Customise the Main Menu

Lab Notebook menu

It is also possible to customise which entities should be shown under Experiments/Collections in the main menu under the Lab Notebook section.

By default, only the Object types Entry and Experimental Step are shown (see picture below).

If you want to show additional custom Object types in the lab notebook main menu, they need to be enabled by editing the Settings.

Go to the Object Type definitions Extension section in the Settings. Open the relevant Object type, which you would like to see in the Main menu of the Lab Notebook and select Show in lab notebook main menu, as shown below.

By default, the Object Types Entry and Experimental Step have this option already selected.

Please note that this is only valid for the Lab Notebook section. In the Inventory section, entries are never shown in the main menu, because inventories can potentially have thousands of entries, which are better visualised in tables, rather than in the main menu.
