Group and unit areas
There are two different types of cooperation-areas in Medarbetarportalen: group-area and unit-area. They resemble each other a lot and the functionality is pretty much the same in both.
What is the difference?
The difference between group-area and unit-area is how they are created and how the members of each are managed. All staff members can create group-areas and choose which colleagues they want to take part in the group. Unit-areas are created by an administrator at the IT-department, after a request has been submitted from the unit (for example an institute or department). Everyone who is a member of that unit will automatically become a member of the unit-area.
