In the context of the URR, user types are generic groups of users of earth observations or derived information. The goal is to identify types of users sufficiently different from each other in terms of information needs and/or relations to decision making.

The edit functions are described in detail in the Edit tutorials included in the General section for the Publish menue, specifically for the functions New, Edit/View all, Copy, Save, and Cancel.

Clicking on the 'User Types' button of the Publish menu brings you to a page with the list of all published user types.

Although 'Save' will carry out a check for uniqueness of the entry name, it is recommended to check the URR for similar or identical user type names before entering an anticipated new user type name into a blank form.
