Faculty, graduate students, postdocs and staff can use the CAP Network to work more closely with each other, share files, and stay on top of what's happening at Stanford University.

CAP Network can help you:

Prepare for meetings

Look up someone's profile, and you'll not only get accurate contact information, but a snapshot of his or her background and who you may know in common.

Find experts and resources

Post a question and tap into the expertise of your colleagues on any topic, including vendor recommendations, internal policies, best practices for a lab technique, and more.

Organize team projects

Form a group to collaborate privately with on-site and remote team members. A group feed not only helps you stay on top of your project's progress, but it gives new team members a history of your collaborations to help get them up to speed.

Discover new research and training opportunities

Track what’s going on across organizational silos and discover untapped collaborators and new mentors.

Ensure operational consistency

Create a department or lab group to keep everyone up to date on workflow and policies changes, and get people's input on process improvements.

Take your proposal or presentation to a new level

Securely share large files and get feedback from colleagues on the projects that matter to you. You can click to follow the discussion to get automatic updates when new versions of the file are uploaded.

Conduct confidential discussions

Create a private forum to collaborate on sensitive research and educational projects. Note: CAP does not currently support the handling of protected patient information. A future release, however, will offer HIPAA-compliant groups.

Enrich team learning and mentorship

Assign readings, share resources, and track student discussion through a private class group.

Advocate for the issues you care about

Be it sustainability, global health or stem cells, form an affinity group where members of the university community can share information and organize a plan of action.

Reduce redundant efforts

Reach out to other campus units to identify common challenges and join efforts to come up with the best solutions.

Get real-time updates on evolving situations

Tap the expertise of your colleagues no matter where you are using your mobile phone. Team members can send you updated notes as you're en route to a presentation, or help with on-the-fly coordination when you're in the field.

Promote your event

Get the word on an upcoming event or lecture to your target audience by posting an announcement to a relevant group discussion.
