Share your results with your entire organization or with specific colleagues by sending them a link that accesses the report.

As document owner, you can allow the other users to make modifications to a report. When you click on the Share button  , a popup dialog window opens. In that window, you can search by username or email address of the user you want to share your document with. You can also simply copy the link to share to your report and share it with people without PlagScan account.

On the right side of the search box, you will find two icons (select the desired option by clicking on the drop-down menu).

  • If you want to allow the other user only to view the report, click on the icon in a form of an eye  .
  • If you want the other user to be able to edit the report as well, click on the icon in a form of a pencil  .

In the share popup window, you will also find an overview of all users which currently have personalized share access to the document, including the mode (view/edit) and the option to delete (x) a share permission.
