Einztein TIP: “OPEN” vs “RESTRICTED” PROJECTS

I’d like to give you some insight as to how we give Einztein members control over project participation, while keeping the knowledge exchange “flowing” as openly as possible.

If you choose “restricted” when creating a project, you get to decide who can join the project and who can’t.

If you see that a project is marked “restricted,” you can “ask to join” the project but it’s up to the project creator/curator to accept the request.

If a project is not restricted, that means any Einztein member can join the project to post or comment. We call these kinds of projects “public.”

Have fun sharing what you know and exploring what you don’t!

    I couldn't agree with this more. A group is not a team. The big point of differentiation is that members of a team have a commitment to each other’s success.

    I agree! It makes so much sense, yet it was an ah-ha moment for me. Words do matter…

    A team is, as someone defined, “all for one and one for all”
