In order to provide important meta information to each entry respectively, there will always be a header as exemplified by the following screenshot: 

  1. Unique ID - the unique ID will show up as Entry N/Total, meaning the Nth entry out of the total number of entries you have in one project.
  2. Title - make it relevant to what is contained within, so you and others can easily identify the contents in the future.
  3. Author - this is the person who created the entry and the only one who can make changes to it.
  4. Timestamps - the dates indicate when the entry was created and then last edited. Besides that, custom dates can be added to achieve an even better organization. To ensure your timestamps are accurate, check that you have the correct time zone defined in your settings.
  5. Tags - you can add tags to your entry to make it easier to retrieve it later on. These should be also relevant to the content and make sense to search for.

Add or edit custom dates

Custom dates are especially useful for annotating important steps in your experiments.


You might want to indicate when a specific step of an experiment was done. It could also be the due date for a part of the project or a date after which no more edits should be made.

  1. Click on the v shaped pull-down menu indicator next to Custom dates.
  2. Type the custom date's name or choose an option from the list.

  4. Create more custom dates as needed by repeating steps 2 and 3.
  5. When done click the v shaped indicator again to collapse the menu.


Tip: If the date is far away you can also type it in the format DD.MM.YYYY, rather than flicking through the pop-up calendar.
