Adding and removing project members

This guide is aimed at...

  • Researchers

Before you start...

You need to have registered a project with the Research Data Storage Service (RDSS) in order to be able to access the storage. If you would like to do that please read the Research Data Storage Service overview for details.

To Start

To start adding members to your project, please visit our RDSS web administration portal (You need to be connected to the UCL VPN if you are working off site)

Adding members to your project

Only PIs and Administrators can add and remove members

After logging in, you will see the projects you belong on. Clicking on the project title of the project you want to add/remove members, you will be brought to a project detail page where you will see information about the project. Click edit project, you can then add members by typing in their name, username or email address in the section labeled "add a new project member". To remove a user, just click the red x. Click submit update to save changes.

Adding External Collaborators

Only PIs can invite external collaborators

If you want to add someone from outside UCL as a project member and they do not already have an External Visitor account, or are not registered for RDSS, please visit the External Visitor Invitation webpage where you can invite them to join UCL as an External Collaborator.

The External Collaborator will need to activate their account before you can add them to an RDSS project. Once they activate the account you will recieve an email to confirm so you can then add them as a member to your project as explained in the section above.
