Adding a new cataloguer/member

Adding a new cataloguer/member

What's that? You've recruited an extra set of helping hands to your cataloguing team? Congratulations. Cataloguing is a big task, so it is important that you have a strong team of cataloguers who can carry the workload and organisational knowledge.

To create a new user, you will need to invite your new cataloguer to create an account with Victorian Collections. To do this, go to the Organisation menu and select Members. 
Please note: Only users with the Update members permission can access the Members permissions page

In the upper right corner, select Add Member. Enter the email address of the new cataloguer you wish to add to your organisation and set up permissions using the toggle buttons. Select Invite new cataloguer to join and they will then be prompted via email to create an account and set a password.

You can track the status of your invite in the Members page, where a bubble to the right of the new member's name will read "Invited" until they have set up their account.
