How can I change my group contact and address information?
Your group contact and address information in Archie must be kept up to date in order to ensure that the details display correctly on the Cochrane website. The list of Geographic Groups and linked map are populated from the group properties in Archie.
Check Cochrane's list of Geographic Groups to see if your group’s contact information is up to date and your website URL is listed.
If changes are needed, log in to Archie and follow the instructions in Editing a group.
Please note it may take up to 24 hours for all changes made to show up on other websites, which are fed from Archie. If you edit your group information and the changes do not display after 24 hours, or your location does not update on the group map, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Which group roles should I allocate to people involved with my group?
