How does sharing work on Algor?
With Algor you can customise your maps and documents with other users and share changes in real time.
How do I manage the sharing permissions of my material on Algor Maps?
When sharing maps and documents with friends and colleagues, it is possible to manage sharing permissions in 3 ways: 1) The 'Can see' recipient will only be able to see the shared item without being able to edit it directly. The only way to edit it will be to create a personal copy. 2) The 'Can edit' recipient will be able to see and edit the item. Changes will be accessible to all users who have access to the item. 3) The 'owns' recipient will be able to see, edit and change permissions on the shared item.
How can I share my material with other users?
You can share maps and documents with friends and colleagues in two ways: 1) Share by e-mail. Enter the email address of the recipient, click on '+' and then on 'Share'. You can now manage the permissions for each user to whom you have shared your material. The recipient will find the item you shared with them in the 'Shared with me' section. 2) Share via link. In this way you can copy a link and send it to the recipients: - Restricted access, only invited persons can access this item. - Anyone who has the link, anyone who surfs the Internet and has this link can access this item with the relevant permissions.
