Here at Labstep, we want to provide you with a real-time updated centralised system where you can easily manage your work. Never miss an important date by setting up alerts and reminders!
Adding alerts to Date Fields:
Add a Date Field
Hover over the field
Click on the bell
Select how many days/minutes before the date in the field you want the alert to fire
Add a custom message which will appear in the notification/email to guide users on what they need to do
Click on the notification/link in the email to go to the item/experiment
Labstep team tip: If you set up an alert on a Category or Protocol field then it will be automatically set when the user enters the date on the specific resource/item/experiment.
NOTE: Once you set an alert on a template field it will only apply to new items created from the template. Existing items will not automatically have an alert.
Controlling Notifications for Alerts:
You can choose which notifications alerts and reminders to receive and how.
Navigate to the Notification Centre
Select whether to receive alerts via web/email and if for all entities in the workspace or just those you are a collaborator on.
Alerts on Expiry Dates of Inventory Items
Alerts for Servicing or Calibration Dates on Equipment/Devices
Alerts for Due dates on Order Requests
Alerts for important dates in Experiments and Protocols
