Linking Organizations to a Project

If one or more institutions associated in some way to your project have created an Organization on, then it is possible to link them to the Project. This will make the Project to appear on the Organization's page. In addition, you can decide adding the Linked Organization to the Stakeholders list of your Project.

Example of an Organization's landing page listing four Projects to which it is linked to.

A search field will appear ③. Start typing the name of the Organization you wish to link to the Project. While typing, results start to appear. In case there are no results, the organization you are searching for most probably does not have an entry on

While typing, first results will appear.

Click the Link Organization button of the chosen Organization to link it to the Project.

If you are a member of the selected Organization, the linkage will be immediately active. If not, members of the Organization will need to authorize the procedure.

Authorization required if you are not an Organization's member

If you are not a member of the Organization, you will have to request an authorization for linking it. A popup will warn you about this.

By confirming the request, an email is sent to the owner of the Organization. The Organization will show up on your Linked Organizations list, but the linkage will still not be active. An info box shows the request status.

Once the linking action has been authorized by an Organization's member, the info box disappears and the linkage is active. If it was declined, the Organization is unlinked from the Project and the entry removed from the list.
