Important Points to remember:

  • Running Title is what will be used to locate the project within the CNDA.
  • It can be confusing for users if the Title and Running Title are very different.
  • The Alias fields are used for alternate ways to indicate this project.
    • Alternate spellings and options that include spaces instead of underscores and vice versa are helpful additions to the Alias field. It ensures that even if the name is input a bit different from the Running Title, the scans will still be assigned to the correct project.
    • See Adding an Alias for further details
  • Project Accessibility determines who can view the project.
    • Public: all users can view data and download it.
    • Private: only users with specific access to the project can view and download it.
    • Protected: all users can see the project Title and Description. Only users with specific access to the project will be able to access data and download it.
      • Selecting Protected on a project makes it easy for a user to request access from project Owners. See box below:
