Logging with Labstep


A simple interface to post entries to your Labstep timeline



Labstep is an online laboratory management system, helping users organize and share protocols and experiments. 

The Labstep timeline can be used as a logbook, keeping track of user actions. 


This example program lets you post to the Labstep timeline directly from LabVIEW. The included subvi 'Post To Labstep Timeline.vi' can easily be integrated into your existing LabVIEW code for automated posts upon an event. This allows you to effortlessly create an audit trail - for example, automatically post to the timeline every time a user captures an image with a digital camera, including metadata such as aperture and exposure time.
