To create a new collaboration, click the "New collaboration" button under the tab "Org Collaborations"


You will be shown the form shown to the right. Many fields have a small i icon: hovering over it, will pop up what the field is for.

The form asks you to fill out the settings for the new CO:

  1. Name of Collaboration.
    Try using a descriptive name, so anyone being invited immediately understands what they are invited to, and to what research this is related.
  2. Collaboration logo.
    On the right side of the form, you are asked to add an image for the CO. A good image really helps in using SRAM. Don't have a logo (yet)? Maybe use a service like this to create a simple temporary one
  3. Short name of Collaboration.
    Enter a short name / abbreviation of the collaboration. This short name is used in the platform identifier in case you will connect services using the LDAP protocol.
  4. Platform identifier : automatically generated immutable identifier, created from the short name of the organisation and the short name defined above.
  5. Description of Collaboration.
    Enter a clear description of what this collaboration is about.
  6. Website URL.
    If the research collaboration has it's own website with more information about the collaboration, you can enter the URL here.
  7. AUP - Acceptable Use Policy.
    If the research collaboration has an AUP published on a URL, you can enter the URL here, and we'll show that URL when members are about to become member of your CO.
  8. Disable join requests for this collaboration
    CO-admins can invite members to a CO by email. But upon creating a CO, you can also have a URL that you can publish, for instance on an Intranet or wiki or website to allow people to request membership, so without an invite. By ticking this box, that 'self-invite' URL will be inactive, so no-one will be able to bother the CO-admins with self invites.
  9. Disclose member information
    When checked, the names of members are disclosed to other members
  10. Disclose email information
    When checked, the e-mail addresses of members are disclosed to other members
  11. Organisation of the Collaboration :  immutable, showing what organisation is going to be responsible for this collaboration. This is important for for instance GDPR aspects!
  12. Invitees.
    Enter the e-mail addresses of users that you want to grant CO-admin rights. To find out what a CO-admin is and can do, take a look at CO admins.
  13. Do you want to be an administrator of this collaboration?
    Ticking this allows you to easily select whether you yourself want to be an admin for this new CO.
  14. Message.
    Enter a text that will be displayed in the e-mail invitation we will send to the people you want to invite as CO-admin.
