New group setting

We've added a new feature to the group creation process called "Secure Group".

Data within groups on ResearchGATE has always been secure, but this feature makes it easier for a group to be certain that only specific people can access group data.



If you select this option, your new group will have the following properties:

1) Only administrators can invite new members to the group

2) Only group members can access data such as discussions, files, appointments

3) The group name is not displayed in any member's group list

4) The group is not indexed under "Browse Groups" and cannot be found within ResearchGATE
By introducing this feature, we want to make it easy for you to both create groups for your labs, departments and societies, and to keep your data within your walls.
