How does sharing with other iCharts users work?

Sharing your chart with another user is easy! When you share a chart by entering in an email address, the chart is made visible in the user’s gallery. You can share a chart with a colleague, for example, for feedback or you can share with your manager/clients, if you want them to review the chart you are working on. You can share a chart with a friend to show them something you're working on for your blog. Here are the steps involved in sharing a chart:

  1. In the studio where you are creating the chart, Click the Share menu select Share with Another User:


     

  2. A share window will pop-up. Enter the email address of the person with whom you wish to share the chart. You can enter more than one email address, separated by a comma.


     

  3. The users will be notified about the chart you've shared with them via email and the next time they login, they will be able to view your chart in their gallery. The person you have shared it with will only be able to view the chart; they will not be able to perform any edits. Whether or not they can share or embed your chart is determined by the privacy settings you have set.
    1. If your chart is a Personal Chart, then the users you have shared it with will only be able to preview your chart, download an image of it, organize it into a folder of theirs or remove it from their gallery,
    2. If your chart is a Public Chart, then the users you have shared it with will be able to preview your chart, download an image of it, organize it into a folder of theirs or remove it from their gallery. Since it is a public chart, users will have access to the embed code and the chart URL. They will also be able to share the chart with their social network from the gallery.
    3. If your chart is a Private Chart (Charts behind Firewall & Paywalls), then the users you have shared it with will be able to preview your chart, download an image of it, organize it into a folder of theirs or remove it from their gallery. As a shared private chart, they will be able to have access to the embed code but the embed code will only display on the websites only you have warranted.
