labfolder Feature Reviews

8 reviewers had the following to say about labfolder's features:

Markus Klein

I tested several ELNs before selecting labfolder, which suited my needs the best.

2017-06-22

We sometimes also have researchers from other institutions working with us on different projects, which would be complicated without an online interface and the collaboration tools.

Pros

- Audit trail so I can review and restore any changes made - I can export all my notes as a xhtml

Cons

- The design is a bit boring (but functional) - Limited storage (3GB) in the free version - No Open source version

Intuitive and easy the system is to use

2020-05-24

It helped our laboratory to track and record our notes and data in a modern and very efficient way.

Pros

I'd really like the fact that you can import and export data with this software.

Cons

For sure I would like more storage for free but I guess it's not really a disadvantage.

Very satisfied. Labfolder helps me organize my research notes during my Phd studies

2017-07-11

i have a better overview of all my experiments

Pros

I like the search functionality a lot.

Cons

As I sometimes use certain advanced excel functionalities, it would be useful to have full excel functionality embedded, rather than always having to import the files from Excel into the notebook.

labfolder Review

2020-01-06

Instead of storing things in piles, folders, cases.. you can now store them online and search for them with ease.

Pros

I like that it is easy to add any format document and also input graphs, charts, and other types of lab data.

Cons

I would suggest keeping a backup record of each because if the system goes down or there is a glitch and you do not keep any copies, then all of your work is gone. It is this way with everything tech-y, though.

good experience

2017-07-31

Pros

It is nice that you can record which materials have been used for each experiment, and then search for them in the notebook.

Cons

Would also want to see an integration with Box .

Thank you for leaving a review Tobias! We are working on a new user interface which will make it easier for beginners to discover all the features that labfolder has to offer. Also, while we do not have an integration with Box, we do offer an integration with Dropbox and also offer decent storage options in the ELN itself.

Super easy onboarding experience. Our entire team was set up within days and loving it!

2018-07-02

Pros

GDPR compliance - I work at a European biotech company and I felt that so many of the providers were unaware or unprepared with dealing with data privacy issues. labfolder clearly invested time in its compliance and all our data stays stored in the EU. 3.

Cons

Nothing major comes to mind. There are always a few things we come up with that would be nice to have, but all the important stuff is there.

Science notebook

2019-09-10

Although it is convenient, it is not my cup of tea. I'll stick to pen and paper.

Pros

It allowed for ease of access when it came to sharing my lab notebook with other people in my lab.

Cons

I prefer having a hardcopy notebook and this seem counterintuitive to be writing things down via pen and then typing up my notebook.

Really useful for lab meetings and 1-on-1 meetings with the boss

2019-07-19

Pros

I can have this program open on the same computer I am collecting data with and just type in any notes if necessary.

Cons

This is actually probably a good thing overall, but I hate it. It allows my boss to see my daily progress, as he can see what I upload to it and when. This kind of creates a bit of a micromanaging situation which I personally don't like.
