Groups



Groups work like email distribution lists, helping you efficiently share documents with students, colleagues, friends, family members, … anyone.

A list of your Groups — those you've created and those you've been invited to — is on the right hand side of your “My Library” page. You can have as many Groups as you find useful.


Create Group

Clicking on an existing group's name under the “My Groups” header takes you to a Group Page which shows you who the active Group members are, if there are pending members (people invited who haven't yet activated their account), and what documents the Group has been invited to.


Group Page


To create a new Group, click on the "Create Group" button under the “My Groups” header; from this page you choose a name for the Group and (optional) a description:

Create Group

Using Groups lets you:

  • Compile a list of people to invite just once and then reuse it over and over. You invite a Group (if you're a member of that Group) to a document by typing in its name, the same way you'd Invite) a person.
  • Give new people added to the Group immediate access to all the documents previously shared with that Group, eliminating the need to compile past documents. Note: the Group's administrator can remove obsolete or sensitive documents from Group access at any time.

A Group's administrator invites people to the Group by clicking the green “invite” icon near the top left of the Group page. The administrator can also:

  • email a group member by clicking the envelope icon
  • remove a person from the group (via the gray “minus sign” icon)
  • “promote” a group member to be a co-administrator
  • delete the Group.
