Can I import a Word document as my protocol?

Not quite - you can upload your Word document to a protocol step as an attached file.

If you would like an existing Word Document to become a protocol template, your best bet is to author each step individually. This allows you to take advantage of SciNote's different interactive protocol step types.


If you would still like to include the original Word.doc, you can attach the file to a Protocol Step. This can be done inside the Protocol Templates or inside the Protocol section of a task card. The below example mirrors the action in a task card, however the same action applies for the Protocol Template. 

  1. Enter your task card and create a step by clicking New Step
  2. Click the Insert drop-down and select Add file
    word file
  3. Drag and drop the file you would like to upload or click Upload a file from your PC. 
    Upload a Word Doc
  4. Choose a file from your computer and click Save.
