Overleaf is a collaborative LaTex editor. Overleaf is offered as a web application in the cloud. The IMT operates the free Overleaf version "Community Server" locally installed at Paderborn University, where the data is processed exclusively at the university. This can be used by all university members with a valid Uni Account.
If a section wishes to cooperate with external persons, the section sends an e-mail to the IMT. The IMT then makes a contact person from the subject group an administrator in Overleaf. This person can now invite external people via a new menu item in the web interface and then share projects with them.
Use can be requested via the service portal:
Short instructions on how to set up access can be found in the HelpWiki:
Beyond operating and setting up access, the IMT cannot offer any content support. For questions about LaTex and the use of Overleaf, please use the Overleaf web pages:
