Currently, you cannot link an item in a repository to protocol/protocol steps, however, you can link them to all other sciNote elements (project, experiment, task or sample) with the help of smart annotations.
Simply type “#” and sciNote recognizes it as annotation of specific element and creates a permanent link to this element (see the image below).
In addition, you can also create a new column e.g. “Link to protocol”, select an item and click Edit button. Copy the link of your desired protocol, paste it in the new “Link to protocol” field and click Save. For easier understanding see the GIF below.
