Requests for additional storage space

If you are an administrator of a Sketch Engine multiuser account (site licence) including ELEXIS-funded accounts, you may receive requests for more corpus storage space which require your approval.

ELEXIS-funded multiuser accounts

Default storage space

Each user, irrespective of how they are, will receive a space of 1 million words. This 1 million cannot be taken away from the users.

If a user builds corpora and runs out of space, they can delete some corpora to make space for new corpora. If the user needs a larger space than 1 million words, they can request additional space by clicking a button in the interface. An automatic email is sent to the admin.

Additional storage space

In addition to the 1 million for each user, the institution received a quota of 1 billion words which is not assigned to anybody initially. The administrator can assign this storage space to users who need or request it. It is up to the institution how they go about this, for example, if they introduce some rules for granting extra space.

The extra space can be also taken away from users and assigned to different users. The default 1 million cannot be taken away.

To approve storage space request or reassign space

If you received the request in an automatic email, click the link in the email, review or edit the requested the storage space and click Save User. The new storage space will be assigned to the user and the same amount will be deducted from the institutional 1 billion words.

  • go to Local Administration (icon in the top right corner of the Sketch Engine interface)
  • select the ELEXIS multiuser account (only if you are an administrator of more than one account)
  • search for the user
  • click to open the menu of the user
  • click Edit user
  • change the storage space
  • save the user

The new storage space will be assigned to the user and the same amount will be deducted from the institutional 1 billion words.

If you institution requires additonal corpus storage space on top of the 1 billion quota, make a request in writing addressed to inquiries@sketchengine.eu

Other multiuser accounts with SSO authentication

What is SSO?

If you use your institutional or corporate login details to log in to Sketch Engine, your account uses SSO authentication. That means that you do not have a separate password to log in to Sketch Engine.

Default storage space

Each user, irrespective of how many, will receive a space of 1 million words. This 1 million cannot be taken away from the users.

If a user builds corpora and runs out of space, they can delete some corpora to make space for new corpora. If the user needs a larger space than 1 million words, they can request additional space by clicking a button in the interface. An automatic email is sent to the admin.

Additional storage space

Your organization may have bought some additional space to be distributed among users who need it. The default 1 million cannot be taken away.

To approve storage space request or reassign space

If you received the request in an automatic email, click the link in the email, review or edit the requested the storage space and click Save User.
