Collaboration Groups are a special construct in RSpace in which two existing LabGroups create a formal connection and therefore a new hybrid group containing some or all the members of the original pair. The essential requirement for this to happen is agreement between the two PIs of the LabGroups concerned – the collaboration can only occur as s direct PI to PI contact.
Working in a Collaboration Group
If you are a member of a LabGroup, and your PI creates a collaboration, then you become a default member of the new Collaboration group. You have access to it on your Profile page and in your groups page ‘Change’ list. You can easily share with individuals in the collaboration or with everyone in the joint group in your sharing dialog. And, documents shared with the new group will automatically appear in your Shared folder under a specific Collaboration Groups folder.
