Private records

eCAT provides a collaborative environment where the entire lab can work together, but we understand that privacy is a necessary component of collaboration!

So with eCAT we have made it easy to keep your work private, e.g. when the record is just for you, when the project you are working on does not involve other lab members, or when you are working on something that's not ready for others to look at. Of course you benefit from the full power of eCAT's permissions system so if you want to let one or more colleagues view one or more of your records you can do that. And if you decide later on that you want to give view and or edit permission on a record which previously was private to everyone in the lab, you can do that too.

eCAT is a flexible, easy to use electronic lab notebook that lets you add structure to your lab's research data in an integrated collaborative online environment.
