Sharing

How will connecting work on the new platform?

Are connecting and sharing the same thing?

What information is shown through sharing?

What if I do not want anyone to see my module?

Will everyone with a login to my account be able to manage sharing?

If I had an existing Higg account, will my connections remain?

What ways can we search for modules we'd like to have shared with us?

Can I request modules in bulk if I work with hundreds or thousands of facilities?

Our account Admin asked me to share our module. Can the Admin grant the editor/verifiers permission to share?

How will connecting work on the new platform?

Connecting, which is now called sharing, will be simpler on the new Higg.org platform. Now that all factories and brands have their own accounts, you can directly send and receive invitations to share modules to other accounts via the sharing page.

Are connecting and sharing the same thing?

Connecting is now called sharing because it refers to sharing modules. Accounts are no longer "connected." Instead, modules are "shared." You can choose to share your module with other accounts each year. You will now have the option to share modules for specific years rather than sharing your entire module history with any account you have accepted.

What information is shown through sharing?

Only your posted modules will be shared. You will be able to view all module answers and scores, as well as any supporting documentation that has been uploaded. 

What if I do not want anyone to see my module?

You can approve or decline any sharing requests. You are in full control of whether you share with another account and will never be forced to share data without your approval.

Will everyone with a login to my account be able to manage sharing?

Only users that are admins can manage sharing. Verifiers and editors will not be able to view or manage your sharing.

If I had an existing Higg account, will my connections remain?

Yes, your connections will be transferred into the new platform for past modules and you will be prompted to confirm you want to share with all those same accounts for the 2017 cycle.

What ways can we search for modules we'd like to have shared with us?

You can search for another accounts' modules by account name, Higg ID number, and/or email address. You will also be able to select which module year you would like shared with you.

Can I request modules in bulk if I work with hundreds or thousands of facilities?

Yes, you will be able to upload a .csv file that lists all accounts to which you would like to send sharing requests. When you upload your list of facilities, Higg.org will match your list against Higg ID or account name and send a sharing request to all existing accounts. If you upload a factory that does not match an existing Higg.org account, you will be prompted to send them an invitation to register.

Our account Admin asked me to share our module. Can the Admin grant the editor/verifiers permission to share? 

Roles cannot be edited. To grant sharing permission, the user must be updated to Admin.

Will scores be applicable for a longer period or yearly?

We recommend a yearly review.
