Collaboration and Sharing Options

To share a project with collaborators or viewers, open it and go to Project > Share in the top menu. A window will pop-up showing you the sharing options:

Share your project with a link

The link sharing option lets you share your project with others others via a link that they can use to open the project. This option is disabled by default. Once you enable it, anyone that you share the links with will be able to access it. Two links are provided:

Share without editing permissions (view-only)

Anyone with this link can view the project, but they cannot modify it in any way. The viewer will still be able to create an editable copy of their own using the Copy button in the left menu.

The view-only link that is generated takes into account which files are currently opened, so that when someone opens the project using the link, the same files will be opened. You can use this feature, e.g., to show a README file immediatelly after the project is opened. You can set a terminal welcome message for users that open the project using the view-only link. Click on Edit welcome message in the share window to set the message.

Share with editing permissions

Anyone with this link can edit the project and its files. For that reason, you should only share this link with people that you trust.

Share your project through direct invitation

The safest sharing option is through direct invitation. This option lets you share the project with specific PIFOP users, essentially creating a white-list of users that can access your project. Each user in the white-list will receive an email invitation to the project, through which they will be able to open and edit it.
