Using the Create a Top Level Folder Form in SAFER
This form is used to create an empty top-level folder in your SAFER Share and assign Stewards to it. This form is available to anyone with a Northwestern NetID who has access to the SAFER share where the new folder will be created.
- Log in to the Create a Top Level Folder form with your NetID and password.
Using the Organization drop-down, choose the Organization that the folder will belong to.
Using the Share drop-down, choose the SAFER share that the folder will be created in.
Enter the name of the new folder in the New Folder Name field. This will be the name of the folder as it appears in Box, and can be changed later.
- Note that by submitting this form, you will become the first Steward of this folder.
Enter a New Folder Purpose, which will be saved for future reference. This will not appear in Box.
Enter the name of the person who will become the second Steward in the Search by Name field and select their name from the drop-down menu.
Optionally, add collaborators and their access levels.
Click Submit to complete the form.
- Do not include sensitive data in the folder name, as top-level folder names can be visible in other areas of the SAFER application.
The form will be sent to the second Steward for approval. Upon approval, SAFER creates and registers this top-level folder with the two Stewards and adds any collaborators outlined in the form.
