Improved dashboard in Research Data Manager

From 10 April, UQ researchers have access to the improved dashboard in the Research Data Manager (RDM) system. This dashboard makes managing your project and associated data easier. 

The RDM helps you manage your research data in line with legal, ethical and funder requirements.

Add collaborators, re-send collaboration invitations, send direct messages and view record history and changes from within a record.

Add collaborators 

It is now easier to add collaborators to your project and re-send invitations as needed.

Send direct messages

Use the messaging service to communicate with your collaborators from within the system. This is helpful when you are working with the same records.

View changes to records

All project collaborators can view the history of, and changes to, project records. This is a useful transparency measure. 

Navigate your records with less scrolling

Update your project metadata more easily, as your project progresses through the research lifecycle, with the streamlined My records.
