Projects often involve people who normally cannot use sciebo because they are not members of a participating institution. However, it is precisely here that a simple exchange of data is important. For this reason, there are guest IDs for these cases, which you as an employee can create yourself for your project partners.
The guest's e-mail address used for the invitation serves as the guest identifier. The sciebo web interface can be accessed by guests via gast.sciebo.de. Desktop client and apps can be used by guests for synchronisation. Guest IDs are valid for 12 months, renewal is possible. To do this, the guest must contact their sponsor, who can carry out the renewal via my.sciebo. After expiry, the guest ID is blocked and deleted after a further 3 months.
Guests can only use sciebo in a limited way, i.e. they do not have their own storage volume and cannot actively share data. To collaborate with guests, sciebo users must first share files and/or folders with them and give them the desired editing rights. Guests cannot create files or folders in their home directory, but only in folders shared with them. In this way, guests use the storage volume of the sciebo users who share with them.
Please note that it is not allowed to create guest IDs for members of the participant institutions.
Note: If the guest has already been invited by someone else, you will automatically become the new sponsor. In this case, the previous sponsor will also be notified.
In order to use your guest account, you must first set your password:
You can perform the following actions here:
The prerequisite for sharing is that the guest has accepted your invitation and activated his or her account. The guest will only appear in the address book of the sharing dialogue the day after activation and only if he or she has not deactivated this feature.
