Timeline lets you keep track of your project activity

Timeline tracks when files or folders are added to your project, when notes are created, and when you star important files.

It’s a useful tool for finding files you created or worked on at a specific point in time. It’s all about saving you time and helping you keep track of everything.

Snapshots give you the security that your project is backed up

Snapshots take a backup across an entire project at a given point in time.

With snapshots you can restore previous versions of files seamlessly.

Snapshots are taken automatically and can also be taken manually at important points in your research workflow, such as when you submit a paper to a journal or identify interesting results in an experiment.

Add notes, star important items and preview files while you work

Notes can be used for whatever you like - to remind you of your experiment set-up parameters, as to-do lists, for describing what a file actually is, or for anything else you can think of.

Your notes are tagged to your files and added to your timeline making searching for things even easier.

Stars help you to distinguish important files and the preview feature allows you to quickly and visually scan through your files.

Organised file structure makes you feel more in control

Your files are stored in a structured hierarchy of projects and collections within a handy drive on your desktop, helping you stay organised with your research data.

You can access files from your computer's search or other applications, and easily share or synchronise your files with remote backup options.

Searching for any file type or through your notes is easy.
