Creating a project and adding team members

Note: this article applies to administrators of new Guardian deployments.

Before team members can install the Guardian device or respond to incidents in the Guardian app, they must be added to a project.

Creating a project

A Project is a place to collect and organize your recordings into groups, for example, species or geological criteria. 

To create a project, the project owner must log in on Arbimon

After logged in, you will be navigated to My Projects. My Projects page will show all the projects which you are the project owner and have been added as user or other roles. Click on the + New Project to create a new project.

Then enter Project name, provide a short project description and designate it as Public or Private. Then press Create project. 

Note: The project name must not have been used by others.

Public - Anyone can see the project and listen to the recordings; general public cannot modify any part of the project. 
Private - The project is not displayed for the general public. Only invited users can see the project and have access by their roles.

When the project was created successfully, you will be navigated to My Projects page. Click on your new created project to open the summary page to view project summary and continue with the project.

Adding team members to a project

On the project page, click "Settings" link on the navigation bar at the top

Then click on "Users" link on the left sidebar

On the Users page, click on text field and write a user's email or a part of it.

If user is registered in the platform you will see a dropdown with suggested users. Click on user name / email to chose user and then click on "plus" button to add user to the project.

Once user is added to the project you see user in the list of Project Users with a default "User" role.

You can change user role by clicking on role dropdown and selecting a different role.

If user is not registered in the platform, you will see a note "No users found" with a button to invite user. Click on "Invite" button and you see a popup with user invitation form.

Put user's firstname and lastname and click on "Invite".

Once you see this user in "Project Users" list, the user receives an invitation email to address which you specified in the form. Please ask user to accept the invitation and set a password. Once the password is set, the user can login into the platform and use shared project.
