The Labstep folder watcher - works a bit like Dropbox or G drive!

By installing the Labstep folder watcher you can set folders on your Windows or Mac os to be 'watched' - What does this mean?

It means that whenever you save a file to a watched folder it is automatically uploaded to your Labstep account.You can then easily attach these files to an experiment step or result by selecting the 'File from watched folder' option.
