Adding trusted user in ACRIS

In general researchers are best placed to keep their own profiles up-to-date. In case you want a colleague to maintain your research information for you, never share your credentials!

Instead, you can make your colleague a Trusted user for ACRIS:

Click your profile name at the top right corner of ACRIS → Trusted users → Save

Enter the colleague(s) you want to make your trusted user(s). This way the trusted user will be able to maintain your research information once he or she has logged on to ACRIS with his or her own account.

When you have switched to the other person's profile, the Switch user button turns red. Click the button again when you want to switch back to your own user.
