Creating protocols

Benchling allows the creation of commonly used protocols which can be attached to your ELN entries.  

To create a new protocol, use the + button inside a project's notebook and select Protocol.

Attaching protocols to entries

Attach protocols to entries to easily reference the steps of your experiment.

  1. Create a new entry by going to the Notebook section of a project and clicking the plus sign. Once the entry is opened, go to the Add Protocol tab on the top left, search for your protocol, and add it to your entry.

    2. Linked protocols can be edited, but the original protocol will remain
        unchanged. To view your protocol alongside your notes, click Split
        Workspace at the bottom right of the screen.

     3. You can also drag and drop a PDF or document into the Add Protocol tab
         to insert it as a protocol

Tip: Editing the attached protocol will not affect the master copy!
