefit from it, begin by installing the SciNote Edit application on your computer.
The SciNote Edit local application can be downloaded from the SciNote web application. Simply navigate to Settings > Add-ons and click the download button to initiate the installation process. The application is available for both Windows and MacOS.
After you complete the installation, you will see a new option called “Open in [Application Name]” available within files attached to Task Protocol steps and results. When you select this option, the attached file will be opened in the native desktop application installed on your computer.
Any modifications made to the file within the native application will be saved back to SciNote. This system provides a direct connection between the SciNote web platform and your desktop environment, ensuring that changes made to files are directly recorded within SciNote.
For detailed instructions on utilizing SciNote Edit, please refer to our knowledge base article.
SciNote is now integrated with Quartzy, an inventory management and e-commerce platform for tracking, managing order requests and buying lab supply.
With this integration, you can access your Quartzy inventories directly in SciNote, and assign/refer to Quartzy inventory items in SciNote. This integration is included in all premium plans.
Once setup, your Quartzy data will be automatically synced into a dedicated Quartzy inventory in the SciNote Inventories section.
Assign Quartzy items to tasks, tag them using # and link with other inventory items in SciNote using item relationships feature (if enabled).
Org admin can setup the Quartzy – SciNote integration from the add-ons page in SciNote (see instructions in SciNote’s knowledge base). You can also learn more about Quartzy and its integration with SciNote in our latest blog post.
