Request delegate status for many individuals - Option 2

To request delegated management rights for many people you may email the Manchester eScholar team directly.

When establishing delegated management relationships in this way, delegators will not receive email notifications of your request. It is therefore important that you seek the appropriate approval locally before any request is made to the Manchester eScholar support team.

Email requests should be sent to:
