In our aim to provide greater platform efficiency, we have released additional enhancements to BrightLab Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) this month.

Enhanced Search

New with this release, you can search for ELN projects by entry title or unique ID. The ability to search by title and ID is added to give you the flexibility to sift through your projects in a quick fashion on the ELN landing page. To use the search function, enter the title or ID and click the magnifying glass icon. Example shown below:

Expansion of ELN Title Character Limit

If you’d like to enter a long title to your ELN page, you’re in luck! We have increased the title character limit to 150 so you have the freedom to add longer titles to your projects.

Improved Permission Levels

In this release, we have added Read & Write permissions for ELN in addition to Admin. With this introduction, ELN page specific permissions are provided and are different between the three levels. You can manage permissions and share access with lab members by selecting the “Manage Permission” option from the ellipsis icon. Permissions are inherited like sharing a folder in Google drive. Granting access to a page will automatically grant access to all subpages within the page.
