Can you tell me some unique features for an ELN that are available with the MyLabBook approach?
The features that MyLabBook has compared to other ELNs derive from the WordPress plugins. Plugins can provide the following features that are not found in most ELNs.
- Maps and Geo-locations
- Social Networking features, including groups, profiles, chat, and messaging
- Easy embedding of audio, video, sophisticated image display, and inline image editing
- Tracking of web page usage and analytics
- Commenting ability
- Mobile capabilities
Some plugins include several of these capabilities in the same plugin. For example, the Directories Pro plugin that we document in our knowledge base provides a directory, maps, images, video, integration with social networking plugins, commenting, custom post types, and backup and restore capabilities.
