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:
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- Platform identifier : automatically generated immutable identifier, created from the short name of the organisation and the short name defined above.
- Description of Collaboration.
Enter a clear description of what this collaboration is about.
- Website URL.
If the research collaboration has it's own website with more information about the collaboration, you can enter the URL here.
- 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.
- 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.
- Disclose member information
When checked, the names of members are disclosed to other members
- Disclose email information
When checked, the e-mail addresses of members are disclosed to other members
- Organisation of the Collaboration : immutable, showing what organisation is going to be responsible for this collaboration. This is important for for instance GDPR aspects!
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.
- 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.
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.
