You need special rights to be allowed to add a group.
To start usergroups, you must be registered as a usergroup-manager. You do so by contacting the Datamanager per mail.
More about groups can be found in “Group“.
Once you’re registered you can create your own usergroups.
To add a group Open the Group Manager Module.
From your Category choose “Add group”.
A “Group properties” window opens.
A dialog starts to help you through the procedure:
- Both the category and sub-category should be “your-category”, in the case of the example: ilab (in small small caps)
- type the group name of the new group
- Please note that only names in small caps are allowed. You can freely choose the name for the group, which will automatically be pre-fixed by “research”. The reason for this prefix is so that you can distinguish usergroups in the Research Area from the Datapackages in the vault, which are preceded by “vault-“
- the description is optional
Choose “Add group” to save the new group.
