1. Open a new room

Any CommSy member can open a new project room at any time. After you log in, click "All rooms" in the top menu bar or "List all rooms" on the Dashboard and mouseover "Choose action" to select "New entry". You will be directed to the page “Create new room”. Use this form to enter a name for your room and adjust its general settings (Fig. 1). Specify the title and language of your room.

If you choose the preset standard template, your room will be displayed in the blue CommSy design. The remaining information (term, associated community room, and description) is optional. However, we do recommend that you complete these settings as they will make it easier for others to find your room in the room search. You can change these settings at any time.

Once you click “Save,” you room will be created. From now on, its title will be displayed in your room overview on your CommSy homepage.

To enter your room, click its name on the list, then click the door symbol. You will be taken to the overview page (“Home”) of your project room (Fig. 2). It shows you all recent activity in your room at a glance. The menu on the left-hand side allows you to navigate between the different rubrics in your room (Fig. 2). Click “Materials,” for example, to access the section where you and other room members can upload documents and comment on them.
