Creating eNotebook entries
You can create a new Entry in any Notebook that you have access to. Owing to the evolution of LabTrove Notebooks from a blog-based system, some internal variables do still use the term blog.
To create a new Entry:
- Open the Notebook in which you want to create a new Entry.
- Click New Entry beneath This Notebook on the right hand navigation menu. The Add Entry page is displayed.
- Add a Title for your Entry.
- Enter the content for your Entry in the text box.
- (Optional) You can format the text to change the font size, add bullets, add links and pictures, add code, and so on. For information about formatting your Entry, see the links below.
- Enter a Section for your post. You can create and define your own Sections. The Section is useful for classifying your Entry. You can choose a Section from the existing options in the drop-down list, or alternatively you can create a new section:
- Select - New section - from the drop-down list.
- Enter a name for the section in the New section name.
- Click OK.
- (Optional) You can add metadata to your Entry to help make it easier for you and other users to find the Entry later. For information about adding metadata to your Entry, see the links below.
- (Optional) You can see what your Entry will look like before you submit it by clicking the Preview button.
- (Optional) You can save a draft of your Entry to edit later by clicking Save for later. To see your draft Entry click Dashboard at the top of the page.
- To publish the Entry click Publish, alternatively if you decide you do not want to save the Entry, click Cancel to return to the Notebook without saving.
Once you have created a Entry or draft you can edit the Entry to make changes and add data.
