If you share a link from the URL bar they won’t be able to see anything. If you publicly share it they will only see the map later you are sharing and cannot change it. If you share privately the other user needs to sign up with a username and password and can view the map almost the same as you except they can’t re share it.
The private sharing (“With another user”) will let them see the same views you can see in your account (all of the layers, and include the base layer), and will add it to their dashboard. They won’t be able to edit the names, or delete the map though.
It’s a good question though - I’ll update the documentation to explain this process, as we haven’t done a great job of that so far.
I, too would like to share without the end user needing an account.
I don’t get the various share options as shown in this post.
Then again, I do not have a paid subscription to Drone Deploy yet.
Are those options only for subscribers? That would make sense.
We’re still evaluating several software platforms and I’m liking Drone Deploy more and more with each use.
Public sharing lets anyone see only the layer you shared without needing an account or logging in.
Private sharing is how you can have fine-grained access to who can view all of your layers and create annotations etc. They need an account to ensure access control and data privacy, but this can be a free account.
I sent the link to another computer that is not logged into drone deploy. When I click the link I get the logon screen in the attached picture…this is not convenient for my customers…sending one screen at a time is not sufficient either…Can I create a separate login for my customer?
Using the public share link, is it possible for the visitor to see the orthoimage overlaid on the basemap? I have only been able to see the orthoimage itself without the basemap/satellite layer underneath.
This may have changed since Jono’s post a month ago. Our external sharing options will have more options going forward (we’re beginning to work on them within the next couple of weeks). Thanks for your patience in the meanwhile.
There’s one more thing I’ve noticed in the process … the different vegetative index calculations don’t seem to change anything anymore. You might want to check that out as well. None of these dropdowns or sliders result in any change in the Plant Health map.
