Peak ResourceSpace: Quick Start Guide
What is ResourceSpace (RS)?
ResourceSpace is a cloud-based (web) application for providing users with easy access to Peak
Scientific documents and other digital assets (files of any type) anywhere there’s an internet
connection. Its key feature is ease of use, finding what you want is as easy as performing a Google
image search. For Peak’s Channel Partners it is a great tool for quickly getting access to the most up
to date information on the go.

How do I access it?
You can access RS anywhere you have an internet connection, including on mobile/tablet via data
or wifi, by visiting http://resources.peakscientific.com. We strongly recommend you bookmark
this in your preferred browser! Anyone can access the Peak RS, however, when not logged in,
users will only see public materials. To access any company controlled document types, you are
required to login.

To request access use the panel on the bottom right hand corner, you may need to scroll down
below the Simple Search panel. Once your request has been received we need to do some short
internal checks, after this has been completed Peak will approve your access request and send your
account details to the provided email address.

How do I find things?
The key is simplicity. You don’t need to worry about navigating to sections or knowing anything
about filing structure or where to look. Simply use the search bar on right hand side and enter a
search term or string before hitting enter key, just as you would when using Google or any other
search engine. You can narrow down the results to the resource “type” you require by checking the
boxes in Simple search (default searches all types).
This can be a product name or multiple words. Eg. “precision hydrogen trace manual” or “nm32la
service manual” or simply a part-name eg. “NM32” or “Infinity”.
Search results and Download
The search results page will show all assets relating to your search term (remember you can narrow
down to specific resource type), simply click on the image thumbnail or name and you will be taken
to the specific resource. Here you can click to download the file you need (usually the Original file,
but also screen-resolution and print-ready versions available) or you can click on the document
image to preview – then click the “>” symbol to move to next page. This is handy for a quick
preview of a multi-page document without downloading to your computer or device.

Customize your view
You can easily customize your search results view to show more or less results per page and increase
or decrease the thumbnail size, using the “Display” icons in the top left hand of screen, just under
the Peak logo. You can also change the order of the results depending on relevance to search made.
ResourceSpace allows users to quickly and easily create collections. These are simply bundles of
resources you want to gather together for convenience to keep in a saved “bundle” for any time in
the future whenever you are logged in. These collections are specific to each user, but can be shared
with others if required.
Collections are managed via the bar at bottom of page (drag this up if it’s partially hidden from view)
where you can create new collections and then add resources easily by clicking on the resource and
selecting “Add to collection”. Think of collections as shopping baskets that you can keep for future
use – handy for collecting multiple files you need before downloading as a single collection for
My Collections 1
Add to Collection
You will see some Featured Collections on the homepage of ResourceSpace. These are the large
panels with names, eg. Brand Collateral, Precision Series, Peak Protected, etc. These are collections
of material we have collated for your convenience, and a good starting point for commonly
requested items or topics. We will add to these frequently and create new ones based on demand.
How do I share a resource?
There are two ways to share a resource depending on who the intended recipient is. To share a
resource, simply click the word “Share” on the resource page.
Share a resource 1
On the next page click the “Generate URL” button.
Share a resource 2
The link generated can then be copied and sent to anyone with a log in to Resourcespace so long as
the user has access to that resource type. For example, a user with Staff access could not share a
controlled document with a user with Staff (Service) access but they could share a data sheet.
Share a resource 3
To share a resource with an external user, click “Generate and external URL” and copy the link to
send this to a user without Resourcespace access or a user with Resourcespace access but without
access to the particular resource type.
