Share view


By using the Share view option you can now allow other users to see the current view of any module almost just the same way you see it (shared can be e.g. selected Column Views or Layout mode). The view can be shared by sending an automatically generated URL link. Remember that the shared view may vary because of Security settings that are still respected and not shared. Also, if there is any mismatching between the environments (e.g. shared parameter name is different in different versions) the value will not be overwritten and the user settings or default values will be used.

The shareable URL link is active for 90 days. After this time, the configuration will be deactivated.

Opening shared view settings will overwrite your local settings. After receiving the URL link, you can decide whether your local settings should be overwritten or if you want to keep them the way they are.

Shareable data

When a user shares a view on the Gantt module or the Overview timeline, the URL also contains the zoom level and position on the viewport. 

The person who opens the link and adjusts the view settings can see the same taskbars as the person who shared the URL (there can be slight differences because of various screen sizes and resolutions).

The Share View feature of the app lets you share selected features by different modules. The overview of the features is presented in the table below:
