Adding Protocol Fields
Protocols can be created with the regular text editor, but can also be made dynamically adjustable by defining variables and creating formulas. By doing so, you can set up standard protocols that can be changed in a few mouse-clicks according to the required experiment settings. Check the public protocol repository for some examples of dynamic protocols.
To create a protocol with a dynamic field, you can click on the + in the formula bar of the text editor
You can choose to add the following protocol fields:
- Variable – A field that can be changed or filled in when configuring the procedure
- Formula – A function field that changed according to the defined relation between protocol variables
- Existing field – A reference to an existing variable or function field (i.e. a formula referring to the selected existing field)
