The Collaborate option is located in two areas. One area is the sharing drop down in the portfolio editor. Once a contributor has been added, this link will change to Manage Contributors.
When you click on Collaborate a new page will open up with specific information to fill out: Name, Email, and a message. To add a contributor simply type the person's full name, email address, and a personalized message in the appropriate boxes. Then, click the Finished button. An email will be sent asking the user to collaborate with you on the selected portfolio.
What is Collaborating?
The Collaborate feature allows multiple users to work on the same portfolio at the same time. Using an email invite, you will be able to invite others to work on the portfolio you created. This feature is only available for portfolios.
The email invite will provide the contributor with a link to access your portfolio, and will be prompted to login to his/her Foliotek Presentation account. If the contributor does not already have a Foliotek Presentation account, he/she will need to register for an account with the link provided.
Editing Collaborative Portfolios
As the owner, you will have control of all content, including the Portfolio Design (templates), Portfolio Title, Profile Content, and creating new shares. The contributors you add will be able to add new pages, edit content, and merge the changes they make to existing pages with shared pages.
NOTE: If two contributors are working on the same page at the same time, one contributor will always be overwriting the other contributor's data. TRY NOT TO EDIT THE SAME PAGE AT THE SAME TIME. If you are editing a page at the same time as another contributor, you will see this message:
Once you have added contributors, their names will be displayed under the heading Current Contributors. If a contributor has not yet accepted your request, the word [Pending] will be displayed next to the person's name until this is done.
At any time you may remove a contributor by clicking the remove link next to the contributor's name/email address.
