Collaboration and connections

The DCRGraphs.net portal facilitates collaboration among co-workers and connections. Graphs can be shared in various ways.

Your co-wokers and connections

You can get a list of co-workers and connections by choosing the Connections menu.

Your Connections

The page will show your connections.

Connections

Adding and finding co-workers

You can add and find connections from the “Invite Friends” panel as shown below:

Adding Connections

Friends can be invited searching them by name, or you can enter their email address to invite them to the portal.

Ensure your profile is shared

A pre-requisite for others to be able to find you is that your profile is searchable. Due to European GDPR privacy issues we cannot make your profile searchable by default. When you sign-up to the portal you can choose to make your profile searchable or you can change your profile as sketched below:

Edit profile

Ensure the “Make my profile public searchable” is checked.

Sharing graphs

Graphs can be shared directly or through categories.

Sharing a graph direcly

Graphs can easily be shared with connections enabling them to view and edit the graph, try simulations etc. Simply select the share panel

Share a Graph

and click Share With Connections.

Search friends to share graph

Direct dialogue is also possible in the portal, simply by using the built-in activity stream, a social media type of blog similar to what you see on Facebook.

Making a graph public

You can also choose to share a graph with everyone in your organisation by making the graph public.

Making a graph public

At the moment you can share graphs public in the Public organisation. That capability will be removed at some point.
