There are several ways of collaborating and sharing data in the ELN. If you want to collaborate with other lab members you can give them access to your experiment by adding them as a collaborator to an experiment, but you can also set up a project group. You can use a project group to group projects with studies and experiments and share them with collaborators both inside and outside the lab. Navigate to Project Groups in the Configuration menu and click Add Project Group.




Enter the name of the Project Group and click Create Project Group. The user that creates a project group is assigned as administrator of the project group. Administrators can add or remove users in the project group. After the creation of the project group, you can edit the project group to add project group members and assign administrators.




The added project group will be listed and you will be added as a member of the project group. An administrator can add users to a project group who are a member of the lab and also users who are working in another lab within the same system, thereby enabling the option to share data and collaborate across labs. Note that users will have the same rights in the project group as in their own lab except for administrators.






The added project group will become available in the experiment browser to all people that are listed as a member of the Project Group so that they are able to view and add and data to experiments in projects and studies added in the project group.
