Create an organization on Ion Reporter™ Software on Connect

The first user on Ion Reporter™ Software on Connect can create an organization. An organization is more specific than an institute name. It defines a group of users who work together and share samples, data, analyses, and results.

When you create an organization, you automatically are the first administrator-level user of that organization. You can then begin entering or importing data into the software and invite other Ion Reporter™ Software on Connect users to your organization to share data and results. To join an existing organization, see Join an existing Ion Reporter Software organization on Connect.

You can belong to only one organization at a time. If you are already a member of an Ion Reporter™ Software organization on Connect, you will not be able to create a new organization until you are removed as a user from your current organization.
