Note: If you are attempting to add a new administrator that already has a Research Logix Profile, the system will automatically identify that person by their email address to avoid duplicating a user.


Step 2: Assign Permissions

After creating the Research Logix Profile, you'll want to assign the permissions for the user. There are several components within the platform, so you can tailor the access by managing the user's permission(s). To manage permissions, locate your newly created profile, select Actions, and then select Permissions.

Each of the permissions will have a description to help you determine what that permission will allow. After selecting the permission(s), click Save.

The user will receive a message from Research Logix ( If this is a brand new user, the email will contain a temporary password for them to log in if they are using Research Logix authentication. If you are currently using University Single Sign On (SSO), the user will be able to use that option to sign in for the first time. In order for this to work correctly, you will need to create the profile with their university email address to appropriately link the Research Logix Profile to a university profile.
