What happens when I add someone who doesn’t have a labfolder account to a group ?

If you enter an email that was not registered for a labfolder account, an invitation will be sent to that email. The recipient can create an account and join the team through the following steps:

  1. Open the email titled Join your labfolder team! from system@labfolder.com
  2. Click on the Join the team! button in the middle of the message. The link to registration page will be opened in a new tab.
  3. Fill out the information tabs. The tabs with an asterisk in the corner are required.
    Confirm creating an account by clicking the SIGN UP button.
  4. You’ll be redirected to a page with a confirmation message. Clicking the GO TO THE GUIDE button will direct you to the guide page, where you can learn the basic features of the labfolder ELN.
  5. To accept the invite and join the group, the new account will need to be logged into. There are two ways to log into the new account:
    • 5.a Open your Email:
      Open the email titled Welcome to labfolder from system@labfolder.com
      Click on the Login to your account button in the middle of the message. You will then be taken to your new labfolder account in a new tab.
    • 5.b Open a new tab:
      Go to eln.labfolder.com.
      Enter your account information (email and password) to login.
  6. Once signed in navigate to Manage>Groups.
  7. Click on Invitation pending on the top panel. The admin who invited you and the group that you will join are stated in the dropdown window. Also, a warning will display if the admin of the group prevents private projects.
  8. Confirm by clicking the Join group button.
