Periodical inventory backups by email

Following the feedback from LabSuit users in Talinn, Estonia, we have simplified the way  LabSuit works in certain situations.

Pavel Starkov, a PI from Tallinn University of Technology says: "Once in a while an Internet outage may occur,  but we need our inventory at LabSuit to be available offline as well". Impossible to overrate being said, we realized something has to be done.

What we did is added automatic emails, that are sent out periodically and include your inventory back-ups (Excel file). To start off, there will be two options for emails periodicity: WEEKLY basis and MONTHLY basis. It's recommended to use the MONTHLY option, just not to blast you inbox, though if your inventory is updated often, for example daily, you may want to take back-ups on WEEKLY basis.
The good thing about periodic inventory backups is that it's not limited just to lab managers, but every lab member can have inventory backups delivered to his/her email.

This how it lands into your mailbox. It's recommended to use a proper folder within your mail account for your inventory snapshots. In case you're using GMAIL, mail labels might become very handy

In addition, periodic inventory backups may be used as historical logbook: the  inventory  history can be viewed  6 months back or even a year back from now!

Another handy feature is the historical inventory import. Please see the import procedure attached/’below

Lab Fairy embraces Eli Lewis's lab at Ben Gurion university of the Negev

When there is a job for Lab Fairy it doesn't matter whether it's in the Noth or in the South - Lab Fairy packs its tools and embarks for an assignment! This time Lab Fairy has got a call from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.  It's a pure pleasure to work with a professional lab manager Having boarded a train heading South, the Lab Fairy had an hour ride to Beer Sheva. At the campus which is shared by hospital and university, Lab Fairy was met by amazing lab manager - Ronen Schuster. Ronen was so positive and cooperative that Lab Fairy had a true pleasure of working with him. Ronen accompanied us to the lab and gave very accurate instructions, so the expectations on both sides were very clear.  Lab Fairy plunged into work. Lab Fairy's target was a fridge full of antibodies. On previous  Lab Fairy  assignments,  there were containers  mostly  with chemicals, therefore dealing with the new type of inventory items made it even more interesting and exciting!
