Managing Users for Repository Spaces

Users can be assigned to course spaces and other user's spaces in the repository. When adding users to the spaces, the users roles are assigned for that space.

This page shows an example of a repository space for teacher documents. We will add a user to this space. Managing users for a user space is done in the same way, except we would be starting from a User space instead of the Teacher Document space.

The following image shows the space Teacher Documents. Next we'll go to the More Actions menu, scroll down the list, and select Manage Space Users as shown in the next image. The View Details link from the same drop down menu will have a list of actions available also.

Manage space users link

A new screen opens, Manage Space Users 'Teacher Documents'. To the right of this is the Invite link marked by the red arrow in the following image. Select the Invite link to manage users in the space.

Listed users of a repository space

The users added to this space will be able to access this folder when they login to the repository. This folder will not be displayed in user's space, but users can search for the space or locate it on the Company Home screen in this instance.

The search window is located in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Use the drop down menu to narrow the items searched or to perform an advanced search.
