Making the most of DMPonline

23 April 2020 | Zoom online meeting

The DCC DMPonline service now has over 50 institutional subscribers. Many are actively supporting the use of the tool on campus and provide inspiring examples in the monthly knowledge exchange blogs and drop-in sessions to share key lessons learned. 

This online workshop reflects on some of the main topics we see raised on the helpdesk – queries about customising the front end of the tool, using the API and applying the new conditional questions feature. There will also be the opportunity to learn about common administrator tasks such as editing templates and guidance, as well as chatting with DCC staff about your needs.

Instructors: Sarah Jones, Magdalena Drafiova, Sam Rust, Ray Carrick
