Exporting All Your Data in A Readable Format from SciNote

2 min read

SciNote Premium Academia and Industry accounts now enable you to export all your projects’ data in a readable format. And it gets even better – all your attachments will also be neatly organized in folders.

Exporting all your data from SciNote

1. Select your projects

When you hover your mouse over the projects on your SciNote dashboard, you’ll see that you can tick the box in the upper right corner of each project card and select one or multiple projects.

2. Click Export projects

By creating custom columns, you can include information that is unique to each inventory, such as validation date for instruments, expiration date for reagents, unique sample IDs, barcodes, pictures, files etc.

After you select the projects you want to export all data from, click export all in the upper right corner of your dashboard.

What will the export look like i.e. what will you get?

You will get the .zip folder that will contain:

1. Full project report with all data

Ready to print and completely readable, your full, detailed, large project report file will be ready for you to store, use or share with the project team if needed.

You will receive the full report in a .html format (can be opened in your browser). No worries, it can also be opened easily using Microsoft Word.

How?

  • 1. Right-click on the file and choose Open with: Microsoft Word (select it among all your apps)

    2. When the file opens, you will see all contents of your report. If you need, you can edit it.

    3. Go to the File Menu and choose Save as. Then change the file type to .docx and save (if you see an info dialog, just click ok).

     

2. All attachments, neatly organized in folders

The name of the main .zip folder will be the name of your team.

Each project within it has its own folder. Folders will be numbered so that you’ll know exactly in which order they were organized in SciNote.

 

When you open a project folder, you’ll see that experiments within each project have their sub-folders. You can also see the folder that contains files from your archived experiments, and your inventories. Also, here you’ll be able to find the full project report file.

 

When you open the experiment sub-folder, you’ll see that each task has its own folder.

Even attachments (the files which you attached to each task) will be divided into folders e.g. protocol and results attachments.

Each file (attachment) will also contain the number of the protocol step in its name, so you’ll know exactly to which part of the protocol this particular file was attached.

 

3. Data from each inventory will be exported as an Excel table

All data from your inventories in SciNote will be exported in large excel tables, one table per inventory.

They will be available and organized in the Inventories sub-folder, that will be within the main folder of your project (shown above). Also, if you had any files attached to your inventory items, they will be there as well (organized in the inventory attachments folder).

Please note that export all functionality is available to SciNote Premium users only!
