Tags are not visible in printed or exported versions of your notes. You can consider tags in LabLog as meta-data that you can add to your notes to help you with project management and contextual information. For example if you plan to re-assign an experiment to a colleague after certain progress has been made you can create a tag named “Reassign after 90% complete”. This helps you find all experiments due for reassignment based on the tag. Another use for tags is in project management where you tag multiple experiments and protocols with the name of a project or its due date. This enables you to link and track everything that belongs to the specific tag.
