Add a collaborator to a project

Collaborations on BioData Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges are project dependent. To collaborate, you first need to create a project. Only project administrators can invite collaborators to a project. Collaborators will be added to the project as project members.

To add a new member to a project:

  1. Navigate to the desired project.
  2. Click Invite new members (or Manage project members in case there are already members in the project) on the dashboard of your chosen project.
  1. Begin typing your collaborator's username or their email address. The Platform will autosuggest all users with whom you have previously collaborated.


Adding member to a Controlled Data Project

If you try to add a project member without access to Controlled Data, you will receive a warning message and the member won't be added.

If your collaborator does not have an account on the Platform, they will receive an email inviting them to create an account and join the project. In order to begin working together, your collaborator needs to register on the Platform.


Controlled Data Project members require Controlled Data access

Once your collaborator has registered for an account on the Platform, they will have access to the resources of your Controlled Data Project only if they have access to Controlled Data through the dbGaP.
