Sharing - all or nothing?

  • Idea
  • Updated 2 years ago
  • Implemented
Sharing is great, in principle. But if I'm using Springpad for work projects then I'd rather only share one project springpad with its client rather than the current all or nothing setup.

Also, when sharing, are those people you're sharing with able to edit anything? It would be handy if they could add notes and set up meeting etc.

Any plans for this?

Hey guys - Just wanted to share some more insight on the idea of sharing...

So, sharing means defining data groups that can be shared with certain groups of people, defining those people, inviting them in, kicking them out, setting & maintaining permissions, tracking & reporting changes, all the while maintaining ownership of the original data. Then, what happens if the non-owner deletes an item or wants to make it public or make a copy of it to add to another notebook to share with her mother-in-law... Anyway, see where I'm headed with this?

We've definitely thought about the idea of sharing & collaboration a bunch (as evidenced by some of what I've just mentioned), and we continue to talk and think about it pretty regularly. It's been a hot topic for years (oh my!) now, and you guys still want it!

So, we're not saying no, we're just saying not right now. We'll continue to keep this on our list of things to consider, design & implement in the future.

Hope that helps!

Just wanted to give an update on this - Given all of the passionate user responses on this topic, we are beginning to put some effort into figuring out how to implement collaboration / private sharing.... Continue to post examples of how you'd like this to work, we'll be referencing this thread again & again.

Hey guys - we implemented collaboration in our major update last month: http://springpad.com/blog/2012/04/sha...

You can now invite other people into the your notebooks so you can work on them together - this is possible whether you make your notebook is public or private. Learn more about privacy settings here: http://springpad.com/blog/2012/04/how...
