How do I set up GraphPad Prism to work with my eNotebook?

To integrate GraphPad Prism with your eNotebook so files can be directly opened from or saved into it, complete the following process:

GraphPad Prism for PC: Once GraphPad Prism is installed, save this configuration file into the folder where you’ve saved Prism. Depending on the version of Prism you are running, this will be different but may look like C:\Program Files\GraphPad\Prism 6. Restart the application.

GraphPad Prism for Mac: Create a directory in Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/GraphPad/Prism/Config and save this configuration file to the directory. Restart the application.

Note: There are potentially other Library directories under Macintosh HD/Users//… or Macintosh HD/Users/Shared/…, if you encounter issues, check that the configuration file has not been put into these locations.

Logging in, opening files and saving files

As a UniKey is needed to login to the eNotebook, you will need to generate a password token in order to connect Prism to your account. To do this for both Windows and Mac computers:

  1. In Prism, click File menu > LabArchives > Open a LabArchives file, then Login to LabArchives
  2. In LabArchives, select your Name (top right), then from the drop-down tab select LA App authentication
  3. Copy the displayed email address and password token
  4. Paste the email address and password token into the login box then select the Stay signed in checkbox
  5. Click Login

A window panel will appear where you can select from your eNotebooks and open any GraphPad Prism file stored there. If you make changes to this file and click File menu > Save, you have the option of sending a new version of the file to your eNotebook inbox (therefore making a new entry) or saving over the previous version of the file (writing over the previous entry).

If you have created a new file in the application rather than opening it from you eNotebook, you must first save the file to your computer. You can then save it to your eNotebook by clicking File menu > LabArchives > LabArchives It. The file will appear in your eNotebook Inbox, where you can move it to any where in your eNotebook that you choose.
