Apps Introduction

The Apps tab lets you activate extra features of RSpace to suit your needs. These features include external file storage services such as Box, OneDrive, Egnyte, GoogleDrive and Dropbox; sample management (eCAT); chemistry support (Chemaxon sketcher/ chemical search); messaging (Slack and Microsoft Teams); data repositories such as Figshare, Dataverse and DSpace; and publication repositories (Mendeley). By default, these features are not enabled, so you need to opt-in to enable them.To activate  any of the these features, click on the Apps tab:


Click on any icon to learn more about how the feature works, and to enable or disable the feature.

If you're on an RSpace Enterprise instance and some or all of these icons are greyed out, it’s because the RSpace administrators for your installation don’t make that feature available. Please request to them to make the feature(s) available.

Below is a screenshot for the Box Integration App.


Once activated, the functionality is  immediately available.

All of the activated apps will place an icon in the editor toolbar so that you can use them while editing a document or notebook entry. Here is a screenshot showing all Apps enabled:
