Sharing Projects in the Coginiti Team offers significant benefits. It simplifies the process of distributing assets across the catalog, streamlining communication among team members. This not only speeds up the process of code management and reuse, but also creates a more dynamic and efficient collaboration environment.
Share a project
- In the left sidebar navigate to the ‘Personal’ section of the Catalog.
- Find the Project you wish to share and right-click on it to access the context menu.
- Select ‘Share’ to initiate the sharing process.
- In the pop-up that appears, decide whether you're sharing with individual users or a group.
When sharing with a group, all direct and inherited members of that group gain access to the Project.
🔎 NOTE: Utilize the search function to filter through users by typing their names, making it easier to find and select the right participants for your Project.
- Choose the Access Level you wish to assign:
- Co-owner: Grants full control over the Project, allowing users to manage and share it further.
- Editor: Permits users to make changes to the Project's content but not share it with others.
- Viewer: Allows users to view the Project without the ability to edit or share.
- After setting the appropriate access level, click 'Share' to finalize the process.
Your Project will then appear in the 'Shared' section of the invited users' Catalog, ready for collaboration. This seamless integration of shared Projects empowers teams to work more cohesively and ensures that all members have access to contribute effectively to the collective effort.
🔎 NOTE: Maximize the 'Share' option to its full potential. Within shared Projects, you can leave comments on entries, make comment notes, and refer back to the history of issues tackled by the team within specific entries.
Whenever a user is given access to a Catalog Project, they receive a notification. This notification includes a direct link to the project in the 'Shared' section of the Catalog.
This feature ensures that new collaborators can quickly and easily find and begin working on the Project.
Owners will also be notified of any modifications made to their Catalog entries within shared projects. These notifications provide a direct link to the specific Catalog asset that was altered.
This level of transparency helps maintain a cohesive understanding of the Project's evolution and keeps all stakeholders informed.
🔎 NOTE: For a detailed understanding of changes made by other users, take advantage of the version history feature. This can be accessed directly from the notification link, allowing you to compare and review different versions of a Catalog asset.
