In april 2021 organiseert het RDM-team van UGent een serie van 3 sessies over data storage. De eerste richt zich op de Project Shares, een opslagplatform van DICT. Twee andere sessies behandelen versiebeheer, elk op een ander platform; GitHub en SharePoint/OneDrive. Het aantal deelnemers is beperkt, dus meld u aan via de onderstaande koppelingen om de vergadergegevens van MsTeams te ontvangen.

 

  1. Working with the project shares – April 19, 2021 at 11.00-11.30

In this session, we will showcase the Project Shares, a storage-platform provided by DICT (UGent) and suitable for the secure storage and archiving of research data.

After a quick introduction, we will show you where you can request such a Share, share it with collaborators, mount it to your computer, effectively use it in your daily routine, but also how to recover data that was unintendedly altered/deleted.

Additionally, we will talk about backups and how to manage these effectively.

  1. Version control in Sharepoint/Onedrive FB – April 22, 2021 at 11.00-11.30

When you work with different versions of a file, it can be a challenge to locate the ‘correct’ version or to know how versions differ from each other. If not done well, it can even be difficult to know which file preceded the other.

The matter is even complicated further when files are kept in multiple locations, and multiple users edit these files. To avoid confusion and safeguard against accidental loss, a versioning system can be put in place.

Do you want to track the history of your research, facilitate collaboration or review, write papers and reports efficiently, get credits for you work and ensure continuity of your work?

Join this session in which we will demonstrate the use of automatic version control with Sharepoint and OneDrive for Business.
