UITS provides several secure services that allow Indiana University students, faculty, and staff work on documents and share files with IU collaborators and others who are not affiliated with IU.

To collaborate on documents or share files with IU collaborators and others who are not affiliated with IU, use:

To share files with collaborators at IU only, use any of the services listed above. Alternatively, depending on the nature of your work, you may be able to use:

  • RFS: The Research File System (RFS) offers IU researchers ARCHIVED: project spaces for collaborative projects (e.g., research teams). All users in a project space group have access to that area, and can therefore exchange files and collaborate. Group account owners can tailor access rights for individual users within their project spaces. Projects involving collaborative research conducted for a year or longer qualify for RFS project space. You can create an RFS account for yourself or your group. To request a project space, email Research Storage.
    File sharing with collaborators outside of IU is technically possible using RFS, but a faculty or staff sponsor would have to request affiliate accounts for the non-IU collaborators. See Sponsor a computing account for an IU affiliate.
