Logging in and group access

Accounts, logging in and getting access to groups

To participate in the trial, you will need to have a user account for the Landcare Gateway and be assigned membership of a particular group. Accounts have already been created for everyone who signed up for the trial at our August workshops in Mudgee and Cowra, but if you would like to join now you can still do so. If you would like to join, the video below shows how to create a user account and password and how to log in.

A useful tip to remember is that the login button is at the very bottom of the screen when you are on the Gateway website (circled in red below).

login

If you want to log out of the Gateway, you need to click on your picture/username at the bottom left of the screen and select “log out”.

If you would like to participate in the pilot project, please create an account using the instructions above and then follow the instructions in the video below to gain access to a particular trial group.

Alternatively, we can set you up with access for the trial if you email your details to Alex Baumber alex.baumber@uts.edu.au

The key details required are:

  • Name (first name and surname)
  • Email address
  • Preferred username for login (default username is firstname.surname)
  • The group that you would like to be a member of

Some groups have already been created for the pilot project including:

Note that you may be prompted for a login if you attempt to access some of these groups due to the present trial phase.

In general, you can also search for groups through the group list at: http://www.landcare.nsw.gov.au/groups

However, the groups established for this trial may not appear on the searchable list during this trial phase.

Group administrators

If you are a group administrator with responsibility for curating content and choosing what gets displayed publicly on the Landcare Gateway, you may need to use more advanced functions. The video below explains how group admins can manage their group’s site.
