How do I add non-Tufts University accounts to a Project site?

Project site Organizers can add non-Tufts University accounts to a Trunk project site.

Do not add a Non-Tufts account to a site if the user has a Tufts University account.

Trunk will send the person an e-mail letting them know their Trunk username and password. Their Trunk username is their non-Tufts email address. When they log in to Trunk a link to your site will be listed on their display under their More Sites button. They will be able to change their password by clicking on the Account button located on their Workspace site.

Project Site Organizers can add user accounts to a Trunk Project site with the following roles:

  • Guest: Primarily read-only access. This role is recommended for observers of the project.
  • Organizer: This role has the full set of permissions and is allowed not only to build and manage a project site, but also to assign roles, and change permissions. It is similar to an Instructor role on a course site.
  • Participant: Can participate fully (including editing) in the resources tool, read and write access to all other tools. It is similar to a Student role on a course site, however Participants can upload files to the site Resources tool.
