Master Gale Admin

Gale Admin provides tools to configure your Gale resource preferences including authentication, LMS integration, and individual resource functionality. In addition to these tools, you can also view usage reports, including COUNTER 5. Join us to explore the features and workflows of this valuable resource. This session is intended for those who administer or manage their library resources.

Duration: 45 Minutes
Ok, thank you all again for joining

today, we're going to be master in gale admin.

My name is Amber Winters and I'm your gale training

consultant for the day.

So we on the first we're just going to talk about

how you can get access to gale

admin because of course that's always gonna be our first step.

So we'll talk about where you can find it. We'll talk

about how you can actually get in, where you can find

your credentials, all that good stuff.

We'll quickly talk about some of the different features

you're going to find within gale admin. So what you're

actually going to be able to do, how you're going to

be able to manipulate how you access

your resources. your account, all that good stuff

and then we'll spend a good amount of time actually walking

through gall admin. So you're gonna feel of

where, where the all where all of

the different tools and features are. Excuse

me, I'm a little tongue tied today. so

we'll walk you back and then at the very end of the session,

I do have some wrap up information for you

some contact information if you want to maybe take

a deeper dive into things we didn't explore today.

And again, if the questions start to get

a little bit burdensome if we get a lot

coming in, then the questions may just wait

until the end of the session but feel free to pop

them into the Q and A. And if I'm able

to I'll answer them as we move along today.

So first accessing G admin,

so there's two main ways you can get access

so if anyone online is familiar with

the support site.

Instead of remembering a whole another site, you can

actually access the Gale admin site

right from that support site. So if you go

to support dot G dot com,

you hover over tools in our little tool

bar up top here, you'll see gale admin

is an option right there. So this is the first

way you can access if you are familiar with using losing

the support site. we don't want you to have to remember

a second website so you can do it there.

If you just want to go directly to gale

ain, you can just go to admin dot gale dot com.

And then forward right there directly.

If you don't have your credentials yet, that's completely

fine. Stay on the line with us, we're still gonna show you

how to use everything. But if you need

access to those, you can reach out to our tech support

and they can provide you with that information. All

of this will be in your follow up email. So if

you do need to act to reach out to them, you'll

be able to but it's just 1 808


option four. Sometimes. It's just a little bit

easier to send an email just to gale do technical

support at dot com. Either

way they'll be able to get you those credentials so you

can log in. They are different than the passwords

to get into your resources because

they're admin credentials so they give you kind of a different

level of access so you will need those

as opposed to just your standard resource


So let's talk about some of the features here, what

gil admin is actually going to help you do. So first

you're gonna be able to manage your authentication methods.

So if you want to change passwords, maybe you

need to add a password. You can do that here.

You can also include your Ip s. So if

you want to have Ip authentication for your

school district or your library wherever you are,

you can enter in all of the Ip addresses

that are going to be related to your institution

and you'll have automatic authentication that

way. We can also enter in things like

referring URL s

in addition to those authentication methods,

especially if we're talking about schools that having

a K 12 folks on the line. You

can work on your L MS integration

right here on Gale admin. So you'll be able to get

your key in secret. So if you're using

canvas something like that, you'll

be able to pull that right here from Gale admin and we'll take a look

at that. You also have the ability

to authenticate using either google or Microsoft

account. So that's a great way again

if you're at a K. 12 school and

everyone is assigned an account. be it's

google or Microsoft you can actually have them

sign in that way. So by passing your

password you don't have to worry about handing

out a password to all of your students or all of your users.

They can really simply just sign and use

thing google or Microsoft

You can also enter some preferences and we have

some general preferences preferences that are going

to span the entirety of your gale collection.

And we also have some product specific specific

preferences. So if we're talking about

the in context suites, they have their own

preferences that you can narrow down to or

Gale ebooks, you'll also find separate preferences.

So we'll take a look at all of those today. So

you can kind of get a feel about what you're going to be seeing

what you can do.

and you can also view usage on Gale admin.

So gil admin, it's really beneficial

if you're looking for a counter four or counter five reports.

It's also helpful if you want to schedule a report

to be sent to you. So if you're looking for a report

on on a monthly, quarterly, however

long you can schedule that within gale admin

and I will just note here this is not the same

as usage dashboard. A lot of people

are using usage, dash

for now, which is just a little bit different.

It's a little more readily

available. You have some visuals there as well

but if you want counter four or five you're

going to want to use it to

use usage on gale admin.

So we will have that, we'll take a look at that today as

well Now

I just want to go ahead and dive right in. I

haven't seen any questions pop up but as I'm

switching over screens here,

do we have any questions?

Ok? I don't see these. So for the

sake of time I already signed in here. So when

you sign in using your admin credentials, this is

the page you're going to be pulled to and yours

might look a little bit different. You'll see right

here. I just have one account that I

can click into one location. If

you are the admin for an entire school district

or maybe a full public library system,

you may see more than one location

listed here and that's completely fine.

You'll be able to go in and edit each of those

locations individually right here on this


on this left hand side, you'll see I have this little

user administration button here as well.

So you can add a user. So maybe you have

a a new librarian working with you or maybe you have

a tech person you want to be involved on

the admin side of scale, you can actually add

that here for yourself. So you'll be able to put in

our user name and password. All that good stuff.

but I'm not gonna do that today, I'm going to stick with myself

so again I have my one location so I'm

going to select a view at it to change

what's going on with this specific location

here Maybe?

Ok, give me one second here. It looks like I might be

signed in incorrectly.

So I'm gonna go ahead and start

Excuse me for that.

There we go.

Had myself signed in a little bit differently.

So in your standard sign in, when you hit

you edit, this is what you're going to see, is

this first location summary

here. So you have your location name,

which you can change. It's automatically going to populate

to whatever is attached to your account.

So usually it's going to be your school's name,

your district's name, your public library name.

but you can change it. So if you want it to be maybe a little

bit more specific or you just want to change

the organization of it or something like that.

You can do that here and mine just has my name because

it's my personal account, it's not a library's

account, You'll also see your

location ID here. So sometimes you'll

hear that when you're speaking with gale individuals,

maybe if you're building out a gale page

or something like that. If you're trying to get direct URL

s, you may hear the term location ID,

you'll find that here within your gale admin.

scrolling down underneath, you'll have a customer

class and that's going to be filled out for you. So

K 12 Public Academic Mind

enter company because I'm in the company.

but you'll have that created here for you

scrolling down, you can add in your

contact information for gale here.

You'll see you do you are required

to have your city state

all that good stuff, you can have that listed there,

but you can enter in more if you want to keep it here

And at the very bottom of this page you

have this button to access your products.

So this button is actually going to pull you to your

full product menu here. It will take

just a second to load because I have a lot of products on

my account.

And when you sign into this using just your standard

resource sign

in, you'd be taken to this page. So this

is really handy if you want to take a look at all of your

resources.or maybe you want to

forward this to users so they can see all of your

resources as opposed to having

your standard direct links posted, you

do have access to the scale product menu here,

you'll see you have everything posted and this is going

to be different based on what you have access to.

So you might not see all of these, you may see,

you know two or three, whatever you have access

to. That's all you're going to see here.

And on this product menu, I also pointed out, we

include our cross searches here. So if

you want to direct your users to our cross searches

again, it varies what you'll see based on the resources

you have, but that's on this product menu

here as well.

so let's jump back to Gale admin here.

So again, you'll always have that at the very bottom of

the page that's access your products.

now sticking with this toolbar I'm kind of just gonna

work from top to bottom here today.

Our next option is this edit database

subscription. So this is really just going to

allow you to see what you currently are subscribed

to, what you've subscribed to

in the past. You don't see a start

end date for me because it might set up a little bit

differently, but you will see your start and end dates

here, so you'll see all of the resources you have.

and you'll have some additional information here that I don't have

but you can take a look and just see that as

needed. Again this is just a a visual view.

You won't be able to renew or anything else

like that. I'm Gale admin, this is

just letting you see those if you do need to renew a resource

or if you want to maybe learn a bit about

a new resource that you notice you don't have listed

in your current database subscriptions. I

have some contact information for you at the very

end of this session to some individuals

who can help you out with that.

But moving down from this database subscriptions

page, you'll have your location authentication.

This is a really powerful section and

for a lot of people this is where they spend the majority

of their time with gale admin is making

sure they give their users the best

experience as possible when they're signing

into the resource. Of course we want to try to

eliminate as many barriers to access

as possible while still making sure

that only your users are in fact getting into

the resource. So the first option

is our addition of Ip addresses

click in here, you can add in as many

as you like. You'll see, I can start to add rows here,

and you can put in your, your Ip addresses.

So this again is pretty beneficial for

the K 12

arena where you have your set list

of Ip addresses that are kind of designated

for your school or for your district, you

can pop those in there and when your students click

into different resources now, they're not going to be

asked for a password, We're going to recognize

their Ip address and we're going to auto

authenticate them.

This is a really beneficial way to do that.

Of course, if your students are using

a computer at home or if you're a public library

and they're using their personal computers at home,

we won't be

able to recognize their Ip address because

it's not been entered by you. So at that

point they'll be asked to

enter a password or however or

else you have authentication set up

So here underneath the Ip addresses, this

is where you'll find your passwords, I'm not going to click

in because my passwords in there. but

you can add in multiple passwords if you like. You

can also set expiration dates and passwords,

so maybe you'll want your

your students to have access for a specific amount

of time and then you want to cut it off for a bit maybe

to make edits or whatever it may be. Maybe

you change your password yearly just to make sure

that's no one from the outside is getting

in. You can set it. So your passwords

will will expire after one year and you'll

be able to enter in a new one. You can do that here

So so you've got a few other options here as well. I'm not

going to go into what each of these authentication

options are if they look familiar

to you and you know you want to set them up with Gale

your customer success manager can help you out with

that. You'll have their contact information

at the very end of the session but if

you're looking for something like that you'll find that under

our location authentication

I'm gonna click here into 3rd party though.

So this is where you're going to include your

google authentication or your Microsoft authentication,

What's great is you're just going to put in a domain

name. So as an example as a send gauge

employee, my domain is sunu

dot com. So it's just the very end of

your email. So my email is amber dot winters

at sun gauge dot com. So after that

a sign that's going to be your domain. Again,

this is great for schools or maybe the academic

arena where you have designated

domains, you have designated emails you sent sent

out to your users, you can make it. So

any user who signed in on the platform.

on the the browse window here with

a Microsoft or a google account that

has that domain, they'll automatically

authenticate. So again they won't need a password,

they'll be able to sign in with either google or Microsoft

and be ready to go. So again, it's a nice way to

skip that required password.

It's a nice way to make sure that they're not getting frustrated

when they don't remember their password and can't get in.

underneath that here. You'll see we have a few other

options. So if you're using something like class link

or clever you can pull that right here

underneath that. You'll see I have my L. T.

I. Authentication here. So again this is going

to be your learning management systems

so school G canvas are the big

ones I always kind of think of but also things

like blackboard you'll be able to pull

your consumer key so you'll see that it automatically

populates here for me, my consumer key

and then I can generate my secret. Again,

if you're not familiar with how integrating into an

L MS works and you're not quite sure what

a secret is. Your customer success

manager can help you out with that and I'll give you their information

at the end.

But for my tech individuals who are

on the line or those of you who are going to be working with

tech individuals for the most

part, they're going to know that you're gonna need a secret.

And you can generate that all on your own right here

on this 3rd Party location

authentication here.

and I will pause just for a quick second.

Are there any questions? I haven't seen any pop up

but are there any questions about editing your

location details or about some of our different

location authentication options?


I don't see any. So we'll go ahead and keep rolling then.

So moving down underneath our location

authentication, we have our preferences

section here

and as I mentioned previously, we have both

general preferences that are going to span

your whole gale collection or

we have some product specific preferences.

So let's start off with general here.

So scrolling down a lot of it, there's these are just going

to default to an and you may not even know you can

turn them off. but the first

one is going to be your translation, so it's always

going to default to. Yes, you have

the ability to translate your

resource because generally people do

see that as an important feature.

So it is going to give the option to your users.

You can turn that off if you don't want that option provided.

but again it does default. Yes.

You can also decide what you want, your default

user interface language to be. So

it does default to english if you'd prefer to

have it in spanish, let's say. You can certainly

do that and that is just the platform

so that's all of the tools, the navigation,

all the good stuff. The articles themselves,

will still be in whatever language language

they were published in so many of the times english.

and your users will be able to translate those individually.

But selecting your default interface language

here is just going to make the navigation

whatever language you choose. I'm going to

keep mine as english here

scrolling down here. You see there are a few other options.

I'm not going to go through all of them, but you'll see you

have information if you want to enable

google scholar, all that good stuff. Your language

for google google scholar,

you'll be able to do that here. You can also

choose a default start page. Now,

I think this is pretty handy, so

we always defaulting your start page

as the home. So when your users sign in or when

they authenticate with their IP or their newly

entered google accounts,

they're always brought to the home page just as a

default. If you would prefer, they go

somewhere else. Maybe you want them to go to a

subject guide. Maybe you think that all

of your users should be funneled into the advanced

search first, because you just think that's the best

option for your, your um, audience,

You can do that here. We generally recommend

sticking to the home page at first, especially

for things like in context resources,

just because there's a lot of tools right there on

the home page that can be really handy for your users,

but if you think they prefer something else, you have

the ability to change that right here

under our general preferences.

I keep my full text limited on

by default. So you can turn that off.

The majority of our resources


mostly full text but there are citations

and other things. So if you'd prefer to turn that off, you

can do that here.

you'll see we have citation style. If you're using

a proxy, you can enter that information

here and

then down under here listed on login page

options. So when you your user

kind of falls right on the log in page

where they're going to be asked to either to

sign in with google or Microsoft or maybe they're going to be

putting in a password, you can include your

library information right on that page. So if

they don't know the password, you

can have them reached out to you right there. You'll see you can

put in your web page, your phone number

and your email as well to kind of help

direct them to the right spot here

and again, that's going directly on the

log in page.

Now, underneath those general preferences preference

here, you'll see I have my product specific


and now yours is going to look different based on what resources

you have available. This is my drop down.

So I have all of these resources, I'll be

able to change again, yours will most

likely be different here.

And it looks like we have a question for the default

start page. I don't have a dropdown menu

So Catherine, if you don't see a drop down menu,

then that would be because whatever resources you

have access to don't have

that capability. So I'm not quite

sure what your resource collection is, but

whatever it is, if you don't see an option

that I'm going through today, that just means it's not applicable

to what you have. So if anyone sees

something they can't do on this

on this webinar, it's just because

whatever that feature is, it doesn't it's

not applicable for whatever your resource collection

is. and Catherine

if you do want to discuss that further to see

what resource doesn't allow whatever you're

trying to click into. your customer success

manager again is a great person to reach out to

and they can work with you a little bit more

closely with your actual resource set.

So we'll have that information at the end of this session

for you.

so let's go ahead and click in. I'm going to click into

my in context suite first. I'll click into a couple

of these but our in context

products are are really popular

so I'm assuming a lot of you on the line most likely have

at least one in context product. So this

could certainly come in handy for you. So scrolling down

here, you can choose to select your market

and when you choose a market it's emphasize

emphasizes different pieces of content

when you click into the race source. So I have mindset

to K 12.

and what that means is you'll see, I have the option to show

me here. K 12. It's going to

emphasize the featured content that

we pulled forward. News and magazines

reference and primary sources. While

if I had selected academic,

it's going to first show academic journals

and primary sources and things like that. And

then you'll see we have public listed here as well where

it's going to highlight more featured content

and the news and magazines, general

reference, all that good stuff. So

You don't technically have to edit this but

sometimes it is nice to have this changed

a little bit. So you can make sure your

users are getting to the exact information they need

if you know, your user base really

needs to take a look at those academic journals first

and foremost. You may want to change out

here to this academic version so they

can take a look at that. They'll be kind of directed to

that first on our topic pages.

underneath that. You can change if you're displaying content

or lexa level. So again, this is pretty

K 12 focused. But

if you are a public library or an academic

library using these resources and you think maybe

this is not the most beneficial for my users,

you know, why, why muddy the water? They're not

going to quite understand what a lexa reading

a lexile

level is. You can turn those off

right here.

You can also select the topic

pick list. Again, this is giving you the

descriptions of what all of those are

So you can change that here,

you can choose just a full text limit

in in context only you saw that as a general

preference, you could also get more specific.

So if you just want it for in context,

you can certainly do that.

And curriculum standards,

you could choose to have the honor off in curricular standards

are just a button that appears

on the home page. So if again,

if you're not a K 12 institution,

you might not want to see that at all, it might not be

distracting. You don't need to worry about it, but if it is a little

distracting, you can turn that off

So this is what you're going to see for in context. And

it'll change based on your resources. So if instead

I want to come in here and take a look at gale ebooks,

That's another really popular collection that I'm

sure a lot of you have access to.

I can choose how I want to order my

ebooks if I want to order them by title or by date.

You'll see another great feature here

is defaulting to the book view just

standard when your users click into an

ebook, they're going to see a text version

kind of like an HTML version if

you prefer. They see the nice kind

of native ebook view where they get the

images, they be able to flip through the pages.

You can default to that being turned on.

Again we include content levels and leel reading

measures here. So if you want to take those off, you

certainly can right here.

We'll look at one more. We'll take a look at our Gale

Power search. So that's our cross search.

This is another section that oftentimes

as you utilize quite frequently.

So again, if we want to choose to include

Les we can but what's really

handy on this page is you can choose what is

being searched here.

within your power search and again you're only going to see

the resources here you have access to so

your list might not look like mine.

So I can choose if I only want

my students, let's say I'm working

at a K 12 school. Again I I want

my students to take a look at my in contact resources.

I don't want them searching through one file,

I don't want them searching through. Um

My business resources, I can just

go through here and just click my in context.

So now they are still power searching but they're

only power searching those in context.

Resources that you've chosen.

And again that is our power search. If

you are interested in our power search, we actually have

a fully created webinar for you about that

on our support site. I'll give you that information

later. But that is our cross search and you can't

edit that here on gale admin.

now. Moving down from

preferences, we have our discovery

services option right here and

this again just gives another little

bit of information for you. So if you're

using a specific discovery service

you can get that all organized here. So if you have an open

U. R. O. If you have an interlibrary

loan that you want to get entered

into here

most likely if you're doing this, you have all

of this content available. If

you know, you want to set this up, but you don't have all of

this information, you should be able to find

it from whoever handles your tech or

whoever handles your

kind of virtual resources,

but you'll be able to enter that here and you'll be able to run through

this all on your own.

we also have a customer links button

And this is really nice if you want to kind of

link your users back to a specific

area. So you'll see, I've included our support

site here which is support

dot com and this is going to

populate. I'm gonna jump back to that product

menu I opened up earlier

It's going to populate here where I select

library menu, so it's going to populate on

this product menu. It's also

going to populate in your resources. It's always

going to appear up top here

and you see I have my additional links and I've included

my support site links here. So if

you want to maybe put your library's website,

your library, social media platforms,

maybe you have a lib guide that you want to highlight.

You can throw all of that here on these links

and have that be readily available for your


you'll see we have the option to request to Mark records

but we've actually moved our Mark records to

the support site so they are on demand

ready for you to download as needed. So again

support G dot com, you'll be able to pull

those again as needed. You won't

need to worry about waiting for us at all. You'll be

able to pull those

if you have custom databases you do

find that here. So some institutions may have

custom news or magazine

databases. I don't have any attached to my account.

So we won't take a look at them today but

this will give you information. If you do have

them So

a quick question back in our

discovery here. So

a question about the interlibrary link.

Yeah, so if you're part of an interlibrary loan

system, you'll be able to enter in that information

so your Gil resources will flow back and

forth. So if a user requests um

a piece of content from whatever other library

you're working with, the Gil content

will flow in there and it'll be forward over to them

in the full text or whatever text version we have


We have an ebooks tab here as well.

We have a sub collection manager with,

sub collection manager listed

here that you can use to build sub collections

of ebooks. But we've just recently

built in a nice tool within Gil ebooks

that's going to help you do that a bit more

dynamically. You'll be able to sign directly into Gil

ebooks again, using your admin credentials

and you'll be able to make collections for

maybe specific programs, you're running

specific classes, maybe

for small businesses you want to have your own collections

so you can actually do that within Gil ebooks now

So I prefer, I'd recommend using

that method as opposed to the ebooks but we

do have that option here as well.

Another great feature is going to be our usage

reports here.

so I'm going to go ahead and click into view usage reports.

It's going to pop me up into this different view here

and again, the best


bit of information you're going to find here

are going to be those counter four counter five

bits of content you'll see on the left

hand side here, it automatically populates those

for me. So whichever I need, I can

click into this and get as specific as I need

to. and

it will run this for me. Honestly I don't know how my

usage is so I can't really tell you how this is

gonna look but we'll take a look

here. so

I'll be able to click into this

and it's hopefully gonna run this for me.


You'll see you have a few different options, you have some quick

links. If you're looking for something specific here then

it does download as a spreadsheet.

Let me pull this forward here

and Sherry, yep, I'll show you an example. So this

that I'm pulling up right now is platform usage.

I believe I clicked into counter five

if I'm remembering correctly

So it's just going to show you a quick bit of information

and this is different and I want to mention again than our usage

dashboard which is a little bit more visual.

We have some different charts and graphs available

on our usage dashboard. but this

is if you need those really strict counter

measures of course they are pretty specific.

You can pull those here so you'll see. All of this

different information on top here and

then you'll get the specific metric information.

And again, mine is small

because I'm not getting as much usage

out of my resources but you'll be able

to pull that content and again it is automatically

listed here as an excel sheet for you

Now let me jump back to those quick links here, because

again, I just want to point out as you're using this,

you have the ability to choose how

to run your reports, you can select this or

if you want to schedule reports, maybe you want to get

your counter five.

I don't know,

I get quarterly,

you'll be able to do that. This will show you exactly

how to schedule that information

as I mentioned before. You also have access

to a usage dashboard

and we do have that link here. So this is usually a

little bit quicker and it's a bit more visual.

So if you just want to kind of get your numbers,

maybe you want to see top search terms

in your resources or something like that usage

dashboard a lot of times is going to be a better

situation than using that.

that other usage platform which again

I like to prefer to just use for my counter

reports um this usage dashboard

is the the same

sign in as your gale admin. So you'll see mine authenticated

me because I'm signed into my gale admin

already, but you'll be able to sign in if you

your usage that way

We won't go all the way through that today but

you do have that available for you as well

if I had archives listed here, this will give me

some archival information. I don't

if you do you have access to that.

And my last feature is our help button.

So of course we didn't spend a lot of time

here today.

so if you still have some questions that haven't been answered,

you can take a look at these help files, they're really going to

help you out. Our accounts have some

different hierarchies listed. Mine is pretty

simple. I have one location and that's it.

Yours might look a little bit different. Yours might

have institutions

and location levels.

So if you do have that, you may even have

a consortium level if you're included in

some sort of state consortium. So

if that's the case, you'll see

this is the hierarchy here. So this help

file is going to show you how you can work throughout that

hierarchy and what each of the levels

mean. You

see we have the getting started guide listed here

as well. We have some summary information

if you want to learn a bit more about our authentication

here, you'll see I wasn't able to go through

all of this information but this will give you some additional

details on what each of these authentication

types are.

and you see it goes out for all of them here.

so you could choose any of them to kind of be launched for


Now, that's what I have for you guys today

and I saved quite a bit of time for questions

that you may have. I haven't seen any additional pop

up but um let me go

ahead switch out, give you some contact

information in case you want to learn

some more.

Here we go.

Um and if you do have questions, go ahead and keep popping them

in. But If you do

want to speak with someone a little bit more in depth

about the admin or maybe you want

to talk about your account, maybe how

you could best set up authentication for

your specific user type or for your specific

learning community,

you can reach out to your customer success manager. They

can really help you out with that. their emails

just scale at customer success at

dot com. If you do already know your customer

success manager, they'll feel free to just email them

directly. But if you don't know who it is, you can reach

out there,

You also have access to a sales consultant.

So if you want to talk about any of your resources,

maybe resources, you're interested in that you noticed

when clicking through Gale admin that you didn't actually

have access to either reach out to them directly.

If you don't or if you don't know who they are, you can just

go to support at dot com forward slash

rep finder and you'll be forwarded to

the correct individual and they can help you out.

and I mentioned a few times. We also have a support

site that's really beneficial. Support dot Gale

dot com. So you'll find pre-recorded

webinars on things like Gale admin,

but also on specific Gale

resources. As I mentioned, we have one

specifically for our power search.

We also have some different

Um marketing materials, training

materials, lesson plans, activities,

social media posts, those goes on.

So if you need some additional Gale support

take a look at support dot Gale dot com.

and then I do have here, Excuse

me A training session

survey. If you all have the time to take it,

you can either scan it with your phone if you have a phone

on you or you can just go to dot forward

slash bill training

email. And

then we've got a couple questions here. So

First one, talking about

interlibrary loan. Yeah, Christi

did you have that set up set up, gel can flow just

like your other resources.

Ok? It looks like Catherine has a question

about customer links. So let me just jump back

here to make sure I understand

your question. Let me click back into my

account here.

the customer links.

And let me see here so you can set

these. Currently I have two links but I don't see the

ability to add a row. So Catherine,

you don't have the option here to use this

add row button, you don't see that underneath

the the link. URL

Hm well

Catherine, I'm not quite sure why you don't have that

ad row button.

It's a little it's a little strange. Um

reach out to your customer success manager, they'll

be able to take a look at your specific account,

see why that's not working for you. Um

I would assume it's not an issue related to

your resources because you should be able to add as

many as needed. But um your customer

success manager can go through your specific instance

and see why yours is

acting a little bit differently,


Well, I don't see any more questions popping

up so I'll go ahead and leave you off for the day.

I thank you for being on the line again, if you have

additional questions about Gale admin that weren't addressed

today, feel free to reach out to me or your

customer success manager.

Oh we have a quick question here. Um

Again, if you don't have any questions, feel free to hop off,

I'll be here answering questions. So we have another one.

Can you set power search as default?

So Catherine, I'm assuming you mean

just sending your users to power Search

as opposed to sending them to any specific,

any other resource. Um There's not

an option within gale admin, but

what I would recommend you doing is pull

the. Let

me jump back here,

pull the specific URL just

to power search and then you can post

that wherever you want it to go so you can find

your direct URL s on the support site

or I opened up a few different tabs here.


if I click into Gil Power Search,

you know, you can just pull this direct

URL and you can paste it so um

instead of having individual ones

for, you know,

your biography, your environmental

studies, just use this instead and post

it to wherever you want it to go and then they'll be automatically

launched here

and they can choose what they want to search. There's no

feature right now in gale admin that

will set that up for them, but you can get that

direct. URL just a power search only.

OK, well, I'll let everyone go then.

Thank you again, everyone for being on the line

and hopefully we'll see you in future sessions.
