The Agreements Network is a solution to create, share, and publish agreements between network institutions, all electronically. When a new Agreements client joins the Network, they will receive a message to let them know that their existing agreement partner already exists in the Network, allowing the two to connect. You need to be a part of the Network to utilize the Agreements: Nominations function.
Navigating to Agreements Admin > Network provides the admin with the configuration options for the Agreements Network.
"Join to Terra Dotta Agreements Network" allows you to add your higher education ID (a URL identifier when working with international partners, "christinam-test.terradotta.com" in the screenshot), and determine what details you wish to make available and share with others.
The Network contact receives notifications when
- a partner shares a proposal or agreement via the Network
- a decision has been made on a nomination sent to a partner
Erasmus Without Paper (EWP) Members Included in the Agreements Network
Erasmus Without Papers members are now automatically included in the Agreements Network! You can view all EWP members and the details they have shared, making agreement creation easier and more streamlined. In turn, you can publish your own agreements to the EWP network by clicking 'Publish in Erasmus' in the 'Network Information' section of the configuration options.
Sharing Agreements with Partners Via the Network
Quickly and efficiently share agreements with your partners with the new "Send to Network" feature. Sharing via the Network provides for easy collaboration with partners while allowing for a more seamless Nomination process.
Navigate to Agreements > Agreements. Clicking the box at the top, to the left of "Partner", allows you to select all agreements on that page, while clicking the box to the left of an agreement selects that particular agreement.
Once a box is checked, the "Select an Action" dropdown appears. Filtering is honored when sending agreements to the Network.
From the dropdown, select "Send to Network".
Once clicked, a modal appears where you can add an file to be sent to the partners listed in the agreements, as well a comment. If there are partners selected that are not in the Network (denoted by a prism-like hexagon to the left of the partner name), a message appears at the bottom of the screen, notifying you of this.
