Managing information sharing with groups

Restricting or sharing information

Any user, both admin and non-admins, can create a group. When you create a group, you become the manager of that group.

The group will not contain any private information from your organisation like tags, notes, alerts, satellite imagery, or organisation user information. In the future information sharing options will be expanded and some will require admin permissions.

Sharing areas when setting up a group

When you create a group you can choose to copy private areas from your organisation. Once created, you can add or remove these from the group details tab in group settings.

Copying tags between groups

If you would like to use an existing tag in your new group, select the tagged vessels in your organisation and when you switch to your new group they will still be selected for tagging.

Managing your access to groups or organisations

You don’t need to log in and out of your organisation or groups. The organisations and groups menu item at the top left hand corner will let you move between them.

Anyone can leave a group, unless they are the only manager of that group. If you are the only manager, you’ll have to appoint a new manager before leaving the group.

You can also leave an organisation, unless you are the only admin for that organisation.

Archiving a group

When you no longer need a group, managers of the group can archive it. You need to be an admin to unarchive a group. When a group is unarchived, all previous members will regain access to the group. If the manager of the group is no longer part of your organisation, the admin who unarchived the group becomes the new group manager.

If you need assistance with leaving an organisation or a group, or deleting groups and associated information more permanently, the Starboard team will be able to support you.
