Register an organisation or group

To register your organisation or group, simply click the button “Register your organisation”.

You need to have a MySALTO user account to register your organisation or group. If you don’t yet have a MySALTO user account, or if you are not yet logged in to existing account, you will first be taken to the MySALTO login page, where you can either log in or create an account. You will then automagically be transferred to the Otlas profile registration page. It’s all a very simple and quick process.

Managing your Otlas profile

Add a project to your profile

If you are logged in to your MySALTO account, you can click the button “Manage your profile” in the Otlas top bar. This takes you to your Otlas profile dashboard, where you see the button “Add a new project”. You can add as many projects as you like. Don’t forget to update the project information whenever you have found a partner (or all partners).

Why should I add a project?

By adding a project you indicate to the world that you actively wish to cooperate with others within a specific theme or form. It makes it easier for potential partners to find you. It can be just a wild idea or a very concrete project ­– it’s up to you. You will plan the project with the partners you find. Most Otlas users want to do a project which can be funded by EU’s Youth in Action programme, but you may use the tool as you wish.

Add a partner connection

If you are logged in to your MySALTO account, you can click the button “Manage your profile” in the Otlas top bar. This takes you to your Otlas profile dashboard, where you see the button “Add a new partner connection”. Click the button and start typing the name of the partner organisation in the text box (at least three letters). Click on the correct name and then on the Choose button. Next, select the project from the menu on which you cooperate and then click Continue. An e-mail is sent to the organisation you chose, and they need to confirm the partner connection if it is the first time that you connect to each other. Either of you can always cancel a connection at any time.

Why should I use partner connections?

A partner connection in Otlas is a way of showing that you intend to cooperate, or have cooperated,  with the connected organisation or group in one or several of your projects. Partner connections can only be made with partners who have an Otlas profile. By using partner connections others can see which organisations or groups that are active projects-makers in the youth field, and if you hesitate to cooperate with a new unknown partner, you can check their partner connections and ask former partners for references.

Please note that the partner connections function was launched on 20 June 2013, so it may take a few months before it becomes widely used.
