How to create and edit a group

Members of the TEPHINET library site are allowed to create groups.

Groups are places for sharing documents/files, discussing topics, and posting information.  They are intended to advance collaborations for improving public health.


The video below walks through the process of setting up a group. The basic steps are:

  1. Login and navigate to the TEPHINET library
  2. Click on "Groups" to go to the Groups List page.
  3. Click on "Add a new group" to create a group.
  4. Fill out the form for adding a new group.
    • Add a name (required)
    • Add a brief description (required)
    • Add a mission statement (optional - you can write more here and add styles)
    • Set the group type
    • Set the default group language
    • Set the country if the group is located or headquartered in a specific country
    • Add tags to indicate keywords or ideas for your group
    • Set the URL or allow the "automatic alias"
  5. Click save

Note: If you ever edit the name of your group while "automatic alias" is checked, your group's URL will change.  This can be confusing for users, because they might have bookmarked your group or they may have shared a link to your group with colleagues.  To avoid this problem, uncheck the "automatic alias" box if you change your group name.
