Share projects

You can share your project with others to show them what you’ve been working on, get their feedback or work on it together. Once you share a project, your collaborators will be able to edit it and share it with others.

Things you need to know

Before you start sharing, here are some things you should be aware of:

  • You can share projects with people you’ve previously collaborated with or invite new collaborators by providing their email address.

  • If you share a project with someone who doesn’t have a Cardanit account, they’ll receive an invitation to start a free trial so they can view and edit the project. They’ll have access to the project even after the trial has ended.

  • You can remove yourself from a project.

  • If you’re the owner of a project, you can unshare the project with specific users.

  • Cardanit enables real time collaboration. This means that while you’re working on a project, you can see who else is working on the project and what part they’re working on.

  • You can share a project from the Design, Simulate and Report pages and from My Files and Shared.

Collaborate in real time

See who else is online and working on the project at the same time as you. Any edits you and your collaborators make to the project will be seen by everyone at the same time.

When someone else is looking at the project you’ll receive a notification at the bottom of the screen telling you they’re online.

On the diagram, an avatar appears next to an element whenever someone selects it. If they edit any part of the diagram you’ll see it immediately.
