Create protocols

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

To create a new protocol, click the + inside a Project's folder and select Protocol.

Attach protocols to entries

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

Click the + to create a new entry in the Notebook section of a project. 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.

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.

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!
