Figshare for Institutions — Engagement and Training Overview

Our admin support guides are moving.

We will be updating and maintaining our support documentation for Figshare repository administrators and managers in our support portal as of June 2024. To ensure you are viewing the most up to date content, please visit our support portal and ensure you are logged in with your institution email.

You can find all our updated admin guides in the support portal:


There are a number of on-demand training materials available in a variety of formats for end users and administrators.

- End user guides
- End user video playlists
- Admin user guides
- Admin user video playlists

All user guide articles are updated after each major development release and are therefore always up-to-date. In addition, administrators are provided with comprehensive release notes demonstrations which are carried out approximately every three months. The Product Director demonstrates the new releases and administrators can ask questions directly. We also provide written release notes, which include upcoming features for the next release. 


Once your production environment is live, you’ll be provided with a walk-through of our community and engagement documentation which includes an example engagement plan, tips for organizing a launch event, case studies, marketing materials, example data, and more.

It also includes details of community-related activities and platforms including regional user group meetings, our Slack community, support site links, and more.

Ad-hoc services

Custom online training can also be delivered ad-hoc to research groups or individuals as needed. These dates can be decided closer to the time and should be communicated to the Project Manager. A quote will be provided once details are known. Please find indicative pricing below:

  • £300 for half a day (online)
  • £800 on-site day training
