Share Farm Definition
You have already created your own Farmapper project. Now you want to share it with others to show someone your project details or you want someone to contribute to the project with you. Maybe you are thinking about selling a farm and want to throw up a virtual due diligence room. In all these cases and more, using the private sharing function for your projects is a great way to bring folks together to work on a project.
To make project sharing available, tap on the "Projects" button to expand dropdown list and choose „Share project” Figure 1 and you will be moved to the "Projects" window Figure 2.

Sharing your project privately is easy following some very simple steps:
- Select from the "Share project" drop-down list the project that you want to share.
- Enter the email address of the person you want to share the project with in the "with user" bar. Double check that the email address you entered is correct.
- Do you want the person to be able to make changes to your project. If so check "Can modify". If you do not want to give permissions to make changes to your project, check the "Readonly" option.
- Last thing to do is to tap "Share". When you share a project with another registered user, he will receive a message stating that they have received permissions to the project.
Figure 2: Project sharing window
If you share your project with someone who is not yet a registered user of Farmapper, they will receive an email that a project has been shared and also the following message: "In order to get the access you just have to create an account here". Clicking on the link, a window will appear that allows the user that the project was shared with to register via one of three applications: Google, Facebook or Twitter Figure 3. Now they create an account by choosing the login method and they can view your project. The project is found in “Manage” and the "Shared with you". Projects owned by you are in “Your Projects”. Projects that are owned by others, but shared with you are in “Shared with you”.
