5. Delegating Tasks to Another Person

Delegate a person to do the importing and tagging of publications for you.


  • This person should be a ZORA submitter (e.g. in your secretary or someone from your library).
  • You should know the shortname of the person you wish to delegate a task.
  • The delegated person cannot have an ORCID iD.

Click on ORCID in the ZORA menu bar. Here you will see the section delegated user under the user settings. Enter the UZH short name of the delegated person here and click the update delegated users button. You can define several users who are allowed to provide publications in ZORA with your ORCID iD on your behalf.
