As a company, we drive to design our ELN as customer-friendly as possible and at the same time to offer a wide range of functionalities. In order to achieve this goal, the table element has been completely redesigned. The design as well as the handling is similar to Excel and therefore offers numerous possibilities to clearly display laboratory results within your electronic notebook. Instructions on how to add a table to an entry can be found here. In the following we will give you a short overview of the possibilities.
